The latest update for the OnePlus 9 series adds an HDR toggle for video recording

It wasn’t too long ago that OnePlus rolled out a software update to the OnePlus 9 series. The last OxygenOS update for the OnePlus 9 / Pro reduced power draw, improved the charging experience, and optimized the camera performance, among other things. But it seems some bugs might have been left unfixed, so the company is rolling out another update to its 2021 flagships.

The latest OxygenOS update has started hitting the OnePlus 9 and OnePlus 9 Pro units in India. It’s a minor update that reduces power consumption in specific scenarios, fixes bugs, and improves video shooting and recording. Interestingly, the update also adds a new HDR toggle for video recording on the OnePlus 9 Pro, but as Android Police points out, DOL-HDR is enabled by default thus this toggle simply adds a way to turn it off on the 9 Pro.


OxygenOS update changelog:

  • System
    • Reduced power consumption in specific scenarios
    • Fixed known issues and improved stability
  • Camera
    • Newly added HDR option in video recording interface (Path: Menu options in the upper right corner of the screen-Dynamic video) – OnePlus 9 Pro only
    • Improved the shooting and recording experience
