OnePlus 5 owners, OnePlus has a couple of holiday gifts for you.
The OnePlus 5 is now receiving its first official Android Oreo update. This update is OxygenOS 5.0 and is based on Android 8.0. It includes a number of improvements in addition to Oreo, like the December 2017 security patches and a new Camera UI design.
Here’s everything that OnePlus says is included with this update:
Updated to Android O (8.0)
- Optimizations for Shelf
- Now you can upload your photo through Shot on OnePlus
- New Camera UI design
- Optimizations for photo quality
- Added beauty effect for Portrait Mode
- Added “Places” tab for viewing photos on a map
- Added history feature
- Added alarm calendar feature
- Added Parallel Apps feature
- New design for Quick Settings
- New design for Lift up display
- Added “Adaptive model” screen calibration
- Optimizations for Wi-Fi
- Optimizations for Battery Saver
- Updated Android security patch to December
This is an incremental update, meaning that it’ll hit a small number of OnePlus 5 devices today and then expand to more in a few days.
OnePlus co-founder Carl Pei has some more good news for OnePlus 5 owners. Pei revealed today that the Face Unlock feature found on the OnePlus 5T will be coming to the OnePlus 5 “due to popular demand.” There’s no word on when this feature will be coming, but at least OP5 owners now know that it’s happening.
Due to popular demand, Face Unlock is coming for the OnePlus 5. Thanks for the feedback, and merry Christmas!
