OnePlus 8T update to OxygenOS optimizes 5G, power consumption, and more

OnePlus has released a new OxygenOS stable update for the OnePlus 8T that’s focused on optimizing the system, Bluetooth, and network for a better experience. One of the big changes is the optimization of OxygenOS’s “intelligent 5G function”, which the changelog says should extend the battery life of the 8T.

In terms of overall system performance, the release of OxygenOS for the OnePlus 8T promises to improve power consumption and reduce heat generation. The update also improves system stability and fixes an issue where icons don’t display on the home screen.

In addition, OxygenOS also makes some changes to Bluetooth performance, including improved connection stability, and a fix to the gallery that saw some abnormal display issues when loading a preview photo. There doesn’t appear to be any major new features in the update, but it should provide OnePlus 8T owners with a better experience.
