OnePlus is rolling out a new software update to the users of OnePlus 5 users across the globe. The OxygenOS 4.5.15 version is being rolled out by the company with some bug fixes and latest October 2017 security patch fixes. And it’s an incremental OTA update, which is now available only for some users. OnePlus is going to start the broader roll out in a few days.
You can now install any of the VPN application and change the location to Germany to receive the update right away. Currently, the update is not hitting the Indian OnePlus 5 units, so you can follow the VPN method to install the update.

Coming to the OxygenOS 4.5.15 update, it improves the GPS performance on the OnePlus 5. OnePlus also has updated the Android security patch to October 2017, which is still not a great thing since Google already has released December 2017 security patches. OnePlus is not known for rolling out the monthly security patch updates though.
That being said, the current update doesn’t bring any new features to the present OnePlus 5, which is why OnePlus is calling it as an incremental update. Here is the complete changelog of the new OS for the OnePlus 5.
- GPS improvements
- Fixed Issue of not able to set customized alarm ringtone
- Fixed issue of sharing emoji from Bitmoji
- Updated Android security patch for October
- General Bug Fixes
OnePlus is known to roll out the software updates for its smartphones consistently. But, the company is yet to roll out the Android 8.0 Oreo update to the OnePlus 5 and 5T. OnePlus has already received Android 8.0 Oreo update in the form of OxygenOS Open Beta and the 5T may receive the same update as well in the next few days.
In other news, OnePlus is preparing for the launch of the OnePlus 5T Star Wars Edition Launch, which is scheduled for tomorrow. The company has stated a few hours ago that it is offering free 10,000 tickets for Star Wars: The Last Jedi for the existing OnePlus smartphone users. The launch event of the special edition OnePlus 5T is happening in Mumbai tomorrow.
