OnePlus is going hard with the software updates on the 8T, as OxygenOS 126.96.36.199 is now rolling out for the latest device — making it the second update in the space of two weeks.
The OxygenOS 188.8.131.52 update has a reasonably long changelog for a second device patch, but it still doesn’t appear to include the October 2020 security patch. We’re sure that it will come in a future update but it’s likely not going to be for a little while longer.
However, other notables include improvement to the thermals based upon power consumption, some display touch latency and mis-touch tweaks, status bar UI fixes, and a resolution for a problem whereby some people were unable to install apps from the Play Store.
That’s not all, as the OxygenOS 184.108.40.206 also includes yet more camera performance improvements, plus network stability boosts — likely for when on mobile data.
You can check out the full changelog below:
OxygenOS 220.127.116.11 for OnePlus 8T update changelog

The OxygenOS 18.104.22.168 update was officially confirmed over on the official OnePlus Forums and it will begin rolling out more widely in the coming days. The build comes in three distinct flavors with India getting the 22.214.171.124.KB05DA build, European markets getting the 126.96.36.199.KB05BA build, and North America getting the 188.8.131.52.KB05AA build.
However, it might be worthwhile checking Oxygen Updater if you are able to pull the app update for your OnePlus 8T device.
