“OnePlus addressed the camera performance issue users are facing with the OnePlus 7 Pro and said it will be issuing an update in a week or so”
Earlier this month, OnePlus launched its latest flagships – the OnePlus 7 (first impressions) and OnePlus 7 Pro (review) in India. Within hours of the launch, the brand pushed out the first software update for the Pro variant, which brought camera improvements among other features. Notably, the OnePlus 7 Pro is the first from the brand to come with a triple camera module and yet received flak for poor camera quality. The brand has now assured users that it will be providing software updates to improve the camera quality.
On its official forum, OnePlus confirmed that the software team has been working continuously towards improving camera performance on the latest flagship. Responding to users’ complaints about the sub-par camera quality, OxygenOS Product Manager Jimmy Z said the next software update for the OnePlus 7 Pro will bring some serious improvements in terms of the HDR processing and the Nightscape 2.0 mode. He said the update will be rolled out to consumers in a week or so.
OnePlus also confirmed that the company is also developing new features to enhance the overall imaging performance of the latest flagship. Jimmy Z revealed that a future update might bring the capability to record video through any of the three cameras and not just the primary 48MP shooter. In a similar manner, the Nightscape mode will also be enabled for all three cameras instead of just the primary shooter. This should improve the overall picture quality on the OnePlus 7 Pro by leaps and bounds. However, there was no word on when these features will roll out.
To jog your memory, the OnePlus 7 Pro features a 48MP Sony IMX586 sensor with f/1.6 aperture and 1.6-micron pixel size, a 16MP f/2.2 117-degree wide-angle shooter, and an 8MP f/2.4 telephoto lens on the back. The triple camera module is backed by OIS, EIS, and dual LED flash.
