OnePlus 5T Oxygen OS 4.7.2 Update Brings Facial Recognition and Improved Camera
OnePlus’s latest flagship, the OnePlus 5T, has just beat the Apple iPhone X in terms of speed, which points to the fact that the OnePlus 5T might be the fastest smartphone on the planet. On top of it, OnePlus has already started rolling out a software update. The device has received OxygenOS 4.7.2 as its first major software update.
This new over-the-air (OTA) update is about 48 MB and is based on Android Nougat, not Android Oreo. This new update optimizes fingerprint unlocking, face unlock features, and other performance enhancements. This upgrade will also improve the accuracy of off-screen gestures to enhance the experience.
No OIS (optical image stabilization) exists on the OnePlus5 and the OnePlus 5T. So, the company has added an improved EIS (electronic image stabilization) while recording 4K video. The update also contains a security patch for the infamous Wi-Fi WPA2 KRACK vulnerability. OnePlus released the security patch for the OnePlus 5 earlier this month. Additionally, the latest OxygenOS 4.7.2 update improves the stability and fixes minor bugs.
The Oxygen OS 4.7.2 is the first major update for the OnePlus 5T since its launch on November 16. Also, according to OnePlus co-founder Carl Pei, the company is working on updates for the OnePlus 5T camera. He also revealed the OnePlus 5T was their fastest-selling product to date. The device has one of the best cameras, which can even compete with the Google Pixel 2. The company will be looking to improve low-light photography, selfies, and color production. The final update will likely be released in early December.
As for the latest OxygenOS 4.7.2 update, the device has been rolled out publicly; however, it may take some depending on your country. You can check the availability by going to Settings > System updates. Users are advised to back up their data before updating.
The OnePlus 5T costs Rs 32,999 for the 6 GB RAM + 64 GB storage version and Rs 37,000 for the 8GB RAM + 128 GB storage variant. Both will go on open sale on Amazon from November 28. There are a few launch offers, like a Rs 1,500 instant discount on transactions using HDFC credit and debit cards. The idea is to offer 1008 GB of data for 18 months, and users can also sign in to the Kindle app to get Rs 500 promotion credit for Kindle eBooks. Another offer gives a one-year complimentary Zomato Gold Membership, Rs 250 as Amazon Pay balance to users who stream the Prime video app, and free 12-month Damage Insurance by Servify.
