OnePlus is rolling out OxygenOS 5.1.7 update, but, it won't be released in India. Instead, OnePlus will directly roll-out OxygenOS 5.1.8 update in the country next week.

Last week, OnePlus rolled out OxygenOS 5.1.6 update for the OnePlus 6 that brought Portrait Mode for the front camera while also adding battery percentage in Status Bar and VoLTE support for Idea Cellular. However, OnePlus has now announced that it has halted the OxygenOS 5.1.6 update in India.

That said, OnePlus has also announced that it is rolling out OxygenOS 5.1.7 update for the OnePlus 6, but, it won’t be released in India. However, the company has said that it will roll-out OxygenOS 5.1.8 update in India next week that will contain fix for the issues reported as well as all the features that are included in OxygenOS 5.1.7 update.

Here’s the entire changelog of OxygenOS 5.1.7 update for OnePlus 6:
