OnePlus 5 and 5T Android Pie Update

This holiday season, we’ve seen Xiaomi and Samsung fueling their devices with Android Pie. Now OnePlus has also started pushing the Android 9.0 Pie update to its OnePlus 5 and OnePlus 5T smartphones.

The update is based on OxygenOS 9.0 and includes December 2018 security patch. So, you not only get the sweetness of Pie but also updated security. However, you may not get the Digital Well-Being in OnePlus 5 and 5T after the Pie update.

The company reported, “Digital Wellbeing is currently available only to Pixel devices and Nokia 7 Plus. This may change in near future and OnePlus 6 may be added to its supported device list.

Below is the full changelog of the update:

  • System
    • Updated system to Android™ 9 Pie™
    • Brand new UI for Android Pie
    • Brand new navigation gestures (Available for OnePlus 5T only)
    • Updated Android security patch to 2018.12

The Android Pie update on OnePlus 5/ OnePlus 5T is rolling-out over-the-air (OTA) so initially, it’ll reach a small percentage of users. Though, a broader rollout is expected in a few days.
