OnePlus 5/5T to get Android P Update with OxygenOS, Note the Date!


OnePlus confirmed Android P for OnePlus 6 releasing on May 16th, but not for OnePlus 5 / 5T phones until later this year.

OnePlus 5 was launched on June 2017 while its predecessor OnePlus 5T was released on November 2017 both phones got their then latest OS, Android Oreo update a top of OxygenOS on Nov & Feb 2018 respectively.

Android P for Oneplus 5 5T downloadOne thing you should know about is, For OnePlus 6 the Android P release would be a pure untouched OS just like how other phones like Mi Mix 2S, Nokia 7 Plus, Oppo, Vivo who joined Android Treble ( developer program ) gets it.

The untouched Android P experience will be a different one, you’ll enjoy the smoothness of the software along with powerful performance of the hardware that comes with OnePlus 6.

But Android P update for OnePlus 5 & 5T  would come out with OnePlus’s own OxygenOS just like how it’s been doing all these days.

When Can i expect Android P release for OnePlus 5 / 5T ?

By going through its past records for pushing latest OS release, I assume OnePlus would take at least 3 months to release Android P release for 5 & 5T phones later this year.

Android P Release Date for OnePlus 5/5T: August 2018

This is my expectations. This may happen sooner or later.

How to Download & Install Android P on your OnePlus 5/5T ?

  • Just like how you would do latest software update available
  • Goto Settings-> About-> Software Update
  • Click ” Accept ” let it run & reboot on its own


Before OS upgrade, always charge your phone up 80%.

Take backup of important data or complete copy of your phone to your PC/portable HD.

Once you install Android P, you can always roll back to previous version anytime you want.

If there’s any other way available to install Android P manually on OnePlus 5, 5T phones, i will update the same on this article.

Are you planning to get OnePlus 6 or would stick with OnePlus 5T or 5 ?
