OnePlus 5 is getting a new software update that pushes users to OxygenOS v4.5.5. The update fixes some of the problems known as WiFi connection and voice recording.
OnePlus has launched a new update for OnePlus 5 that fixes some of the known issues. Detailed new updates by Android headlines bring improvements in WiFi connectivity and other stability solutions.
The update is being rolled out in phases, pushing OnePlus 5 users to Oxygen OS v4.5.5. In addition to the Wi-Fi connectivity fix, the new update also improves voice calling. Changelog also mentions optimization for video recording, which now uses less battery and reduces vibration intensity when receiving calls. The update weighs 59MB and also offers some bug fixes. With OxygenOS v4.5.5, OnePlus has fixed the issue of consistent display of Wi-Fi signals and also some apps not being able to work under IPv6 network settings. Changelog notes that in order to restore the connection to a Windows 10 PC, users need to turn off USB debugging before upgrading.
To recall, the OnePlus 5 was announced for global market on June 20 and followed up with the launch in India on June 22. Since its launch, OnePlus has been cheating by increasing the performance of review units when a benchmark software is launched on the device. A recent report has also shown a strange behavior called ‘jelly’ scrolling effect where some parts of the feed fail to keep pace with the rest.
An XDA report suggested that the problem was caused by an inverted display, but OnePlus has already dismissed it as normal. The current update does not address the ‘jelly scrolling effect’ problem. However, it is important to note that this is the second software update for OnePlus 5 since its launch.
