The latest OxygenOS 188.8.131.52 and 184.108.40.206 updates are now on their way to the OnePlus 8 and 8T series with a number of important usability adjustments and the January 2021 security update.
While Samsung has really upgraded the update game, let’s be honest, OnePlus is starting to drop the ball a bit. These latest stable updates are welcome, but the OxygenOS 220.127.116.11 and 18.104.22.168 updates should really be included in the February 2021 update and not the January update. The company relies too heavily on the Open Beta track too late, and we hope it eventually changes. However, there are some notable fixes for those running stable versions of Android 1
Optimizations come with OxygenOS 22.214.171.124 and 126.96.36.199 to improve the scrolling screen and the notification bar user interface. While there are split screen mode fixes, the Twitter app freezes, color bug fixes, video playback fixes in the OnePlus Gallery app, plus noise reduction when calling over 5G connectivity. Both updates were confirmed in a series of posts on the official OnePlus forums (1.2), with the full change logs below:
- Optimized the experience of using long screenshots
- Optimized the UI display effect of the notification bar
- Improve the root problem of some tripartite applications
- Solved the small probability problem that Twitter can freeze
- Resolved the issue that opening the app split screen may fail
- Solved the problem of not changing accent color with little probability
- Fixed the inaccurate display of the assignment of some numbers
- Solved known issues and improved system stability
- Updated Android security update to 2021.01
- Solved the problem that the video can not be played with little probability
- Solved the noise problem with 5G calls
It is worth noting that there are separate building numbers and a unique OxygenOS patch for specific regions. Those with OnePlus 8T in Europe will see the OxygenOS 188.8.131.52 update arrive as 184.108.40.206. While the OnePlus 8 and 8 Pro updates are all marked as OxygenOS 220.127.116.11. This is especially important if you are trying to sideload a patch on your device using Oxygen Updater. Make sure you choose the right building for your area-specific hardware if you want a hassle-free experience.
The patch varies in size for both devices, but weighs on average around the 280-300MB range. You should be able to download it already from the above Oxygen Updater, but both updates will roll out incrementally over the next few days.
