OnePlus 8 series gets January security patch and bug fixes with latest OxygenOS updates

06 February 2021
The updates are rolling out to a limited number of users right now.

Sort by:

Just got a "new" 8 Pro with wireless earbuds for a very fair price for the features and expected remaining lifespan. Because they hid a second discount so well on their store page and because their customer support could not apply the still-active discount to my purchase, I had to re-order and return the first phone unopened. Idiotic, customer-hostile marketing and policy. I'll be watching OnePlus closely in the next couple of years. My 6T is going to my wife (who is considerably harder on phones - good luck, little 6T). Will it ever get the Android 11 update? Will "monthly" patching continue to deteriorate? Companies have ups and downs, and I'm hoping OnePlus is just having a temporary down with their support. Overall I've been very pleased with my 6T, but as a cyber security professional, I know the value of security patches and not falling too far behind on the latest major versions. If there is not an upswing with timely and long-term support, much of the overall value of OnePlus phones will be lost and I may have to transition to Samsung or Apple (great hardware, great long-term software updates, good software, so-so overall value, horrible company).

Olym1mk2, 08 Feb 2021You obviously care, since you commented like that xD Are you tr^lling?? Why are you then making a big deal about security patches? Why are you making a big deal out of OnePlus getting January security patch now instead of February even though we just started in February?

It doesn't make someone's phone more secure as companies try to market it.

Who gives a **** about ip rating and wireless charging? That is not what an enthusiast company should care about.

OnePlus started becoming Oppo when they downgraded the OnePlus 7 to upsell the 7 Pro. The worsening software support is the next sign. OnePlus broke their brand promises (all phones get 3 OS updated, all phones will be 90Hz or above) so don't be loyal to a brand that isn't loyal to you anymore.

Chinese phones..enough said.
Is like Dacia, everybody is praising it and everybody is buying it, but deep down inside everybody knows is a sh*t car, good only because is cheap. Same with Chinese phones.
And yes, I had Chinese phones from Xiaomi, Realme and One Plus. No more Chinese phones for me that’s for sure. Ever.
Good luck with your garb*ge devices. You will need it. Lol.

While others are on February patch. Oneplus lost the touch, because of you kids who whine about ip rating, camera, wireless charging and instinct jack.! Price is like Samsung and apple, Thx to you. They can't focus on the performance and stability, because you want all the newest useless features. Thx.

3 months later they give a security update with no real big fixes. How low has Oneplus fallen. Pretty sad.
