OnePlus has beat Google this time, by including the August Security Patch for the OnePlus 7 Pro, before the Pixel devices got it. OxygenOS 9.5.11 update brings the latest Android Security fixes to the flagship phone.
There’s more that the new firmware adds. According to the OxygenOS 9.5.11 update release notes, the OTA brings improved Adaptive Brightness. It also brings some optimizations for the touch screen sensitivity during gaming.
If you had accidental touches in the OnePlus 7 Pro notification bar while calling, you’ll be happy to know that the company has fixed the problem in the latest update.
OnePlus has updated GMS (Google Mobile Services) to 2019.06. A screenshot (courtesy: akks at OnePlus forums) tells us that the update weighs about 306MB to download.
Several users have reported that the update is available for them already, so it seems like a global roll out. Early reviews indicate that the update doesn’t introduce any new issues, and that the phone runs smoother than before.
The Android Q beta for OnePlus 7 Pro is available as part of Project Treble, and judging by the way the updates have been handled, we can expect a speedy upgrade from OnePlus, when Google announces the new OS this year.
For a company which once refused to update a previous flagship (OnePlus 2 was never updated from Android Marshmallow to Android Nougat), things sure have come a long way, a positive way. Kudos OnePlus.
