OnePlus 7 Pro Gets Another Update OxygenOS 9.5.9

We have almost lost track of updates given their sheer volume in terms of the OnePlus 7 Pro. The final two landed almost back to back, and as of today’s OxygenOS 9.5.9 update, that makes three updates in thirty-two days. The changelog this time around is “yuuge” OnePlus’ words, not mine. Let’s have a look.

As usual, this latest update provides even more camera enhancements, with better stitching from panoramas (not a problem I noticed in my testing), better autofocus, and improved quality when taking full 48MP JPG pictures within the “Pro” manual camera mode. Undefined performance enhancement when switching between the pop-out front-facing and rear cameras is also included, although it isn’t clear what has been modified — we’ll report back if there’s any noticeable difference in behavior post-update.

Additional touch sensitivity fixes are additionally included, just like the last two updates. Hopefully, this fixes any lingering problems regarding a few issues previously noticed, although reports appear to have subsided for both.

Sensitivity enhancements for automatic brightness are also included. Issues just like the phone waking at the lowest possible setting when pulling it out of my pocket and failing to vary with lighting are my biggest personal pet peeves utilizing the 7 Pro, so hopefully, those problems are fixed. Different tweaks like better haptics, improved resolution auto-switching, better screen off GPS efficiency and accuracy, also an all-new “Face Unlock assistive lighting” setting are additionally included, in addition to a bump in security patches to June, among other more minor adjustments.

The update is rolling out now, and the OTA clocks in at 325MB, so consider hopping onto Wi-Fi if that is too large for your data plan. A VPN to Canada has triggered it early for me as usual, though YMMV. We’ll make sure to update our coverage with official download links as soon as they’re posted, in addition to any additional details we spot. (Assuming OnePlus is not so prolific that another update lands before it finishes flashing.)
