OxygenOS rolls out for OnePlus 8T w/ alert slider, camera tweaks, plus more

OnePlus is going hard with the software updates on the 8T, as OxygenOS is now rolling out for the latest device — making it the second update in the space of two weeks.

The OxygenOS update has a reasonably long changelog for a second device patch, but it still doesn’t appear to include the October 2020 security patch. We’re sure that it will come in a future update but it’s likely not going to be for a little while longer.

However, other notables include improvement to the thermals based upon power consumption, some display touch latency and mis-touch tweaks, status bar UI fixes, and a resolution for a problem whereby some people were unable to install apps from the Play Store.

That’s not all, as the OxygenOS also includes yet more camera performance improvements, plus network stability boosts — likely for when on mobile data.

You can check out the full changelog below:

  • System

    • Fixed the issue that the status bar kept hovering on the screen in landscape mode
    • Fixed the issue that Play Store could not install the app
  • Camera

The OxygenOS update was officially confirmed over on the official OnePlus Forums and it will begin rolling out more widely in the coming days. The build comes in three distinct flavors with India getting the build, European markets getting the build, and North America getting the​ build.

However, it might be worthwhile checking Oxygen Updater if you are able to pull the app update for your OnePlus 8T device.
