If you’ve been waiting impatiently for the OnePlus 9 and OnePlus 9 Pro to hit the virtual store shelves, the wait is over. Both of these devices are officially available for purchase starting today, and to celebrate, OnePlus has pushed a rather large “launch day” software update to both devices. This brings the two new OnePlus devices to software version 11.2.2.LE15AA of OxygenOS, and has a slew of bug fixes and “improvements”.
- Improved the charging stability to provide a better user experience
- Improved WhatsApp’s video clarity when giving video calls
- Improved the vibrating performance of games such as Call of Duty and PUBG
- Fixed the issue that the time of Last Full Charge is reset after restarting the device
- Fixed the issue that the icon showing low battery is not displayed in the status bar
- Fixed the small probability issue that the device may restart when playing games
- Fixed known issues and improved system stability
- Updated Android security patch to 2021.03
- Updated GMS package to 2021.02
- Fixed the issue that the navigation bar of split-screen apps might not be adapted to Dark Mode
- Improved the sharpness, noise and white balance of the rear camera
- Improved the white balance performance of the front camera
- Improved the zoom performance
- Improved the camera stability
This update weighs in at 395 MB, which is a bit hefty, but not unexpected for an update designed to fix so many bugs. If you’ve been paying attention to others who already have their hands on these devices, then you might have noticed an issue going around where Google Pay would not work properly. This was due to the fact that neither the OnePlus 9 nor 9 Pro could pass Google’s SafetyNet, but it would appear as though this update fixes those issues so you can use Google Pay on your new device.
