OxygenOS v4.5.7 for the OnePlus 5 Adds EIS for 4K Video, July Security Patches and More
The latest flagship smartphone from OnePlus has received a handful of software updates since it has been released. The latest and most vital update fixed the 911 emergency calling issue that some people were experiencing and now the company is rolling out a new one. While this new OTA update for the OnePlus 5 does include some bug fixes and stability improvements, it also adds a couple of new features and makes the device more secure.
When reviews of the OnePlus 5 were published, a lot of attention was put on the camera of the device. Mainly because OnePlus themselves hyped up how much they were working on improving its performance. There are definitely some improvements over the OnePlus 3/3T and its other smartphones on the market, it just didn’t live up to the hype for some people in the community. One big criticism was how its EIS feature didn’t work when recording 4K videos.
With OxygenOS version 4.5.7 for the OnePlus 5, EIS should now work when recording 4K videos. We’ll have to wait until the OTA update hits our devices so we can try it out, but this is something that many people have been waiting for. This new OTA update also introduces the new OnePlus Slate font as well. Not only that, but it the OTA update includes Android’s July security patches, and also updates your device to the latest GMS package.
Then we get to optimizations and bug fixes and are told standby battery life should be improved and WiFi connectivity should be as well. A bug was fixed that caused occasional sound leaks in the speakers when using earphones and another that fixed missing sound channels when recording videos. Lastly, OxygenOS version 4.5.7 for the OnePlus 5 also fixed a camera shutter sound bug in silent mode for Indian region. You can find the full changelog down below.
