OnePlus is now rolling out OxygenOS version 4.5.5 to the OnePlus 5. The new software, announced in the OnePlus forums, delivers several bug fixes — including solving a problem with the Wi-Fi icon always showing a weak signal — and some decent feature improvements.
OnePlus has reduced the amount of battery consumed when recording videos, provided clearer voice calling, and enhanced the Wi-Fi connectivity (though to what extent isn’t clear). Meanwhile, OnePlus has also reduced the vibration intensity when receiving calls, so it’s now a little gentler.
The OTA update comes in at 59 MB and will reach a small percentage of users today, with the rest in the coming days. Head to your Settings > System updates page to check if it’s currently available on your handset.

OnePlus 5 Android Nougat update
The OnePlus 5 arrived on June 27, 2017 running Android 7.1.1 Nougat out of the box. This is the latest version of Android currently available, so any updates coming before Android 8.0 (the upcoming Android software Google is currently working on) are likely to be relatively small.
The OnePlus 5 received its first update just ahead of its online availability on June 26 to OxygenOS version 4.5.2. This delivered various stability optimizations and bug fixes before its official release. Later, some key members of the OnePlus team took part in a Reddit “Ask Me Anything” thread where they confirmed that the OnePlus 3 and 3T would get Android O (Android 8.0) before the and of the year. This news also indicates that the OnePlus 5 — OnePlus’ latest flagship — will receive Android 8.0 before the end of 2017.
