oneplus 8t oxygenos

The OxygenOS update is now rolling out for the OnePlus 8T with the aim of resolving some of the issues that many owners encountered after updating to the previous build.

Announced in an official OnePlus Forum post, the changelog is effectively the exact same as the previous build but includes a hotfix that resolves a problem whereby the media player would pause in a strange manner. Beyond that, the OxygenOS update still contains the slightly outdated November 2020 security patch, plus numerous tweaks for enhanced overall usability.

One notable is that this update might arrive as OxygenOS for those in European regions, as the previous update was already labelled Each region should have the following firmware builds:

  • IN:
  • EU:
  • NA:​
