OnePlus 7 Pro receives exclusive update that improves camera, fixes other bugs

The OnePlus 7 Pro was launched earlier this month.

ONEPLUS 7 PRO CAMERA IMPROVEMENTS: OnePlus 7 Pro has started receiving OxygenOS’ newest update that fixes some camera issues and ambient display problem. The OxygenOS 9.5.4 is exclusive to OnePlus 7 Pro, meaning other OnePlus devices would not receive this update. The update is being rolled out in stages so it might not be available on every OnePlus 7 Pro device at the moment. You may expect it in the coming weeks.

OnePlus launched the OnePlus 7 Pro earlier this month. The smartphone was praised for the features it brings at a reasonable price tag, but some users complained about its camera quality. The company promised an update in about a week’s time to fix the issues.

According to the official changelog, the v9.5.4 update fixes issues like unnatural smoothness in beauty effect, lack of details, smudgy areas in telephoto images and more. The update also fixes white balance issue in pictures as well as focus issue in several scenarios.

Apart from this, the update also improves system optimization. That includes a fix for the ambient display, double tap to wake the screen, audio delay with the Bluetooth headset during gameplay and other general bug fixes.

The OnePlus 7 Pro is currently available in two variants – 6GB/128GB priced at 48,999, 8GB/256GB priced at 52,999 in Mirror Grey colour. The OnePlus 7 Pro will be available in an all-new Nebula Blue colour in 8GB/256GB priced at 52,999 and 12GB/256GB at 57,999 from May 28, 2019 on Amazon.in.

It features a 6.67-inch Fluid AMOLED display panel with a QHD+ resolution and refresh rate of 90Hz. The display is notch-less and has curved edges, much like the Samsung Galaxy S10 and Huawei P30 Pro. It is powered by Qualcomm’s new Snapdragon 855 SoC paired with three RAM and storage configurations that max out at 12GB/256GB. It comes with a “RAM Boost” mode that allows app to load from RAM memory instead of ROM, hence reducing app load times. It is also the first smartphone to ship with UFS 3.0 memory which offers speeds up to 79% faster than the previous UFS 2.1 standard.

At the back it sports a 48MP+16MP+8MP combination. The 16MP and 18MP sensors have wide angle and telephoto lenses respectively. The front facing pop-up mechanism houses a 16MP camera. The phone is backed by a 4,000mAh battery.
