It look like the Chinese smartphone company is working hard to come up with improvements not only for their OnePlus 6, about to be released very soon, but also for phones that are already out on the market, namely the OnePlus 5 and OnePlus 5T.

Ahead of the teasers on the upcoming new OnePlus 6, the company has released the latest Android 8.1 Oreo-based updates to the last year's flagship models.

When each and every smartphone company is competing with the iPhone X, OnePlus has got an incredible additional feature to OnePlus 5T that is the full-screen navigation gestures support which is quite similar to the working of iPhone X. However, you can go into the "System Updates" section in the phone's settings to check if your phone is ready to download the update.

The film will be the fourth collaboration of Khan and Chopra, who last shared screen space in the 2008 film God Tussi Great Ho . Ali told the leading tabloid: " Bharat is a mature, subtle love story and her character is the soul of the film".

For those on the OnePlus stable track, the update will roll out incrementally over the coming days, so don't be surprised if you don't see it right away.

Starting today, the Android Oreo 8.1 update will be rolling out to OnePlus 5 and 5T owners. Additionally, the phone also gets a security patch update to April 2018. Sadly, OnePlus 5 users will not get the same navigation key update since this phone is based on off-screen navigation keys that appear just below the screen of the phone. OnePlus' bug report forum can be used to submit feedback and report bugs in the latest update. Of all the changes listed by OnePlus, only one is exclusive to the OnePlus 5T. The new update also allows users to prioritise network (like data/WiFi) for the game that is being played.

The new update has got several changes in the gaming optimizations which include the power saving and pausing the adaptive brightness system of the smartphones while playing the game, the network boost feature, and the app drawer search engine has category tags now.
