OxygenOS 9.0.9 rolls out for the OnePlus 5/5T with October 2019 security patches
OnePlus’ OxygenOS is often claimed to be one of the best Android skins out there. It features a minimal design, fluid animations, and a variety of essential customization options that aren’t available in stock Android. OnePlus routinely delivers OxygenOS updates for its devices and it has had a pretty decent track record of supporting older phones, unlike most other manufacturers. In keeping with the trend, OnePlus is now rolling out OxygenOS 9.0.9 for the OnePlus 5 and the OnePlus 5T.
The latest update for OnePlus’ flagships from 2017 doesn’t include any major changes. According to the changelog shared on OnePlus’ forums, OxygenOS 9.0.9 for the OnePlus 5 and OnePlus 5T includes the Android security patch for October 2019, a fix for an issue with the expanded screenshots feature, and general bug fixes and improvements.
The post also mentions that the OTA will be rolled out only to a limited number of users at first. Once the company ensures that there are no critical bugs, the update should roll out to all the other users. So in case you haven’t received the update yet, I’d urge you to wait for a few days. However, if you don’t wish to wait any longer, you can download the update from the links below and manually install it on your device.
It’s worth noting that the OnePlus 5 and OnePlus 5T are also slated to receive OxygenOS 10 based on Android 10. However, you’ll have to wait quite a while before the update makes its way to your device. As per the update roadmap shared earlier this week, the devices are expected to receive the Android 10 update in Q2 2020. The roadmap also reveals that the OnePlus 6 and the OnePlus 6T will receive the stable Android 10 update next month, with the beta program expected to start later this month.
