OnePlus is gearing up for the launch of the OnePlus Nord and the OnePlus Buds in just a few days now. But the company hasn’t forgotten its current generation flagships. OnePlus is rolling out a new set of OxygenOS updates to the OnePlus 8 and OnePlus 8 Pro that brings over the latest July 2020 security patches, as well as support for OnePlus Buds.

The update has currently been spotted for OnePlus 8 Pro in the Indian region, but it should also make its way to other regions and to the other device as well. And we presume that the update will arrive sooner rather than later as it contains a fix for ARCore failure on the devices, which would be much needed considering that the OnePlus Nord is launching through an AR event.

The exact version of OxygenOS will change according to device and region, but the underlying changelog should majorly be the same across both the devices and regions, with the exception of the Red Cable Club (which remains India-exclusive so far) and wireless charging. Here is the full changelog:


  • System
    • Newly adapted OnePlus Buds, easier to take advantage of wireless connection
    • Provided a variety of clock styles for you. You can customize on your own. (Go to Settings > Customization > Clock style)
    • Optimized the touch experience in game mode to enhance the user experience
    • Fixed the issue that the wireless charger base re-started automatically
    • Fixed the ARCore failure
    • Updated Android Security Patch to 2020.07
    • Updated GMS package to 2020.05
    • Improved system stability
  • Network
    • Improved the performance and stability of Wi-Fi transfers
    • Improved connection stability of mobile network to improve user experience
  • Shelf
    • Newly added Red Cable Club membership card
