It seems like the very first firmware update will be ready the moment you power on your brand new OnePlus 7 Pro. This update weighs 125MB, and its changelog is quite a long one, actually. The update comes with OxygenOS 9.5.3.GM21AA build, based on the provided screenshots that the source shared.

First and foremost, it's worth noting that the update brings the Android security patch for April to the device, which are great news. On top of that, your regular general bug fixes and improvements are mentioned in the changelog, along with the DC dimming feature.

DC dimming will be available once you install this update, but it is available via the OnePlus Laboratory menu, which suggests it's still experimental. For those of you who do not know, DC dimming adjusts the power current going through the display, and reduces flicker at lower brightness.

This update also improves the smooth-scrolling experience on the device, while it brings enhancements to audiovisual experience by adding haptic feedback. You can find more info regarding this in the Gaming mode section of the phone's settings.

Fnatic mode that the company talked about during the OnePlus 7 Pro's announcement is also being added via this update, you can spot it in the Gaming mode section of the phone's settings as well, simply navigate to "Utilities" and "Gaming mode". Fnatic mode will probably prove to be more than useful for those of you who intend to use the OnePlus 7 Pro for gaming.

Now, this update is also said to improve the photo quality the phone's camera setup can provide. Such improvements are always welcomed, though it remains to be seen how much will the update improve things. Not that the phone's camera is bad out of the box, but OnePlus does need to improve some thingsā€¦ well, tweak is the better word for it.
