OnePlus 5 and 5T start receiving stable Android 10 update

Back in 2017, OnePlus had launched the OnePlus 5 and 5T in June and November respectively. The smartphones shipped with Android 7.1 Nougat out of the box and are currently running Android 9 Pie. Now, both the OnePlus 5 and 5T are receiving stable version of Android 10 with OxygenOS 10.

OnePlus has officially announced the update, and confirmed that it will be available to a limited number of users today, with a broader rollout after a few days. This is to ensure there are no critical bugs in the update. The company also confirmed that the rollout isn’t region based. The OnePlus 5 and 5T are nearly three year old smartphones, and Android 10 is expected to be the last major update for these devices.
