OnePlus has started rolling out a new update to its first foldable smartphone, the OnePlus Open, but it’s not Android 14. Many of you were probably hoping the next (this) update would bring Android 14 and OxygenOS 14, well… we’ll have to wait a bit longer.
This update does bring the January 2024 security patch to the table, though. The update is marked as CPH2551_126.96.36.1991. It weighs 459MB, and in addition to a new security patch, it brings forth improvements and fixes.
A new update is rolling out to the OnePlus Open, but without Android 14
Before we get into the details, do note that this update seems to be rolling out to all OnePlus Open units out there. It’s popping up all over Europe, and chances are users in the US are also getting it.
In the changelog, OnePlus quotes improved stability, and improved touch control experience with this update. On top of that, this improves the Open Canvas too. You can now drag an app to replace the current one in a three-way split view.
If you’ve been experiencing a display issue in Quick Settings, that should be fixed now. The Background stream feature in Smart Sidebar has been removed with this update as well.
This update delivers ‘Communications’ and ‘Camera’ improvements too
In the ‘Communications’ section we see one entry. OnePlus says that it also improved the stability of network connections. There is one entry in the changelog for the ‘Camera’ too. The camera performance seems to have been improved.
That’s basically everything this changelog has to deliver. This is not exactly a major update, but it’s nice to see it either way. We’re hoping that the next one OnePlus releases will bring Android 14 and OxygenOS 14 to the OnePlus Open.
That update should improve the phone’s performance even further, even though it works great as it is. It will also deliver the ability to automatically cut out shapes from images, and much more.
