OxygenOS 4.5.5 Rolling Out to The OnePlus 5

OnePlus has begun the process of rolling out OxygenOS 4.5.5 to their new flagship, the OnePlus 5.  The update has been released to a small subset of devices already and assuming that all goes smoothly, a broader distribution will happen later this week.  The update has a handful of fixes and optimizations for the new phone.  Credit where it is due:  OnePlus has been pushing out updates to OxygenOS and the OnePlus 5 at a pretty rapid pace since it’s launch last month.

Fixes in this build of the Android Nougat based OxygenOS 4.5.5 include a fix to the Wi-Fi signal indicator which always showed it as week, a fix for some apps which would not work under IPv6 and a fix that restores connectivity to a Windows 10 PC.  The release notes for this update indicate that you need to turn off USB debugging prior to the upgrade to assure this is fixed.

Optimizations in this release include further improvements to Wi-Fi connectivity, clearer voice call and vibration intensity when receiving calls has been tuned down to be a bit more gentle.  Also, video recording now consumes less battery power.

There is no indicator in the release notes that the Android Security patch has been updated in this release as it appears that this is purely a bug fix & optimization release.

Look for the update to hit your OnePlus 5 over the next few days.
