According to the Post on their Official Forums, the OxygenOS 5.0.4 for OnePlus 3/3T would come with the July Security Patch. A staff member quoted that the “5.0.4 has July 2018 security patch, the setting incorrectly reflects security patch as June due to an incorrect string (typo).“. This means that while the system update may show June Security Update, but in reality, it is the July Security update. This was a typo by the company as they missed out on updating a string in settings under security patch.
