OnePlus has announced a trio of new smartphones today, and two of those are already in the process of receiving their first ever software update. We're talking about the OnePlus 9 and 9 Pro, to which OxygenOS is now rolling out over-the-air.

Since these aren't on sale yet, only review units are receiving the update for now, but it's a safe bet that this new build will be awaiting early buyers when they unbox their shiny new handsets.

It's still based on Android 11, of course, and you're faced with a 345MB download to obtain it. It comes with optimizations for charging stability and the UI display of notifications, as well as fixes for other known issues and overall better system stability, Bluetooth compatibility, and improved stability of telecommunication functions and Wi-Fi transmission performance and stability.

Additionally, there's optimized video filming fluidity, better color performance for the Pro mode, and supposed improvements to noise and white balance issues with the rear camera, as well as its nighttime brightness and highlight control.

All in all, it seems like a good one to install from the moment you receive your OnePlus 9 or 9 Pro.

Hopefully these will help you decide which one is for you.

Every other OEM has more or less same processes. But nobody does like One+. it's just a means of fooling the buyers. And you are right- Some people should think ( why a company releases an update within 24 hours of unveiling every time)
