OxygenOS 5.0/Android 8.0 Oreo update resumes for OnePlus 5

OnePlus offered a nice Christmas gift to OnePlus 5 owners last year, but little did we know that the OxygenOS 5.0 based on Android Oreo would be pulled only days later. The culprit? A bug that would cause issues with third-party camera application.

Apparently, issues with some European carriers have been blamed for halting the roll-out of the update as well. A few days ago, OnePlus announced that it’s already working on OxygenOS 5.0.1, which is supposed to contain fixes for the bugs mentioned earlier.

Today, OnePlus confirmed it has issued a small fix for …

Autofill completes blank fields based on how you filled out similar forms in the past. And Android Instant Apps lets you run an app from your browser without stopping to install it on your phone.

Other features that come with the update include a revised camera UI for the OnePlus 5, a new …
