According to OnePlus, an incremental rollout of the new update for OnePlus 3 and OnePlus 3T has started and will be reaching a small percentage of users starting Sunday and a wider rollout of the OxygenOS 5.0 update will be done...

A few OnePlus 3/3T users in the European markets have already received the latest OxygenOS 5.0 update.

Highlights include "Parallel Apps", which is a feature that lets you clone certain apps so you can log in with more than one account. Feature number 2 is Picture in Picture. Another welcomed feature of the Android Oreo update for the OnePlus 3 and 3T is the "Picture-in-Picture" mode that is part and parcel of the Android Oreo (8.0) update.

The update bumps Oxygen OS to v5.0.

The new Android Oreo update brings an updated Launcher with added notification dots.

KitGuru Says: It's great that OnePlus 3 and 3T owners are finally able to catch up, but it does beg the question of how long is too long to receive an important update, especially regarding the security benefits?

So if you had $500 to spend on a new phone, which would you choose? Earlier today, OnePlus has been reported to work on Android Oreo through the company's Open Beta program.

From a common user point of view, why one will buy OnePlus 5 in place of OnePlus 5T when both of them same costing the same and the fresh one is coming with upgraded software and others. More or less, that promise now stands fulfilled. Now, the OnePlus 5T will go on sale Tuesday, November 21 for $499, putting OnePlus' latest flagship in the same camp as the the S8 and G6... at least in terms of pricing.

Back in June, OnePlus promised that Android 8.0 Oreo will make its way to the OnePlus 3 and OnePlus 3T, and now it's making good on its word.
