OxygenOS rolling out for OnePlus 8T w/ supposed battery life boosts, more camera tweaks

As seems customary after the release of a new device, OnePlus is giving the latest OnePlus 8T extra care and attention with its fourth update — OxygenOS — since it officially went on sale.

Previous OxygenOS updates for the OnePlus 8T were supposed to resolve a number of early issues with the device but it looks as though the update is needed to try and resolve any lingering camera problems — something that OnePlus just can’t quite seem to fix in post on any device.

The OxygenOS update should up the speed of fingerprint recognition and registering, plus boost the search speed in the default File Manager app. There are a number of other tweaks that were confirmed over on the OnePlus Forums, but still no room for the November 2020 security patch. You can check out the full changelog below:

If you haven’t already seen the OxygenOS update rolling out for your OnePlus 8T, then don’t fret. It should be rolling out in an incremental fashion, with a wider rollout expected over the coming days. As always, you can just fire up Oxygen Updater and grab the patch once it hits the database over there.
