The OnePlus 7 Pro shipped with impressive camera hardware, including a 48-megapixel main camera, an 8-megapixel telephoto sensor, and a 16-megapixel ultrawide lens. But some fans had grumbled to OnePlus about the camera’s performance, particularly in low-light settings.

In our review, we were particularly impressed with the detail and the new 3x lossless zoom. However, we noticed that the bokeh portait mode was prone to inaccuracy, and we also shared the reservations about its performance in low-light, arguing that it needs more work in this area. Let’s hope the software update offers some improvements to these key areas.

Aside from the camera improvements, there are also a few system updates in the package, including:

  • Optimized Double Tap to Wake
  • Fixed issues with Ambient Display
  • Improved the audio quality for voice calls from third-party apps
  • Improved touch sensitivity for screen

As it stands the Pixel 3a and Huawei P30 Pro remain the best performing camera phones in low light.
