OnePlus 7/7 Pro get OxygenOS 10.3.0 with notch hiding and improvements to RAM management and app launch speed
OnePlus runs three different channels for OxygenOS updates: closed beta, open beta, and MP/official stable builds. The OnePlus 7 and OnePlus 7 Pro just received new treats in the Open Beta channel with the rollout of Open Beta 7, which brings over a new, optimized charging feature, and a Chromatic reading mode. Users in the stable branch are also getting some new goodies in the form of OxygenOS 10.3.0, bringing over notch hiding options for the OnePlus 7 (which has a notch), optimizations to RAM management, a bump up in security patch to November 2019, and camera improvements.
Changelog for OxygenOS 10.3.0 for the OnePlus 7 and OnePlus 7 Pro are as follows:
- Added the notch area display option in the Settings (Settings – Display – Notch display – Hide the notch area)
- Improved the launching speed of some apps
- Optimized the RAM management
- Optimized the black and white screen issues with some apps
- Improved system stability and general bug fixes
- Updated Android security patch to 2019.11
- Improved the image quality
Readers might notice that OnePlus has jumped up a bit in its versioning, as the last stable update to the device pair was OxygenOS 10.0.3. The last update to the OnePlus 7T and OnePlus 7T Pro, on the other hand, was OxygenOS 10.0.7 and 10.0.5 respectively, which was then numbered 10.3.0 for users in India. OxygenOS 10.3.0 also began its rollout for the OnePlus 6 and OnePlus 6T. So this jump up in number is not unusual, but irregular nonetheless. Users outside of India might receive the same update under a different number.
