    I would wait for official ota or beta release of oxygen os, rather then installing hydrogen os.. actual I have messed up my battery life in OnePlus 2, and I don't want to repeat this again in oneplus5t..

    You could install OxygenOS updater from playstore and get the update right away ...
    You could also go the VPN route to update your device .....
    Another option is following the steps here >> check the 2nd post
    Else waiting is always an option ...

    Would suggest to wipe cache from recovery before going for any of the methods above ... :)

    A few important points I've noted in Oreo Update for OnePlus5. Below is a snap of what OP5 got in Android 8.0

    changelog of the Android O build for OP5
    Updated to Android O (8.0)
    Optimizations for Shelf
    Now you can upload your photo through Shot on OnePlus

    New Camera UI design**
    Optimizations for photo quality**
    Added beauty effect for Portrait Mode**

    Added “Places” tab for viewing photos on a map**

    Added history feature**

    Added alarm calendar feature

    Added Parallel Apps feature**
    New design for Quick Settings
    New design for Lift up display
    Added “Adaptive model" screen calibration**
    Optimizations for Wi-Fi**
    Optimizations for Battery Saver
    Updated Android security patch to December**

    Most of the features which I've marked (**) above are already there in OnePlus5T.

    In my opinion I'll ask for a stable update but it doesn't mean I'll be happy with it. Of course who doesn't like to have a latest version of an OS, but let's try and see the big picture here. I'm not sure but it seems Oreo will only bring a few optimizations but nothing huge. Our OP5T is already rocking and it's no less than other flagships without putting a heavy load on our pockets.

    Please share your thoughts in either case whether you agree or disagree with me!

    I do agree with you. first of all I need a reliable smartphone, with improved performance (I've those OP because of that) and then the latest Android. don't mind at all of waiting a feel months to get a good update.
    probably I'm still traumatized with the iOS 11.

    Think it's a safe bet we'll see it in 2018. If not, feel free to ask again in 2019 (and please tell all your friends the same).
