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.
