OnePlus recently released a camera update for the OnePlus 9 and the Pro version smartphones. The new software update also comes with the standard security patch that will roll out to other OnePlus phones, as SlashGear reported.
The OnePlus 9 camera update, according to the Chinese phone manufacturer, will enhance "image purity" and "ambiance performance," as well as improve the white balance of the main camera, resulting to better photos.
OxygenOS 188.8.131.52 also comes along with the latest software update, which will bring improvements to the smartphones' charging stability, keyboard sensitivity and temperature management.
The last one means that the phone can intelligently determine when to cool down. This is done by reducing the processing power of the chip inside the OnePlus 9 and the OnePlus 9 Pro.
The software patch also updates the GMS (Google Mobile Services) package of the two phones to the 2021.03 version.
With the new patch, OnePlus software engineers address some "known issues" associated with the OnePlus 9 series.
These include the small possibility in which the Google Fi SIM card would prevent the phone from receiving incoming calls and the abnormal appearance of the battery icon on the status bar.
Users of OnePlus 9 series smartphones must look at phone settings to verify if they have the latest software update.
