Just a couple of weeks ago, OnePlus announced its new flagship contenders for the first half of 2021. The devices came in the form of the OnePlus 9, OnePlus 9 Pro, and OnePlus 9R. The latter has the Snapdragon 87o and is a cost-effective choice that will only be available in the Indian market. The other two are Snapdragon 888-powered flagships and will be available in several markets across the world. The duo of flagships came with OxygenOS 11 in the majority of the markets, while the Chinese variants have the ColorOS 11.2 skin. Yesterday, OnePlus rolled out a new ColorOS 11 update for the variants in China. Now, it is bringing a new incremental upgrade for the remaining OxygenOS 11 variants.
OxygenOS 220.127.116.11 coming with bug fixes for OnePlus 9 and 9 Pro
Interestingly, the new OxygenOS update bearing version 18.104.22.168 comes to a couple of days after the 22.214.171.124 update. We’re used to seeing OnePlus launching a bunch of updates after launching smartphones to make the software perfect. Apparently, the development team isn’t being able to finish the software before the launch, or certain bugs can’t be spotted in internal testing. Anyway, the new software update brings a couple of patches to improve the camera and other aspects of the software. It’s currently rolling out in India for the OnePlus 9 Pro. The North American and European rollouts should start very soon. The vanilla OnePlus 9 will also receive the same treatment in the aforementioned markets pretty soon.
The major improvements in the OxygenOS 126.96.36.199 update are related to the camera and reducing standby power draw. The other remaining details of this update are related to improving the overall stability of the software. According to users’ reports, the battery issue that was greatly affecting the device’s standby times is finally fixed. However, some users that installed the update state the camera is still a bit laggy.

As usual, the new firmware is rolling out in batches, so it may still take a couple of days to reach all eligible devices. Moreover, the rollout started in India which will give a certain advantage to the market. The United States and Europe will be slightly behind India, but we expect most devices to get this update before the weekend.
