OnePlus 5T Android Oreo Update Now Officially Rolling Out With OxygenOS 5.0.2
This month, we’ve seen the OnePlus 5T receive two new beta builds. Open Beta 2 brought new clipboard features and performance optimizations, and Open Beta 3, which was announced just yesterday, introduced iPhone X-style navigation gestures. But the next Oreo-based update is expanding beyond the beta channel: This morning, OnePlus announced that OnePlus 5T customers who’ve stuck to stable firmware will soon get an upgrade to OxygenOS version 5.0.2.
OxygenOS 5.0.2 for the OnePlus 5T updates some of OnePlus’s in-house applications and contains a couple of system-level changes, including a new design for the Quick Settings menu. It’s also the first official Android 8.0 Oreo-based update for the OnePlus 5T’s stable firmware branch, and brings AOSP Oreo features like picture-in-picture mode, Notification Dots, Smart Text Selection, and more.
When it comes to the aforementioned application updates, you’ll notice that the launcher has been updated to version 2.2, the gallery has been updated to version 2.0, the weather application has been updated to version 1.9 and the file manager has been updated to version 1.7.6.
Finally, OxygenOS 5.0.2 has a CPU security patch (CVE-2017-13218) and “general bug fixes and improvements”. Here’s the full changelog:

OnePlus’s Open Beta program tends to see updates more frequently than the stable channel, which gives the team time to test new features and squash bugs. Beta updates tend to focus on flashy new features, but the stable updates are much more refined. Since most of the people who own a OnePlus smartphone are on a stable build of OxygenOS, the company tests them much more thoroughly.
OnePlus says OxygenOS 5.0.2 will roll out to a small percentage of users starting today, and begin to roll out more broadly in a few days.
