The OnePlus 7 has been out for a while now and after having experienced it thoroughly, we can say that it is one of the best Android smartphones you can buy this year considering all things – price, specifications or design. Despite the OnePlus 7 Pro being the focus for OnePlus this year, the OnePlus 7 has surprised every smartphone enthusiast with a lower price than before while not compromising on anything. And it’s good to see that OnePlus is taking care of the OnePlus 7 when it comes to software support.
OnePlus 7 software update: OxygenOS 9.5.6
The Indian variant of the OnePlus 7, with model number GM1901, is reportedly getting the OTA update. The OxygenOS 9.5.6 brings general bug fixes and improvements to the smartphone. It also brings security patch for the month of June. The June security patch is being pushed extensively by smartphone makers. Samsung and Huawei have also updated their devices with June security patch.
The new June security patch brings updated Android security patch to 2019.6. Besides that it has optimized sensitivity of automatic brightness and general bug fixes and improvements. The new update brings improved audio quality, along with optimized photo quality for the camera.
Apart from the Security patch, OnePlus has also rolled out a couple of improvements to the camera performance, none of which has been stated. Also, the update fixes some previously reported bugs in the OnePlus 7. The OnePlus 7 isn’t the only OnePlus device to get the updates. The OnePlus 7 Pro also got an update last month that, apart from foxing the bugs, also introduced improvements to camera performance. The OnePlus 7 Pro got the camera firmware that was used by DxOMark to award the phone a total score of 111. With the update, the OnePlus 7 Pro takes noticeably better pictures than before.
While the OnePlus 7 Pro is a great smartphone, the regular OnePlus 7 offers 80 per cent of the Pro’s thrills without asking a premium. The OnePlus 7 gets the same Snapdragon 855 chipset along with the UFS 3.0 storage and the 48-meagpixel Sony IMX586 sensor at the back. It misses out on the 90Hz notch-less display but still offers a big 6.4-inch Optic AMOLED display. Even with its 3700mAh battery, the OnePlus 7 easily delivers an entire day’s backup under a normal usage.
