I've said it before and I'll say it again – privacy and user security issues aside, one OnePlus's biggest strengths lies with speedy software updates. The company launched an open beta of Android Oreo for the OnePlus 5T at the tail-end of December, and just a month later, a public Oreo build is already rolling out.
The exact software version is OxygenOS 5.0.2, and it's the first public OxygenOS update that's based on Android 8.0 Oreo. As such, you can expect your standard Oreo updates such as picture-in-picture, notification dots, and more.
However, since this is a OnePlus phone, there are a few additional features to check out. There's a new design for the 5T's Quick Settings, its CPU has been updated to security patch level CVE-2017-13218, and there's a slew of updates for the built-in launcher, gallery, weather app, and file manager.
OxygenOS 5.0.2 will start arriving on devices today, but as with all updates, it'll be pushed out incrementally and should arrive on all handsets within a few days.
