OnePlus 11 is the latest flagship launches of 2023, having just received its global debut earlier this month. So far, the device has been getting a positive response, and to enhance the positivity, the device is already receiving a new update.
As noted by XDA Developers, the OnePlus 11 users in India are receiving their first OTA update sporting the CPH2447_11_A.07 firmware version. While the firmware is new, the security level is a smidge old, featuring a January 2023 Android security patch. It's likely other regions will receive the update in due time.
The report notes that the firmware is more of an incremental update rather than a new feature-packed one. It's understandable, as the phone was technically launched only a week ago, and users are likely still waiting for their handsets to be delivered.
In regards to the update that is currently being received, the changelog mentions system-wide improvements next to communication enhancements and app fixes.
The noticeable system-wide changes comprise stability improvements and fixes to the automatic brightness adjustments and quick settings panel. One fix also targets a problem with sharing images on WhatsApp.
Below is the full changelog for the first OnePlus 11 update:
- Improves system stability.
- Improves automatic adjustment of screen brightness in dark environments.
- Fixes an issue where the Quick Settings panel occasionally cannot be pulled down.
- Integrates the January 2023 Android security patch to enhance system security.
- Improves the stability of Wi-Fi connection.
- Improves the connection stability of Bluetooth and wired earphones.
- Fixes an issue where photos cannot be shared in WhatsApp when it is opened in a floating window.
