Well, it looks like the OnePlus 8 and OnePlus 8 Pro have both started receiving the new version of OxygenOS. From the changelog, we can see that this update brings with it a ton of fixes and improvements. The update also comes with the May 2020 security patch and looks to be rolling out to devices across the globe. Just a note though, users may get the OxygenOS 10.5.8 of OxygenOS 10.5.10, but don’t worry as they’re pretty much the same OTA update for different regions.
