OnePlus 7 Pro gets touchscreen fixes, May security patch, more in OxygenOS 9.5.8

Updates to OxygenOS on the OnePlus 7 Pro continue to enhance what is already a great smartphone, and version 9.5.8 is starting up its rollout today. Here’s everything the latest update fixes.

Firstly, OxygenOS 9.5.8 brings the OnePlus 7 Pro up to the May 2019 security patch, one month newer than the April patch it ships with. Still, with the end of June quickly approaching, it would have nice to have seen at least June’s patch. That’s what we can expect when updates aren’t going to be monthly, though.

Further, this update also delivers some fixes for the touchscreen sensitivity. OnePlus doesn’t go into detail here, but presumably, this continues to focus on ghost touch problems and other assorted complaints. The update also “optimizes” compatibility with Type-C headphones and improves overall audio quality.

One thing I appreciate too is that OnePlus is fixing a flaw that would see the camera automatically open up when a video call, such as from Google’s Duo, would be ringing even if the screen was off. Following this update, the camera will stay closed until the phone is unlocked.

OnePlus 7 Pro OxygenOS 9.5.8 Changelog:

  • System
    • Optimized touch sensitivity for the screen
    • Optimized compatibility for third-party Type-C headphones
    • Updated Android security patch to 2019.05
    • General bug fixes and improvements
  • Phone
    • Improved audio quality
  • Camera
    • Fixed issue with the pop up camera opening for an incoming video call while the screen is off or locked

OxygenOS 9.5.8 is rolling out now to OnePlus 7 Pro owners as part of a staged rollout. All users should get the update in the next several days via OTA.
