OnePlus 5T gets iPhone X-like navigation gestures

The new update also adds full-screen gesture support for the OnePlus 5T.

This update arrives as part of the stable OxygenOS 5.1.0 update, which also brings Android 8.1 Oreo to both devices.

The OnePlus 5T is equipped with a 6.01-inch QHD Optic AMOLED display, Snapdragon 835 processor, Adreno 540 graphics, 6GB/8GB RAM, 64GB/128GB storage, 16MP/20MP rear camera, 16MP front-facing camera, 3300mAh battery loaded with Oxygen OS 5.0.3 on top of Android 7.1.1 Nougat.

OnePlus is introducing the Android Oreo 8.1 update with its OxygenOS 5.1.0, and it also includes the April security patch from Google. OnePlus' bug report forum can be used to submit feedback and report bugs in the latest update.

The update is 766 MB in size, and as always, is rolling out incrementally over-the-air, hence, only a small percentage of users will receive it initially, with wider roll-out commencing soon.

With only a few days left for the official launch of the OnePlus 6, OnePlus has rolled out OxygenOS 5.1.0 with Android 8.1 Oreo for the OnePlus 5 and OnePlus 5T smartphones. Just tap on System updates, and the phone will check if the update is available for your phone. Do keep in mind that navigation gestures are not available for the OnePlus 5. It is worth noting that the OTA rollout is incremental, so not everyone will get it from the get-go, but you can force the update by installing a VPN app on your device, and selecting Canada or Germany in the options of a VPN app, which will let you download the OTA update immediately, no matter where you live. Gaming mode also adds network boost that includes network priority for gaming apps in the foreground. Launch update brings category tags in the search section of the app drawer, and Auto name folders based on category.
