Written by Deepak

The new system update for OnePlus5 and OnePlus5T is here. And it comes loaded with new features, security patch and fix for some known bugs.

The update weights around 480mb for most of users. Though some have reported it to be of around 1.7Gb as well.


As per the update logs, below are the changes:

  • System
    • Updated Android security patch to 2019.6
    • Added Screen recorder feature (Quick Settings — Edit — Screen Recorder)
    • Added Quick reply in landscape (Settings — Utilities — Quick reply in landscape)
    • General bug fixes and system improvements
  • Gaming mode
    • Added Fnatic mode (Settings — Utilities — Gaming mode)
  • Phone
    • Fixed issue with Speed Dial

So, as per these, there is a new option in Quick Tiles, to enable Screen Recording, a new option in Gaming Mode (Fnatic mode powered by EA Sports) and Quick Reply options when you are using your phone in landscape mode, it shows your app and keyboard in Floating view, allow you to instantly reply without leaving current screen.

Prior to this, replying in Landscape was a hectic job as 80% of screen was consumed by the Keyboard app itself and rest was occupied by Status Bar and other options. You can see the new feature in action below.

If you haven’t received any notification regarding this update, please hold yourself, it would be gradually coming to you. Or you can also navigate to Settings Panel of your phone and check for system updates if any.
