Here is another OxygenOS update for the older OnePlus phones. The OnePlus 5 and OnePlus 5T can now receive the OxygenOS 9.0.6 upgrade. The last OnePlus 5 series related news we heard was back in January when the OxygenOS 9.0.1 update was released. That one only came days after the first OxygenOS 9 OTA rolled out. We may have missed the other versions that followed but don’t worry, the 9.0.6 build is more than ready for the OnePlus 5 and OnePlus 5T.
The changelog lists a number of important updates including general bug fixes and system improvement plus the latest Android security patch to 2019.5.
Bluetooth connectivity is also improved with support for Quick Pairing of Bullets Wireless 2. The problem of automatic answering failing while still connected to a Bluetooth Headset has also been fixed already.
OnePlus 5 and OnePlus 5T owners are encouraged to get this particular OxygenOS update and share with the OnePlus team your feedback–good or bad. Improvement in many areas and better optimizations can still be expected in the coming days and weeks.
The OxygenOS 9.0.6 update has also been released for the OnePlus 6. New versions have also been released for the following OnePlus phones:
• OxygenOS 9.5.7 for OnePlus 7 Pro
• OxygenOS 9.0.14 for OnePlus 6T
• OxygenOS 9.0.6 for OnePlus 6
• OxygenOS Open Beta for OnePlus 6/6T
• Android Pie-based OxygenOS 9.0.2 for OnePlus 3/3T
• OxygenOS 9.0.1 OnePlus 5, OnePlus 5T
The OnePlus 5 is a three-year-old series. It was first announced in 2017 when it came out with dual rear cameras, a Snapdragon 835 chipset, and a familiar design. It was one controversial device because of reports of benchmark cheating and overclocking. Some other issues we learned over the past years include the reboot problem, jelly scrolling, audio channels not switching, stuttering, Qualcomm issue, and restarts when dialing 911.
The OnePlus 5 is relatively an impressive phone with good scores for both Mobile and Video on DxOMark. If you one a OnePlus 5 or OnePlus 5T, don’t think it’s really old. A quick OS update may do the trick and make it somewhat brand new.
