The Chinese variant of OxygenOS called the Hydrogen OS is beings updated to version 10. The H2OS v10 comes to OnePlus 5 with the latest Android security patch level. The update log only states about the device receiving the latest Android security level. It does not state which exactly. So we could assume the new September 2017 security patch level or the August. Moreover, the device jumped from H2OS v7 directly to the H2OS v10. So it’s even harder to predict.
However, this only mean good news for OnePLus 5 as the global variant may soon receive Oxygen OS 4.5.11+. H2OS v10 comes in support for custom ringtones for notifications. Now you can set different tines for different app notifications. It also optimizes app launch speed. Some bug fixes for the latest Launcher and its user interface. The complete update log has been listed below. It is translated from one of the Chinese languages.
Unfortunately, this does not include Android 8.0.0 Oreo update. It is still based on Android 7.1.1 Nougat. As stated by the manufacturer, the flagship will release Oreo update after OnePlus 3 and 3T have been updated. Oreo will be the last Android update OnePlus 3/3T will ever see. So by the end of this year, you may see Oreo for OnePlus 5.
