OnePlus 8 & 8 Pro OxygenOS update (10.5.4/10.5.3 & 10.5.5) enables VoWiFi (WiFi calling), improves camera & more

OnePlus 8 and OnePlus 8 Pro might only be a couple or so weeks old, but the duo is already receiving a new software update with plenty of optimizations and some new features as well.

The standard OnePlus 8 is receiving the update depending on the model number in question. Folks using the Indian model are receiving the new OTA as OxygenOS 10.5.4.IN21DA while those in the EU region should get it as OxygenOS 10.5.3.IN21BA.

For those using the North American variant, the update should arrive your way as OxygenOS 10.5.4.IN21AA​. Matter of fact, we already reported about the latter update in North America, including the Pro variant.

As always with OTA updates, only a small percentage of OnePlus 8 and 8 Pro handsets will get the update today. The rest will get it in the coming days as part of the broader rollout, so stay patient.

OnePlus 8 Pro units are experiencing a green tint issue and while the company has promised to fix the bug via a software update, it doesn’t look like the incoming OTA is the one to address the issue. It’s also unlikely that this update enables dual-SIM (5G/5G) support as promised.
