OnePlus 5T officially updated with iPhone X-like navigation gestures

OnePlus Weibo One Plus 6 teaser The Avengers Infinity War

OnePlus has started rolling out OxygenOS 5.1.0 update for OnePlus 5 and 5T which upgrades both these smartphones to Android 8.1 Oreo. The update includes full-screen gesture support on the 5T as well, similar to those seen on the iPhone X. The update also brings April 2018 security patch fixes, which was also rolled out with the latest OxygenOS Open Beta version. Like in the case of all other updates, the OnePlus has pushed the new update in a phased manner and hence it will take few days for the new software bits to appear on your handset. The company has already teased the gestures for navigation feature of the OnePlus 6 in a promo video. The feature was first spotted in a beta release and it draws inspiration from the iPhone X. The latest one is the OnePlus 5 and OnePlus 5T. But, the timing of smartphone makers like Xiaomi and OnePlus introducing gestures for navigation to their devices can certainly be attributed to the iPhone X. However, gestures work differently for all the three smartphone makers. A middle swipe will open the recently used apps in the multi-task menu. Swiping up from the bottom centre of the screen mimics the home button. Increasingly, Android manufacturers have been incorporating elements like the display notch as they make phones with bigger screen real estate. The feature will likely come out-of-the-box with the OnePlus 6 which is set to come with a display notch and a larger screen-to-body ratio.


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. Your best bet is to keep checking each morning to see if your phone has made the cut.
