Finally, stable version of OxygenOS 9.0 for OnePlus 5 and OnePlus 5T has been released with Android 9 Pie. The update is available via OTA.

OxygenOS 9.0.0 will bring several new features and under the hood changes to both OnePlus 5 and OnePlus 5T. Besides Android 9 Pie native features and December 2018 security patch, the update will bring a brand new UI, new navigation gestures, new Gaming mode 3.0, new Do Not Disturb (DND) mode with adjustable settings, Google Lens for camera, etc to both devices.
