OnePlus is incredibly emphasizing to provide an appealing software to its new flagship, the OnePlus 9. Soon after the launch, OnePlus announced the end of HydrogenOS and that the series will run on Oppo’s ColorOS as it brings a clean experience based on vanilla Android. While the OnePlus 9 and 9 Pro already received OxygenOS 11.2 update in India, the Chinese giant is taking it a step further by bringing it to the Chinese units of the smartphones.
To clear any doubts, it’s alright for both the giants to run similar OS as they are a part of the BBK Electronics group, including Realme and Vivo. Obviously, OxygenOS 11.2 is based on Android 11 but it has its own set of features and visuals.
The latest build for the OnePlus 9 and the OnePlus 9 Pro weighs 230MB in size and brings several new features and improvements. Apart from the Android 11 attributes, the update adds a Flashback Button that enables the user to have a glimpse at key information while switching between different apps. Moreover, it has introduced a Floating Ball function that gives the user easy access to handy features.
If we consider the camera, the software optimizes the noise and color expression of indoor scenes with the rear cameras. Furthermore, it enhances the zoom capability, ultra-wide-angle movement delay, and other functions. In favor of gamers, the new system OS fixes the issue of network delay while playing online games and also, improves gaming fluency.
The OnePlus 9 and OnePlus 9 Pro users in China will receive the fresh firmware via OTA. Accordingly, it might take a while to reach out to all units.
