OnePlus has started rolling out the highly-anticipated bug-fix and maintenance update for its flagship OnePlus 5 via OxygenOS 4.5.8. The new update brings EIS support for 4K video recording which was missing in the previous OxygenOS update. Consequently, the OxygenOS 4.5.7 update was withdrawn within a few hours of its release, a couple of days ago.
The handset maker has not commented on the reasons behind withdrawal of the previous OxygenOS update. However, the latest update addresses a few critical issues including standby battery problems and Wi-Fi connectivity issues.
