OxygenOS 9.5.5 for OnePlus 7 rolling out w/ camera improvements, May patch

OxygenOS 9.5.5 is now rolling out to OnePlus 7 devices and brings with it a series of camera fixes and improvements alongside the May 2019 security patch.

We saw recently that the OnePlus 7 Pro received a long-awaited series of fixes for the sometimes average camera performance. OxygenOS 9.5.5 for the OnePlus 7 is now bringing some camera improvements of its own.

Announced on the OnePlus official forums, the update is said to improve camera contrast and color performance, autofocusing, and offers quite the overhaul for Nightscape mode. Nightscape has seen vast improvements on the OnePlus 7 Pro since the latest update was released, so let’s hope for similar improvements from the 9.5.5 OTA.

The May 2019 security patch is a welcome inclusion but we do hope the June 2019 patch is soon made available for all OnePlus devices.
