OnePlus has started rolling out a new update to the OnePlus 9 and 9 Pro, which brings further camera improvements. This update is marked as OxygenOS 22.214.171.124 for both smartphones, and it comes to Indian, North American, and European variants of the phone.
The update is rolling out as we speak, though it may take a couple of days to arrive to your phone. As per usual, this update is rolling out in stages, and it will arrive to your phone OTA (Over The Air).
The main focus of this OnePlus 9 series update are the camera performance improvements
The changelog OnePlus shared is separated into three categories, System, Camera, and Network. The ‘Camera’ section has the most entries, as the company is trying to further optimize the camera experience on the devices.
In regards to the camera performance, OnePlus improved the hidden operation logic of the camera’s top bar. On top of that, the noise reduction and sharpening effect of the rear camera has been optimized.
OnePlus also improved the focusing experience and brightness constancy in indoor scenes. The last camera entry claims that the accuracy of the auto white balance of the rear camera has been improved.
Now, when it comes to other changes, the company improved the charging experience. The power consumption has been optimized, while some known issues have been fixed, and the stability has been improved.
The network performance has been improved as well
The very last entry in the changelog says that the network performance has been improved. OnePlus did not share any details regarding that, though.
The main reason why OnePlus has been pushing out that many updates for the two devices is the camera performance. OnePlus overhyped the camera performance of the two phones, so the initial build left much to be desired.
The camera performance did improve thanks to these updates, but more can be done. We’ll see what this update does for the two phones.
