While most of the Android OEMs provide at most 2 major updates for their devices, OnePlus always has been an exception with its exceptional support for the devices. If we think of a brand that could provide three major updates in the Android world, then there aren’t many, barring Google and OnePlus obviously. As such, OnePlus has started officially pushing the stable Android 10 for the OnePlus 5/5T after bringing it on OnePlus 6/6T and OnePlus 7/7 Pro series.
OnePlus 5/5T users couldn’t be happy anymore as the update marks the third major update for the OnePlus 5/5T. The fact that the devices which launched with Android 7.1.1 onboard a long time ago in the year of 2017 are getting major update treatment even now is something worth appreciation.
Speaking of the update, it comes in at around 1.9GB in size. The changelog is similar to the one we’ve seen in the initial beta. Nonetheless, have a look at the full changelog given below.
