OxygenOS 4.7.4 Released for The OnePlus 5T

OnePlus has begun rolling out a new OxygenOS build for their new flagship, the OnePlus 5T.  The update is build 4.7.4 for those keeping score at home and brings several improvements to the device.  It is an update that 5T owners will want to get as soon as possible.

The headliner in the update is the optimization of the camera app’s UI and the overall improvement of photo quality.  The improvement in quality is especially in low-light situations.  Most owners of the 5T have been generally pleased with the camera and photo quality from the phone but there have been a few complaints around low light situations.  This update should address those concerns.

In their release notes for this update to OxygenOS, OnePlus outlined several other areas that were optimized in their Android build.  These include:

  • Optimizations for audio from speaker and earphones
  • Optimizations for face unlock
  • Optimizations for vibration
  • Wi-Fi battery usage optimization
  • Improved stability of fingerprint and GPS
  • General bug fixes and system stability improvements

Overall, this is a significant update for 5T owners.

OnePlus tends to slow roll their OxygenOS updates out and this one is no different.  A small subset of 5T owners started getting the update yesterday and a broader roll out will be happening over the course of the next few days.  It could be up to a week before everyone sees it but, if you are a long time OnePlus user, you know how this game is played.  Patience, it is your friend.
