Oneplus has started to release a software update that installs Android 8.1 on Oneplus 5 and 5T. The update comes as usual over-the-air available for owners of the smartphones.
The Chinese manufacturer adds on the OnePlus 5T support for gestures on the entire screen, which take the place from the default buttons to go back or navigate to the home screen. In addition, the manufacturer reports that new optimisations have been implemented in game mode, using less power and allowing the adaptive brightness function to be paused.
Oneplus now releases the update for users, but this gradually goes on and reaches initially only a small number of users of one of the two phones. The manufacturer has announced that a wide roll-out of the update will only take place in a few days.
