OnePlus has officially started pushing out the OxygenOS 4.0.3 update. The company, known for its quick updates and taking a lot of feedback from its users, has started rolling out this latest software updates over-the-air (OTA) in phases. At the time of publishing this article, the update had not reached our test devices. This is quite expected as it is an incremental update.
The new update brings with itself a host of features, and the list includes updated WiFi standards, Camera app goodies and audio recording quality tweaks among others.
The OxygenOS 4.0.3 update from OnePlus features a Smart Wi-Fi Switcher. This feature makes the device switch from Wi-Fi to Data if the Wi-Fi signal has been consistently weak. This kind of switching ability has been present in iOS, where the data connection assists the Wi-Fi signal if the latter shows weak strength.
The update also optimizes the Sony IMX298 sensors on both the OnePlus 3 and OnePlus 3T. The update essentially optimizes the exposure settings for taking better photos under low-lit conditions, especially at night. This should work well as the OnePlus 3 and 3T both come with Optical Image Stabilisation (OIS) and help user take better night-time photos.
Included in the update package is the addition of APN settings for some carriers, a crash fix for Line messaging app, and Wi-Fi IPv6 support toggle. IPv6 is an upgrade over IPv4, the current Internet Protocol system. Users will now be able to record better quality of audio from their devices, thanks to this update.
The partnership with Amazon to sell phones exclusively also reflects in this update, as with this update Amazon Prime App will come pre-installed for Indian users. Apart from this, there are a few security fixes too.
