OnePlus suspends buggy OxygenOS 12 update for 9 series
OnePlus has suspended the rollout of the Android 12-based OxygenOS 12 update for its 9 and 9 Pro smartphones that was released earlier this week. According to early adopters, the update has a slew of issues, including crashing menus, bad animations, inconsistent performance, slower Wi-Fi speed, trouble with calls, and broken auto-fill feature, among others. Here are more details.
Why does it matter?
- The major issues reported by OnePlus 9 and 9 Pro users are believed to be arising after switching from OxygenOS to ColorOS codebase. Hence, various settings and features are not transitioning properly.
- The 9 and 9 Pro are the first OnePlus smartphones to have been upgraded from OxygenOS to the new OPPO-based operating system with Android 12 on top.
A bug-free update will be released soon: OnePlus
"We are aware of the issues caused by the OxygenOS 12 update and our software team is fixing them. We will suspend this software update and roll out a new iteration as soon as possible," OnePlus said in a statement to Android Police.
The phones bear a 120Hz AMOLED screen
As far as their specifications are concerned, the OnePlus 9 and 9 Pro feature a left-aligned punch-hole cut-out, slim bezels, and an in-display fingerprint sensor. The former has a 6.55-inch Full-HD+ (1080x2400 pixels) Fluid AMOLED screen while the latter sports an IP68 rating and a 6.7-inch QHD+ (1440x3216 pixels) LTPO AMOLED display. Both the devices offer a 120Hz refresh rate and HDR10+ support.
The duo gets a 16MP front camera
OnePlus 9 has a 48MP (f/1.8) primary sensor, a 50MP (f/2.2) ultra-wide snapper, and a 2MP (f/2.4) monochrome lens. The Pro model offers a similar arrangement on the rear with an additional 8MP (f/2.4) telephoto camera. Up front, they have a 16MP (f/2.4) selfie shooter.
The handsets are backed by a 4,500mAh battery
The OnePlus 9 and 9 Pro draw power from a Snapdragon 888 chipset, paired with up to 12GB of RAM and up to 256GB of storage. Under the hood, they pack a 4,500mAh battery with 65W fast-charging support. The 9 Pro also supports 50W wireless fast-charging. For connectivity, the handsets offer support for Wi-Fi 6, Bluetooth 5.2, GPS, 5G, and a Type-C port.
