vivo NEX S goes on sale again tomorrow

vivo's almost-bezelless NEX S took the world by storm in the past few weeks, and it's been almost impossible to find it in stock in China (it's only available there for now).

Shortly after the Oxygen v5.1.8 update for the OnePlus 6, the company proves that it has not forgotten about its older devices, the OnePlus 5 and 5T, by pushing out the OTA update for Oxygen OS v.5.1.3. It's a minor update bringing mostly some under the hood optimizations and a fixed a security issue with the bootloader.

It seems that a small number of users were having stability issues with the...
