With just days to go for the official launch of the OnePlus 6T smartphone, OnePlus is currently rolling out an update to the OnePlus 5 and OnePlus 5T from last year, both of whose last update was a beta package released in August.
Two months after rolling out the OxygenOS 5.1.5 update, OnePlus is now rolling out a stable build of the OxygenOS 5.1.6, which doesn’t bring Android 9 Pie to the devices yet. However, OnePlus has now officially confirmed that the OnePlus 5 and OnePlus 5T smartphones now come under the Project Treble initiative.
It’s to be noted that Project Treble was seeded to most devices as part of the OxygenOS 5.1.5 update but with OxygenOS 5.1.6, OnePlus has made it official that its flagship smartphones from last year will now support regular security and software updates.
In addition to Project Treble, OxygenOS 5.1.6 also brings support for VoLTE for Idea users in India and shifts the Android security patch level to October 1, 2018. The changelog also reveals that OnePlus has brought Improved Bluetooth stability when making phone calls wirelessly.
The OxygenOS 5.1.6 update is currently rolled out to OnePlus 5 and OnePlus 5T users as an over-the-air update and comes as a staged rollout, meaning only a limited number of users will be able to download and instal the update at the initial stage. If you haven’t received a prompt for the update yet, head over to Settings > System updates to check for updates manually.
