OnePlus 8 Pro

New updates have started rolling out to the OnePlus 8 and 8 Pro, and they’re bringing with them a ton of improvements.

The updates are arriving as OxygenOS 10.5.8 for the OnePlus 8 and OxygenOS 10.5.10 for the OnePlus 8 Pro. According to XDA-Developers, you can expect improvements like optimized power consumption for longer battery life, a smoother unlocking transition, optimized touch and interaction experiences, and a better pocket mode to reduce mistouches. 

There are a handful of camera improvements packed in the updates, too. An auto ultra wide angle lens feature will improve the photo quality of edges when shooting a close range on the OnePlus 8 Pro, and an optimized click animation for the camera shutter will make the process of taking a photo smoother.

Other goodies in these updates including improved network stability, improved performance of Wi-Fi transfers, optimized network latency for online games, and the May 2020 Android security patches.
