On Tuesday, OnePlus pulled the wraps off its newest OnePlus 7 Pro at simultaneous launch events across the globe. If you were at any of the pop-up launch events, you would have been able to buy a OnePlus 7 Pro on the day of its unveiling – a dream come true for many fans.
The phone is set to officially go on sale on Thursday, May 16 in T-Mobile stores across the US so many who buy the phone this weekend will be greeted with a firmware update out of the box.
It’s not a very heavy update file – it only weighs in at about 125MB. The OTA brings the phone up to Google’s April security patch and adds a new feature to the OnePlus Laboratory screen called “DC dimming”. It can adjust the power current going to the display and reduces flicker at lower brightness.
The update also brought improvements to the camera, added some features to the Gaming (Fnatic) mode and the update also brought support for VoLTE and VoWiFi for Thailand AIS. The changelog also mentions improved smooth-scrolling experience and general bugfixes throughout the UI.
If you are one of the lucky ones already with a OnePlus 7 Pro in your hands, you should have already received an OTA notification to install the update. If you plan on getting a unit this weekend, you’ll be greeted with this update upon setup.
We’ve already conducted our full review of the OnePlus 7 Pro so we’ll have to retest the camera to see if there’s a noticeable improvement in image quality.
