Chinese smartphone maker OnePlus has started rolling out Android 9 Pie update for OnePlus 5 and 5T smartphones, weeks after releasing two beta builds of the Operating System (OS) for the two models.

The final version of the update arrives as OxygenOS 9.0.0, based on Android Pie OS and features the December security patches too.

“We are very excited to announce that the pie has been baked! And ready to be rolled out for OnePlus 5 and 5T. This is our first official Android 9 Pie OTA update for the OnePlus 5 and 5T,” the company wrote in a blog post on Wednesday.

The Over the Air (OTA) upgrade would also include a brand new user interface (UI) for Android Pie, new navigation gestures (for OnePlus 5T only) and updated Android security patch to December.

The upgrade also brings the integrated Google Lens mode into the camera.

Chinese handset maker OnePlus has reportedly confirmed that the company is working to manufacture a second 5G phone before the end of 2019 which could purportedly be the OnePlus 7T.

This time being 5G capable globally, the device should pick up the mantle from its predecessor OnePlus 7 Pro, the XDA Developers reported quoting the Financial Times on Wednesday.

However, unlike the OnePlus 7 Pro 5G that is only available from a selected few carriers across the world, the new handset would get a global release.
