Currently, the tech world is buzzing with news about the upcoming OnePlus 5T. While the new model is expected to launch soon, it seems that the Chinese company is working behind the scenes to improve the Android experience for its customers on the OnePlus 5.
Besides, OnePlus is continuing to improve its system in terms of software. Well, the company has now started rolling out a new update for its current flagship. The update comes in the form of Oxygen OS v4.5.12 and it brings along several bugs fixes and improvements as well as a security fix for WPA2 KRACK vulnerability that has affected a large number of devices lately.
The WiFi WPA2 vulnerability was discovered by a researcher called Mathy Vanhoef, in mid-October. He had revealed that this attack could affect any system that was connected to the Wi-Fi. Due to this vulnerability cybercriminals could hack a Wi-Fi device and keep a tap on or eavesdrop on all the data that you send and receive over the network.
But OnePlus is making sure that its users don't fall prey to such attacks. It is a welcome relief for the users as well.
However, apart from this important security fix, the new OxygenOS version also brings in support for Airtel VoLTE and Band 66 of Freedom, respectively. This is specifically for Indian and Chinese users. Some of the other changes in the build include optimization of the battery, GPS accuracy, customization of notification ringtone, improved launching speed of apps, optimized adaptive brightness, fixes of YouTube video lagging and display issues of some UI elements.
"For those who were on previous versions for OnePlus 5, we appreciate your active feedback and attempts to reach out to us. With your help, we have been able to better optimise and improve several key areas. Thank you for your patience and as always, we look forward to hearing your continued feedback in the bug reporting forum," the company said in its forum post.
In any case, this update is an 'incremental' OTA update, therefore, the new OxygenOS version will take some time to reach all OnePlus 5 devices. The company has also stated that it will carry out a broader rollout in a few days.
