OnePlus 7 Pro holds so many great features but it does struggle in the camera department. However, it seems like, this is going to change from now on as a new update promises to improve the quality and fixes issues related to it. OnePlus has started rolling out OxygenOS 9.5.7 to the OnePlus 7 Pro and according to the changelog, the update looks pretty much big as it essentially targets the issues of the camera. The update improves the camera quality in many ways so that you could get a better shot than before, of course.
There’s now improved overall contrast and color performance; improved white balance consistency of triple camera; improved accuracy and stability of autofocusing. Apart from these improvements, the OxygenOS update also brings some fixes for the camera issues.

This camera quality issue of the OnePlus 7 Pro became the talk of the tech town and it grabbed more eyeballs when the DxOMark (a website providing image quality ratings for phones) report came out. Surprisingly, the device was declared one of the highest scorers and reviewers were amazed to note that. And, this highest score achieved by OnePlus 7 Pro couldn’t be gulped.
OnePlus knew about these complaints and that’s why it promised to iron out it shortly. Reacting to the criticism from the users, OxygenOS product manager, Jimmy Z., said that the camera performance of the OnePlus 7 Pro is being worked upon continually.
OnePlus took a new route this time and launched a Pro version alongside the more affordable OnePlus 7. The strategy of targeting different sectors of audience with different variants of its new phones is indeed giving fruits to the company. And, the company also knows that it just can’t let one of the biggest aspects of its new phones go.
