The newly launched OnePlus 9 series runs ColorOS instead of HydrogenOS in China. In fact, the brand has even promised to update its older devices to OPPO’s Android skin. Now, few days after the launch of these smartphones, the company has started rolling out the ColorOS 11.2 update with lots of optimizations.
Lately, OnePlus has been releasing smartphones with buggy software builds. However, to the company’s credit, it continues to roll out new builds with fixes and optimizations. But unfortunately, due to this move, most OnePlus devices are yet to get the Android 11 update.
We thought that would change with the brand opting for ColorOS in China. But that doesn’t seem to be the case, at least for now. Because OnePlus is currently seeding out ColorOS 11.2 for the OnePlus 9 and the OnePlus 9 Pro with a number of optimizations
For starters, the new update adds support for the OnePlus Watch. Also, for some reason, ColorOS for OnePlus lacked the popular ‘Assistive Ball’ and ‘Flashback Button’ at launch. Hence, these two features also make their way to the OnePlus 9 series with the new update.
Other than the above-mentioned features, the ColorOS 11.2 update is all about optimizations for ‘All Clear’ button in the notification bar, system power consumption for better battery life, touch experience in some scenarios, noise and color expression of indoor scene with the rear camera, rear camera focus and video stability, ultra-wide-angle delay, camera stability, camera zoom experience, overall camera photo and video experience.
Lately, the update also brings optimizations for health app icon and online game network delays to improve fluency, in addition to fixes for some known issues to improve system stability.
The latest system update for the Chinese variant of the OnePlus 9 and OnePlus 9 Pro is being rolled out in batches. This build should be available for all the units, including imported ones in the coming days.
