Highlights

    • The new update brings stability improvements and bug fixes
    • It also adds a new font called “Slate”
    • The update will be rolled out in phases

OnePlus 5 since its release has faced a number of issues right from connectivity to imaging. While the Chinese OEM rolled out a handful of software updates to address these issues, but some still persists. OnePlus has now released a new software update, OxygenOS version 4.5.7 that brings stability improvements, bug fixes and Android security patch for the month of July. The update also includes enhanced security, some additional features to improve overall user experience.

While many OnePlus 5 users earlier complained about the missing EIS (electronic image stabilisation) for recording 4K videos, the latest software update has added EIS for recording 4K content. The new update also adds a new font called “Slate” that doesn’t replace the default font, but it will be available as an option under Settings> Font. The OxygenOS 4.5.7 additionally comes with latest GMS (Google Mobile Services), and optimization for Wi-Fi connectivity and standby battery life. Other bug fixes include- camera shutter sound bug in silent mode specifically for Indian region, occasional sound leaks in the speakers while using earphones.

As per usual, the new OxygenOS build is rolling out in phases. The company has already started rolling out the new software update via OTA (over-the-air), but as we said it will take a while to reach all OnePlus 5 users.

The complete changelog as noted in OnePlus forum is mentioned below-

New additions:

  • Introducing the all new OnePlus Slate font
  • Added EIS for 4K video recording

Updates:

  •  Updated Android security patch level to 1st July 2017

Bug Fixes:

Although OnePlus has finally addressed the issue of missing EIS for 4K video recording with the new update, the lack of RAW output from the secondary lens is still a major issue the company needs to acknowledge and address.
