“Fnatic gaming mode restricts notifications and allocates system resources for the smooth and uninterrupted gaming sessions”
Just a day after going on sale in India and a few other markets, OnePlus 7 is already receiving its first update. The OxygenOS 9.5.4.GM57AA, which is 223MB in size, brings Google April security patch, DC Dimming, improved screen scrolling experience and more. The DC Dimming feature automatically adjusts the current sent to each pixel on display, thereby lowering the brightness while keeping the pixels alive all the time. This means that there won’t be any flickering and doesn’t strain eyes under lowlight conditions.
Furthermore, the update also adds OnePlus’s Fnatic gaming mode that restricts notifications and allocates system resources for the smooth and uninterrupted gaming experience. The feature can be enabled from utilities in system settings and then Gaming Mode. It also brings fingerprint sensor improvements, optimised photo quality and other general bug fixes. The OTA update has already started rolling out and should reach everyone within a few days. Users can also check for the update manually in the Settings app.
