OnePlus was not impressive at this chapter, yet the company made some major changes to overcome the issues with their software updates. At this point, the truth is that not many phones are rocking Android Oreo and that includes big names from the market, yet it isn’t the case for the OnePlus 3T handset.
OnePlus 3T users have already experienced the Android 8.0 Oreo update before as part of the company’s closed beta programme, but I am talking about a different situation this time. You can now install the official Android Oreo-based Oxygen OS 5.0 on your OnePlus 3T and the best part is that the incremental rollout of OxygenOS 5.0 for the OnePlus 3T has already started.
A broader rollout of Oreo update can be expected in a few days too, yet not all of you feel comfortable with the idea of waiting. If you are one of them, the procedure here described is perfect for you.
Note that the below operation can be applied on phones running the previous stable OOS 4.5.1 or current Open Beta (Open Beta 27/18).
