Do you feel your OnePlus 5T hot, very hot? You’re not the only one. After inquiring your users and fans in the OnePlus community the brand is finally making a new update available for your Android smartphone. This aims to correct the overheating that would be affecting this your top of the range.
Now, according to the statements made by the brand itself on its Twitter, in response to a consumer who reported the case, the brand claimed to be aware of the situation. Note that the user stated that his OnePlus 5T reached a dangerous 61.6ºC. The user is called Sai Charan and would make his “complaint” through his Twitter account, the profile “@ SaiChar45173261”.
To illustrate your case, Sai also placed a screenshot inside the CPU-Z application. This is a good application for Android. It allows you to check various parameters of your smartphone. It lists all its components and data from its various sensors, the temperature being one of them. However, reaching more than 60ºC OnePlus 5T can suffer structural damage.
Moreover, at this temperature, it is not at all impossible that even the battery could suffer serious damage. With this potential risk it is no wonder that the brand was already investigating the situation. However, for we do not know what causes this abrupt heating, CPU-Z only shows us “the symptoms” and not the causes.
OnePlus 5T will receive a new Android update after OxygenOS 5.0.4
Moreover, OnePlus itself was quite brief in its statements and did not explain what was happening. He said only that they would make available an Android update, from their firmware (system software) to correct this situation. The user who was experiencing this abnormality would claim that his OnePlus 5T was using the new OxygenOS 5.0.4 that was distributed last week.
This update of Android will be a small patch, parallel to correct the causes of abrupt heating. Even so, it remains a mystery that is causing this above-average warming in OnePlus 5T. Moreover, this OnePlus 5T is one of the few smartphones of the brand to suffer with overheating. It has been a long time since such a case has arisen.
In short, there is no information about the cause of this abnormal warming. We do not know if it’s a bug or bug in your Android operating system. If it is an error in your GUI / ROM, OxygenOS or if it is an error in your hardware. We only know that the brand is aware of the situation and will soon issue a new system update.
