OnePlus’ latest flagship smartphone may only be a few weeks old but the company has already started rolling out a software update for it. The OxygenOS 4.7.2 update is about 48MB in size and brings with it a bunch of fixes and improvements.

As per the changelog, the new update includes optimisations for face unlock, fingerprint unlock, screen off gestures, improved EIS during video recording and more. Further, the update also brings with it a patch for the KRACK vulnerability that surfaced last month. The vulnerability is a Wi-Fi exploit and made anyone using the Wi-Fi Protected Access II (WPA 2) protocol susceptible. Users were also advised to use a VPN to encrypt their data.

To recall, the OnePlus 5T was unveiled just a few months after the launch of the OnePlus 5. While did this decision did cause some unhappiness amongst its fans, the company claimed that it still managed to break sales records. While the two phones are pretty similar from a hardware perspective, the design of the two devices is quite different. The OnePlus 5T sports a 6.01-inch FHD+ Optic AMOLED  display with an 18:9 display aspect ratio. In order to accommodate the new screen, the fingerprint sensor was moved to the back. The dual rear camera setup on the phone is still 16MP+20MP, but this time around, it does not offer 2x optical zoom. Instead, the two cameras offer the same f/1.7 aperture lens and 27.22mm focal length. This lets the new phone take better images in low light conditions. 

Like the OnePlus 5, the OnePlus 5T is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 SoC and is available in two variants. The 6Gb RAM/64GB storage variant is priced at Rs 32,999, while the 8GB RAM/128GB storage variant is priced at Rs 37,999.
