Download updated Android Pie images for your OnePlus 5 or 5T
OnePlus had a Christmas present for owners of its OnePlus 5 and 5T handsets -- an OTA update to Android Pie.
Now, a month later, the company has made Android 9.0.3 images available for download; perfect for those who like to manually flash their handsets. But this is not the same version of Pie that rolled out at the tail end of last year. OnePlus has introduced a number of important updates.
- Android Pie now rolling out to OnePlus 5 and OnePlus 5T
- Leak shows that Android Q will bring native face unlock to more phones
- Android Q leak shows dark mode, improved privacy and intriguing Desktop Mode
OTA updates can be notoriously slow to roll out, so even a month down the line it is entirely possible that you are still waiting to upgrade to the latest version of Android. If you're comfortable with manually flashing your phone, the new downloads give you the chance to do just that.
So what can you expect from the update? OnePlus has published the following changelog:
- Updated system to Android™ 9.0 Pie™
- Brand new UI for Android Pie
- Brand new navigation gestures (this is only for 5T)
- Updated Android security patch to 2018.12
