OxygenOS 9.0.6 update for OnePlus 5/5T brings May security Patch, Bluetooth fixes (Download links inside)
Although both OnePlus 3 and 3T got Android 9.0 Pie update in the form of OxygenOS 9.0.2 a few weeks ago, they are now considered as legacy products. OxygenOS is preparing the groundwork towards Android Q, and the 9.5 branch is the transitioning phase with a number of new features.
While OnePlus 3/3T won’t get these features, the Chinese OEM officially confirmed to bring them on OnePlus 5/5T and Oneplus 6/6T. As a matter of fact, 2018’s OnePlus 6/6T duo already got Zen Mode and Screen Recorder via Open Beta channel.
It’s a known fact that the stable channel is significantly lagged behind the Open Beta channel in terms of features and fixes. Both OnePlus 5 and 5T received their last stable update back in April, which also brought April 2019 security patches.
Their successor, the OnePlus 6/6T, recently got May security patch via stable channel OTA update. Following the footsteps, OnePlus has started to roll out OxygenOS 9.0.6 for OnePlus 5/5T with an updated security patch.
The size of the incremental OTA package is less than 200 MB, but OnePlus managed to deliver a couple of Bluetooth connectivity fixes with this update. Both OnePlus 5 & 5T should now be able to quick pair with the second gen Bullets Wireless, just like the OnePlus 6/6T.
Interestingly, the changelog does not mention anything about the infamous Speed Dial contacts auto-deletion bug. The company even acknowledged the anomaly and promised to fix it (in fact they did it with OnePlus 6/6T).
It could be possible that the copywriters simply forgot to mention the fix in the changelog, as we had a similar experience in past. The current build was compiled on May 27, which is rather old compared to the release date.
Only a handful of OnePlus 5 users have reportedly got the incremental update,
thus we are unable to capture the full update ZIPs but we have captured them anyway. OnePlus’ Manu J. is silent as well – guess he will make the update announcement thread public after a wider rollout.
