Bought the new OnePlus 8T(₹ 38999 at amazon)? There’s a new update available that improves power consumption and reduces heat generation. The update is small, but seems to carry important fixes for the newly rolled out OxygenOS 11 software, and is the second update to hit the OnePlus 8T since its launch.
The new update is versioned OxygenOS 184.108.40.206 and is available for OnePlus 8T users across the globe. There are no new features that comes with this update. Instead, the company fixed a few performance issues that were reported by users.
The update changelog states OnePlus has optimised power consumption and reduced heat generation. There was also an issue of icons not being displayed on the home screen that has been fixed. OnePlus has also fixed Bluetooth latency issues and improved connection stability. Furthermore, a gallery app issue where the display behaved abnormally when previewing a photo has been fixed. And for 5G users, OnePlus has improved the intelligent 5G switch function to improve battery endurance.
The OnePlus 8T is the company’s third flagship smartphone this year in India, amidst a busy launch year which saw a bunch of new additions in the budget and mid-range segment. The 8T sits somewhere between the OnePlus 8 and 8 Pro, borrowing and refining features from both of them.
The highlight of the smartphone is a 120Hz AMOLED display measuring 6.55-inches with HDR10+ support. And 65W fast charging, making the OnePlus 8T the fastest charging OnePlus flagship so far. The Snapdragon 865 powers the smartphone combined with up to 12GB LPDDR4X RAM and 256GB UFS 3.1 storage.
The OnePlus 8T rocks a quad camera stack at the back. This includes the good ol’ Sony IMX586 48MP camera with and f/1.7 lens along with OIS and EIS. There’s also a 16MP ultrawide camera, a 5MP macro camera and a 2MP monochrome camera.
