OnePlus 7 Pro update addresses the biggest complaint

The OnePlus 7 Pro has only been on sale a couple of weeks, but the firm is already dishing out software updates to remedy some perceived flaws.

Today’s update brings improvements for the camera for the OnePlus 7 Pro handset, which promises better HDR performance, while sorting out the white balance and focus issues mentioned by early adopters.

OnePlus is also taking the opportunity to improve the Ambient Display, optimising the Tap To Wake feature, while it is also tackling an issue with Bluetooth headsets that has led to some users complaining about audio lag when playing games.

While the update addresses many of the perceived issues with the OnePlus 7 Pro out of the box, it doesn’t contend with a relatively new complaint. Last week it emerged OnePlus 7 owners were experiencing ‘ghost touch’ issues, where the handset would register phantom user inputs, especially in the top right corner of the screen.

A thread on the OnePlus Forums features complaints from users experiencing “ghost touches” in random parts of the display. According to the users experiencing the issue, it occurs whether they’re touching the device or not, and in a wide variety of apps.

Currently, it’s unclear whether the glitch is hardware or software-related, but not all device owners are experiencing the problem. OnePlus’ own bug hunters are reaching out to consumers in the hope of narrowing down the cause. The company is yet to officially comment on the issue, but we’ll keep you posted.
