OnePlus Releases OxygenOS 4.5.11 for the OnePlus 5

OnePlus has announced that they have released an incremental update to their Android based OxygenOS for the OnePlus 5.  The new build, 4.5.11, is rolling out today to a small group of users and assuming all goes well, it will start rolling out to a larger contingent of OnePlus 5 owners.

The update is fundamentally a bug fix and security update release.  The release brings the September Android Security Update to the device and it also fixes an issue with 4G+ networks that some users were experiencing in some regions of the world.

Here is the completely rundown of all of the fixes and improvements in this release of OxygenOS

  • Supports customization of notification ringtone
  • Improved launching speed of apps‎
  • Optimized adaptive brightness
  • Fixed issue of YouTube video lagging behind audio
  • Fixed display issues of some UI elements
  • Updated Android security patch to September
  • Fixed issue of no 4G+ network in some regions
  • General bug fixes

One of the big questions everyone has on their mind is if this update is based on Android Oreo?  The answer is no.  This build is still on Android Nougat 7.1.1 but OnePlus is working on the Oreo update and is expected to get it out before the end of the year.
