The #Oneplus 5 has released worldwide, and critics and fans claim that it is the best OnePlus device yet. The specs and features along with its low price range has impressed many, but the company is also dedicated to providing fans the latest updates so that the device can perform at its peak without any major issues. This is perhaps why the company has decided to push out the first firmware update for the #OnePlus 5 just days after its worldwide release.

New update for the handset

It is quite unusual for a company to roll out the software update for a smartphone, which has been launched just a couple of days back. However, this is exactly what the company has decided to do.

The first #Software Update for the OnePlus 5 will reach fans soon if they have not received it yet. It is rolling out as OxygenOS 4.5.2 and will weigh in at 36 MB.

The update will bring a host of improvements ranging from system stability, Bluetooth features, and network. The same version will also add optimization and compatibility to the smartphone’s camera for third-party camera apps. Apart from this, the update will also address certain issues during app installations and system update failures. For such a small size of the update, it will surely bring in a lot of improvements to the overall experience while using the device.

The small size can also be explained because the OnePlus 5 comes with the latest Android 7.1.1 Nougat operating system tailored to the company’s own Oxygen based OS.
