OnePlus is now rolling out a new update for the OnePlus 5, the OxygenOS 4.5.11. The company has started rolling out this update to consumers, and even though it might not be available to all of you this very moment, it will gradually roll out to all OnePlus 5 devices in the next couple of days. In case you’re wondering, this update is not based on Android 8.0 Oreo, you’ll have to wait a bit longer in order to get Android 8.0 Oreo-based OxygenOS on your OnePlus 5, as the company is still testing it.
Having said that, OnePlus did release the changelog for this update, and along with general bug fixes, this update brings some other changes as well. Once you install it, your phone will support customization for notification ringtones, while OnePlus has also improved the speed of opening apps. Adaptive brightness has also been tweaked in this update, and it will do a better job of adapting your display brightness, allegedly, while the company has also fixed a bug with YouTube that has been bothering some users. YouTube videos will no longer lag behind audio, which is a bug that has been present in the previous build for some users, it seems. OnePlus says that it also fixed some UI issues that have been present, and the Android security patch for September is also included in this update. And last, but not least, the 4G+ network was not available in some regions where it should have been available before, but that will no longer be an issue once you install this update.
As you can see, OnePlus did not exactly add new features with this update, but a number of fixes have been included here, along with a new security patch which should take care of the BlueBorne Bluetooth vulnerability as well. The OnePlus 5 is the latest smartphone OnePlus introduced, it’s the company’s flagship smartphone, and it is made out of metal, while it sports a 5.5-inch fullHD Optic AMOLED display. This phone comes in both 6GB and 8GB RAM variants, and this update is rolling out to both of those variants as we speak. Your phone will notify you once the update is available, but you can also check whether it’s available on your own via ‘Settings’.
