OnePlus 7 Pro 5G gets OxygenOS 9.5.4 update, fixes issues with pop-up camera, app icons, and more

It was time the 5G variant in the OnePlus 7 series got its major bug-fixer update, too. It’s well documented that the launch units (or software) of the OnePlus 7 handsets suffered from various issues, most glaring of which were the ghost touch issue, and the double tap to wake problem.

Both OnePlus 7 and OnePlus 7 Pro have received their respective updates — and then some more — to fix those first reported issues but today, OnePlus 7 Pro 5G is getting the said update too.

Dubbed OxygenOS 9.5.4, OnePlus says the update fixes problems like double tap to wake, touch sensitivity, ghost touch, pop-camera opening on a video call, persisting fingerprint animation, app icons failing to show, and general bug fixes.

Here’s the full changelog of the OxygenOS 9.5.4 update for OnePlus 7 Pro 5G.

  • System
    • Optimized DC dimming
    • Improved touch sensitivity for the screen
    • Optimized Double Tap to Wake and Ambient Display
    • General bug fixes and improvements
  • Camera
    • Fixed issue with the pop-up camera opening for an incoming video call while the screen is off or locked
  • Launcher
    • Fixed issue with fingerprint animation persisting on the screen while unlocked successfully
    • Fixed issue with app icons failing to display while unlocked successfully

To install the OxygenOS 9.5.4 update, hit up Settings app > scroll down and tap on System > and then tap on System updates.
