OnePlus 8 and 8 Pro get OxygenOS 10.5.6/10.5.7/10.5.8 with April 2020 patches and many display, camera, and system optimizations
OnePlus recently published the kernel source code for the OnePlus 8 family to help the aftermarket development community. The company has also released a couple of bug fix updates till date to address the controversial green screen and black crush issues. Now OnePlus has started rolling out yet another set of updates for these phones that bring in several improvements as well as bump the Android security patch level (SPL) to April 2020.
Due to the fact that OnePlus is maintaining multiple region-specific builds, the version numbering scheme of OxygenOS is rather convoluted nowadays. In a nutshell, the OnePlus 8 owners in India and International regions should expect OxygenOS 10.5.7 as the new OTA, while those in Europe should expect to receive OxygenOS 10.5.6. For the update scenario of the OnePlus 8 Pro, the company has rolled out OxygenOS 10.5.8 for EU, Indian, and International models.
