New OnePlus 5T update brings camera UI optimizations, photo quality improvements

Finally, the Oxygen OS 4.7.4 update has come to the OnePlus 5T devices.

However, it doesn't look like the update brings a fix to the issue of Beautification mode being turned on by default in Camera app. Users complained that Beautification mode made most selfies feel too smoothened out, and there was no way to turn it off. Pei said that the Beautification mode would be turned on by default only in select Asian countries.

After nearly a month of the OnePlus 5T's launch, the first camera-focussed update has been rolled out to the smartphone. The size of the new update is 285MB and it is already available via OTA or Over The Air transfer. OnePlus CEO Carl Pei had previously announced that the developers were working on updates to bring improved low-light conditions, further adding that the images would have more detail than before.

Other tweaks to the system include optimisations for the audio quality (both speaker and earphones), face unlock and vibrations. Then there are improvements related to fingerprint and Global Positioning System.

"For those who were on previous versions for OnePlus 5T, we appreciate your active feedback and attempts to reach out to us". The update was released on Thursday and will reach all OnePlus 5T units over the next few days. Lastly, the company has optimised the battery usage of phone when it is connected to a Wifi network. You could try using your VPN to trick the server into getting it to download the update.
