What you need to know

  • OnePlus has started rolling out a new OxygenOS update for its latest flagship phones.
  • The update brings several minor improvements and the April 2020 Android security patch.
  • Unfortunately, the update doesn't bring a permanent fix for the display issues on some OnePlus 8 Pro units.

OnePlus rolled out the OxygenOS 10.5.5 update for the OnePlus 8 Pro last month, bringing a few camera optimizations and optimized touch sensitivity on the edges of the screen. Some users also reported that the update made the display green tint issue less noticeable than before. OnePlus is now rolling out a new OxygenOS update (opens in new tab) for both the OnePlus 8 Pro and the standard OnePlus 8 in India, Europe, and the U.S.

The latest update arrives as version 10.5.7 for the OnePlus 8 and 10.5.8 for the OnePlus 8 Pro. It brings improvements to "power consumption performance," Bluetooth connections, Wi-Fi performance, communication stability, and video playing effect at low brightness levels. There are a few minor camera enhancements too, with OnePlus claiming it has optimized HDR video effect for the 8 Pro and improved the shooting experience on both phones. The latest OxygenOS update also brings the April 2020 security patch to the two phones.

Here's the full changelog:

System

  • Optimized touch and interaction experience
  • Improved power consumption performance of the system
  • Improved the video playing effect when in low brightness
  • Improved system stability and fixed general issues
  • Updated Android Security Patch to 2020.04

Bluetooth

  • Improved stability and compatibility of Bluetooth connection

Camera

  • Optimized the HDR video effect
  • Improved the shooting experience with Camera and improved stability

Network

  • Enable 5G for Telia Norway (EU Only)
  • Improved the performance and stability of Wi-Fi transfer
  • Improved the stability of communication
  • Optimized network latency for online games and improved the smoothness

OnePlus is rolling out the update in batches, which means it isn't widely available just yet. If you don't want to wait for the OTA update, you can grab it using the third-party Oxygen Updater app from the Play Store (opens in new tab). To check for the OTA update manually, you will have to go to Settings > System > System updates.

  • Nothing on my OnePlus 8 Pro yet. The mobile ads for AC are so loud and obnoxious. I get you all need to make a couple bucks, but these game ads blast always when I'm somewhere it can be awkward.
  • Someone should remind OnePlus that it's May 😂 Learn from Samsung on how to push regular monthly security updates. So much praise for OnePlus on software updates when in fact they are so bad in keeping up with security patches.
  • Exactly, OnePlus are good for likes the first 3 months and then they slack off to numpty updates afternoon that, I on from when I firstly got my OnePlus 7T last year when it first came out.
