OnePlus has started rolling out yet another update for the OnePlus 7 Pro, its latest flagship. OxygenOS 9.5.9 is on its way to the OnePlus 7 Pro units, and the changelog is rather huge this time around, it’s filled with various optimizations and improvements.
As per usual, the company has listed the entire changelog on its official forums, and we’ve received the update already, so a screenshot of the entire changelog is included below this article.
The changelog is separated into two sections this time around, System and Camera. Let’s get the system portion out of the way first, as it’s a notably longer list compared to the Camera section.
OnePlus says that this update will improve touch sensitivity on your OnePlus 7 Pro handset, while it will also bring smoother visual effects. Haptic feedback has been optimized for the keyboard on the OnePlus 7 Pro, not to mention that the sensitivity of automatic brightness has also been tweaked.
The company also optimized auto-switch of display resolution, and optimized the speed and accuracy of GPS when the screen is turned off. Haptic feedback for third-party app notifications has also been adjusted, while Face Unlock assistive lighting has also been added. You can access this feature by going to Settings -> Security & lock screen -> Face Unlock -> Face Unlock assistive lighting.
For those of you who own the OnePlus Bullets Wireless 2 earphones, the company increased sound enhancement. Navigate to Settings -> Sound & vibration -> Dolby Atmos -> Earphone Adjustment -> Earphones Sound Enhancement.
Android security patch for June 2019 is included in this update as well, while the company also added VoLTE/WoWiFi support for 3 SE and Telenor SE, this applies for EEA only, of course. On top of everything we’ve mentioned, general bug fixes and improvements have been listed as well in this section.
Now, as far as camera changes are concerned, there’s some stuff to look forward to as well. The company has improved the performance of camera mode while switching from front to back shooters. Speed of auto focus has been improved as well, and the same can be said for photo-stitching in Panorama mode. The last entry in the “Camera” section states that photo quality of 48-megapixel JPG in Pro mode has also been improved.
This update is already rolling out, but this is a staged rollout, as is usually the case with OnePlus’ software updates. The update will roll out to everyone within a week, but it will first hit a small number of handsets, before reaching everyone else. You can try installing a VPN app and update that way, here’s a full tutorial on how to do that.
This update follows quite a few previous updates that not only brought improvements and optimizations to the table, but also new features to the OnePlus 7 Pro. The phone’s camera, in particular, has seen a ton of improvements since the phone launched, and it is much better now, especially in low light, while some autofocus-related issues have also been fixed.
