On the other hand, the standard OnePlus 7 Pro has started receiving the OxygenOS 9.5.8 update.

OnePlus is pushing the incremental roll-out of OxygenOS 9.5.8 for the OnePlus 7 Pro. Touch sensitivity for the screen has been improved, and once you install the update, Double Tap to Wake and Ambient Display will be optimised and ready to use. OnePlus is one of the companies that have partnered with Google to get early versions of Android running on some of its latest devices. However, the update is not available on all the devices, it will reach everyone in a few days. Yeah, the OnePlus 7, and OnePlus 7 Pro now support Google's ARCore. Apart from general bug fixes and improvements, it also introduces some improvements to the compatibility for third-party Type-C headphones. The Pixel phones recently received the Android Q Beta 4 update that brought along the final APIs, and because the changelog hasn't been detailed by OnePlus for the Android Q Developer Preview 2 update, we can't be sure if this latest update brings the APIs or not.


Along with offering fast and frequent updates, OnePlus is turning into one of the vital communicative Android phone manufacturers: It is really listening to and responding to requests for new options. The update also fixes the issue of pop up camera opening for an incoming video call while the screen is off or locked.

Unlike many other flagship smartphones on the market, the OnePlus 7 Pro does not feature an always-on-display to allow owners to see their notifications at a glance. This is being done so that OnePlus can monitor its communication channels for any complaints or bug reports related to the new update. OnePlus says that users are asking for the same customisation support in the OnePlus 7 Pro and that the company is now working to implement it. The OnePlus 7 Pro features capable camera hardware, but the software tuning wasn't up to the mark by the company which irked a lot of users as the phone is priced close to the Galaxy S10 series. However, we believe that there's more room for improvement in the camera department and the company will surely improve the performance with future updates. The update, listed as 9.5.7GM21AA, improves clarity and noise reduction. Let us know in the comments section below.
