The OnePlus 8T is receiving an update across the globe starting this week to build 126.96.36.199. The update improves several areas (gestures, camera), adds new features (keyboard), fixes several bugs (WiFi), and adds a newer security patch.
Depending where you live with your OnePlus 8T, your build number could change some. OnePlus sends out different builds for India, Europe, and North America, where the difference lies within the last couple of letters of the version. If you are using an updater service to get your 8T updates, make sure you grab the correct version.

Once updated, you should find an “optimized” experience in your full-screen gestures, more success when using the fingerprint reader, a new keyboard height adjustment feature, optimized image quality for nightscape shots, and the November security patch. OnePlus is also fixing a WiFi connection failed bug and improving “stability of communication.”

- Optimized the image quality on nightscape
- Fixed a small probability issue that photos don’t display in the Gallery
- Fixed the issue that the WiFi connection failed in a specific situation

Overall, the update seems substantial for an end-of-year build. To check for it, head into Settings>System>System updates. If you aren’t seeing it right away, that’s because OnePlus slow rolls these out. It could be several days before your phone gets it.
