OxygenOS rolls out for OnePlus 8T w/ Canvas AOD wallpaper, more

The OnePlus 8T has only just been unveiled, but its very first update is now rolling out in the form of OxygenOS

As the OnePlus 8T is now official, the first post-release update should now be rolling out with the missing Canvas wallpaper Always-on display feature being the notable addition. It has been confirmed over on the official OnePlus Forums and is being made available via an incremental OTA update.

The OxygenOS update is, therefore, the first post-release update for 8T hardware and the first post-OxygenOS 11 update release for any OnePlus device. It brings a number of notable fixes alongside some general changes and some camera tweaks — with a particular focus on the Nightscape video mode and white balance across all camera modes.

Another notable improvement added with OxygenOS is to network stability. This appears to have fixed some spotty Wi-Fi when connected to certain 2.4GHz networks on my own OnePlus 8T device but the changelog does state “communication functions” — which could mean almost anything. Overall, it’s a modest OxygenOS update but you can check out the full changelog below:
