OnePlus has finally released OnePlus 5T Android Pie upgrade for users in China. The upgrade is based on HydrogenOS, OnePlus' custom skin for the Chinese market. The much-awaited update has arrived just a little over two months since the public beta leaked last year.
To be specific, it is HydrogenOS 9.0.1 update which brings Android 9 Pie to OnePlus 5T Chinese users. It also brings a newer Android security level which is dated December 2018. Other noteworthy changes include improved Do Not Disturb mode and the release of Game Mode 3.0. The latter is a mode meant for enhancing the flagship's gaming performance.
In terms of the complete changelog, it seems more or less the same one as the OnePlus 5T OxygenOS Android Pie release. It means the users will also get new navigation gestures, added notifications for third-party calls, and integrated Google Lens for faster scanning of images.
This is an OTA update which means it should arrive anytime on your OnePlus 5T. One can also check for the update manually by visiting the phone's system settings.
