Though OnePlus has been prompt at providing Oreo updates for its eligible phones, the rollout has faced hiccups in the process. The OnePlus 3/3T Oreo rollout was first but it got postponed due to bugs in the OTA build. Sadly, now the OnePlus 5 Oreo build has succumbed to such bugs too.
The Oneplus 5 was on Oreo beta for a while and at the end of December, a stable OTA was Oto wait some more for a stable Oreo update.
OnePlus has now added the following note to the update’s forum page:
Edit: Because of a bug on Oxygen 5.0, we have cancelled its global release. And we’re preparing for Oxygen 5.0.1, the partial release will go live soon.
Based on the OnePlus 3T OTA observation, the OnePlus 5 Oreo update could have had battery drain issues and stability problems. Before the OnePlus 3T builds were pulled, users experienced same issues and seeing that the OnePlus 5 has the same type of Oxygen OS 5.0 build, it might have run into same problems.
Either way, this is a temporary setback, so don’t worry as OnePlus is working on a bug fix. Users on the stable build will soon see an Oxygen OS 5.0.1 OTA soon.
