OnePlus releases OxygenOS Update for OnePlus 8 and 8 Pro

Two months ago, OnePlus issued a stable update to the OnePlus 8 series, in the form of OxygenOS with a series of fixes and enhancements. Now the company has released the incremental update, dubbed as OxygenOS to the OnePlus 8 and OnePlus 8 Pro. The newer patch is seeding with updated monthly security patch, fixes, and improvements. Here you can check everything about OnePlus 8 and OnePlus 8 Pro OxygenOS update.

OnePlus plants the latest update on OnePlus 8 Pro with OxygenOS software version and measures around 360MB for downloading. As it is an incremental update, it will reach your smartphone over-the-air.

As I said earlier, the update brings a bunch of changes to your smartphone. Recently, the company released OxygenOS 11 Open Beta 10 on the OnePlus 8 lineup with BitMoji support for AOD and users are expecting that the company will release this feature with upcoming stable update. But that’s not the case, yes, the OxygenOS comes with a big list of bugs fixes and enhancements, but there’s no info about the BitMoji.

Talking about the fixes, then the OnePlus addresses bugs such as screenshot capture failure from accessibility menu, low battery notification issue, abnormal Gallery display UI in Guest Mode, calling page display issue during a call, along with some other minor issues. The update also knocks up with enhancements like stability in Wireless Charging, improved smoothness while sliding on home screen, along with network improvements. Apart from that, the update will bump up the monthly security patch to May 2021.
