New OnePlus 5 & 5T Update Boosts Security, Improves Camera & More

Oneplus 5t AH NS hardware

The OnePlus 5 and 5T have started receiving a new stable update which not only boosts security, but it improves the camera experience as well. That’s not all, as several additional entries have been included in the changelog.

This update is marked as OxygenOS 10.0.1 for both devices, by the way. The update brings an updated GMS package to August 2020, and it also brings an Android Security Patch for September 2020.

That being said, the camera experience has also been improved, as OnePlus added Electronic Image Stabilization. This will essentially enable a more stable shooting experience with the phone’s cameras.


Some OnePlus 5 and 5T units had what OnePlus calls “an abnormal call recording issue”, and that has been fixed now. The company also de-activated the alarm issue when the phone was powered off.

The last entry in the changelog has to do with full screen gestures, and this entry regards the OnePlus 5T only. The back gesture from the bottom of the screen is now available on the device.

This update is rolling out as we speak. It will arrive to your phone OTA (Over The Air), of course. The update did start rolling out, though it may not arrive straight away. This is a staged rollout, as per usual, so you may have to wait a couple of days, maybe even a week.

Using a VPN to speed up the process probably won’t work, so keep that in mind. The rollout is not regional, OnePlus is basically rolling it out randomly to the OnePlus 5 and 5T devices.

It’s nice to see that the company is still supporting these two handsets. The OnePlus 5 and 5T were announced back in 2017, and the company did admit the lack of updates for them recently. Well, OnePlus is looking to set things straight, as you can see.
