OxygenOS Update Brings Camera Improvements to the OnePlus 5T

OnePlus has begun the process of rolling out an update to their OxygenOS Android variant to their 2017 flagship phone, the OnePlus 5T.  The updates build of OxygenOS is 4.7.6 and in normal OnePlus fashion, is slowing going out to a select number of users today with a broader deployment happening over the course of the next few days.

The update is still based on Android Nougat 7.1.1 so for those hoping this would bring Oreo to the flagship, you have to still wait a bit.  OxygenOS 5.0 is in beta with an early 2018 release expected.  This 4.7.6 update brings a lot of fixes to the camera, other system improvements as well as the December Android Security Update patch for the device.

Here is the full rundown of improvements and fixes that are in this build:

Camera

  • Stability improvements
  • Clarity improvements for selfie in low light
  • Performance improvements for 3rd party camera apps

System

  • Added assistive lighting for face unlock
  • Improvements for expanded screenshot
  • Improvements for Wi-Fi display
  • Updated Android security patch to December

The update itself is 86MB in size so you can download it via your mobile data plan although WiFi is always recommended.  The update after you download it will take about 5 minutes to install and will require a reboot of your device.
