New OnePlus 5 update adds EIS for 4K videos and more

OnePlus 5 Back

OnePlus has officially begun sending out OxygenOS 4.5.7 for the OnePlus 5, bringing a couple of updates and improvements to the smartphone. The most notable among them is the arrival of Electronic Image Stabilization (EIS) for 4K videos.

To recall, OnePlus had actually promised to add EIS via an OTA upgrade back in June this year. The OnePlus 5 had come under some heavy criticism at the time for its lack of the technology, with many complaining that their 4K footage would come out looking shaky and unstable.

OnePlus later explained that EIS for 4K videos was part of its original plans but it unfortunately didn’t get to implement the tool in time. It chose to focus its attention on stabilization for videos shot in 1080p and through the front-facing shooter instead.

In any case, OxygenOS 4.5.7 now takes care of this problem. It also adds an all-new OnePlus Slate font to the mix and promotes the GMS package to the latest version. The company’s gone ahead and updated the Android security patch level to 1 July 2017 as well.

Up-to-date OnePlus 5 units will also receive the benefit of Wi-Fi connectivity improvements and standby battery enhancements. It’ll stop leaking out sound from the speakers when using earphones. Indian owners will find that the camera shutter sound bug in silent mode has been fixed. Plus, the issue of missing sound channels when recording videos has been resolved.

OxygenOS 4.5.7 is currently beaming out incrementally to a small number of users. It’ll begin hitting more OnePlus 5 units over the course of the next few days.
