OnePlus 5 Oreo update: What to expect

Well, Oreo update gets you some of the most anticipated features for the Android OS, like PIP (picture-in-picture), Autofill, revamped Settings app, and such. It’s not as major an update as previous version change of Android OS brought us, but given that Android is already pretty feature rich OS, it’s the under-the-hood improvements in OS that matter more than anything now.

That’s why, the faster boot-up times (upto 2X for Pixel!) and stable OS performance count equally good as the above features.

Since OnePlus 5 runs on stock UI for the most part, the Android 8.0 update will look and run similar to how it runs on Pixel, which got the update directly from Google. Though, you would see the customization carried over the Android 8.0 from 7.1.1, and baking them into Android 8.0 is what that will take OnePlus some time.

OnePlus 5 Oreo update release: When to expect it

  • Oreo confirmed for the OnePlus 5
  • Release expected in October-November 2017

In a recent Reddit AMA, OnePlus team did confirm that OnePlus 5 will be their first device to receive Oreo treatment from them, something that’s obvious too. But what caught our eye more was the fact that OnePlus is planning faster than earlier release this time around.

For the Nougat, it took them until December 31 to release the Android 7.0 OTA for their OnePlus 3 and 3T, but with Android 8.0 and OnePlus 5, it seems they are putting in efforts to roll out update well before December begins.
