What you need to know
- OnePlus has started rolling out the August 2020 security patch to the OnePlus 8 and OnePlus 8 Pro.
- The update also comes with fixes for the ambient display.
- Finally, OnePlus adds an optimized shooting effect with the front camera.
As per XDA Developers, here's what's new in this update:
- Fixed the overlapping character display issue with Ambient display
- Fixed known issues and improved system stability
- Updated Android Security Patch to 2020.08
- Optimized shooting effect with front camera
The security update itself isn't anything super interesting. There are some media and processor framework improvements, but OnePlus' front-facing camera and ambient display fixes are the most noteworthy improvements coming down the line. The OnePlus 7/7T series will also get this update later this month, alongside a new user-assistance feature. You can check for the update from the settings app if you're using one of these phones.
In the future, OnePlus plans to update OxygenOS to more closely resemble Samsung's version of Android or OneUi. Depending on how you feel about the change, we may miss the halcyon days of boring updates.
Still no support for dual SIM in the USA. Horrible false advertising by OnePlus. Never buying another phone from them.
They never advertised that US carrier devices will be dual sim.
