Yesterday we’ve told you about a new problem that the OnePlus 5 owners have discovered. Many OnePlus 5 users have claimed that their devices are rebooting while trying to call 911 in the US. At the same time, the EU citizens mentioned that they have the same issue with the device while trying to make 112 calls.
OnePlus knows that this is a big issue and this is the reason why it reacted so fast. If yesterday the company has mentioned that it is looking in a way to fix the problem, today it confirmed that it has a new update for the device, which will be released soon.
We also remind you that the OnePlus One had similar problems after it was launched, but it seems that currently the device is not affected by this problem. The company mentioned that soon enough the OTA update OxygenOS 4.5.6 will reach all the OnePlus 5 devices.
Keep in mind that since this is an OTA update, some users might receive it faster while others might need to wait a few more days until it reaches their devices. The new update will just come with this hotfix, meaning that it will not contain any new features or options.
OnePlus claimed that the OTA update will have a size of only 32MB and most of you will probably want to download it even if your device will be connected to mobile data at that time. However, if you don’t want to waste 32MB for the update, you can just wait until your device is connected to a Wi-Fi router.
After applying the update, your device will reboot and you will be able to make 911/112 calls (if you have an emergency).
