The OnePlus 5 and 5T are still under two years old, as the 5 was released in June 2017, and the 5T came out in November of the same year. If you were still a bit concerned that either phone would miss out on Android Q, you can rest easy — OnePlus has confirmed that both devices will (eventually) get the update.

Some OnePlus 7 Pros are suffering 'phantom' touch input issues

Back when OnePlus debuted with its disruptive new OnePlus One phone in 2014, touchscreen issues were chief among complaints, and for some, the latest 7 Pro may be a bit of a throwback. As of now, there are a good number of reports together with example videos that demonstrate the OnePlus 7 Pro's touchscreen is randomly processing non-existent taps, an effect which has been alternately called "ghost" or "phantom" touches.

OnePlus 7 Pro factory images and update page are live

The OnePlus 7 Pro is the company's latest foray into flagship territory. As usual, the phone undercuts its competitors with high specs for a relatively low price (if we only compare the MSRP and keep the generally rising costs of smartphones in mind, that is), all while coming with the clean and fast software we've come to love the manufacturer for. Speaking of which: OnePlus has released the official download for the device's latest Oxygen OS on its website.

[Update: Clarification] The OnePlus 7 Pro's telephoto lens isn't technically 3x "optical" zoom

OnePlus was quick to market its latest 7 Pro as having substantial photography improvements — it even danced around a National Geographic photographer at its launch event to talk about the cameras — but it turns out that some of the numbers tossed around in spec sheets while discussing the phone weren't quite right. That 3x telephoto lens included in the trifecta of cameras isn't actually providing a "3x optical zoom." In fact, it's closer to 2.2x, and it makes up for the difference by cropping.

Android 9 Pie now rolling out to OnePlus 3 and 3T

As unfortunate as it sounds, it's rare for an Android phone to get major updates two years after release. Google and Samsung have done it on occasion, but it's far from the norm. OnePlus received plenty of praise when it announced that the OnePlus 3 and 3T, both released in 2016, would get Android 9 Pie. Now the company has delivered on that promise, as Pie is now rolling out to both phones.

The OnePlus 7 Pro's pop-up camera can still do Face Unlock — and it's pretty fast

When the details about the pop-up camera for the OnePlus 7 Pro first started to leak out, our first concern was how that might affect the company's Face Unlock. The feature is among the fastest of its type when it comes to unlocking your device. Even if its security is doubtful, it's quite a convenience, and the extra lag imposed by the pop-up camera could have been a dealbreaker. We're happy to report that it's still very fast, though it is a bit awkward.

OnePlus' Warp Charge standard pushes up to 30W to the company's latest 7 Pro, delivering 50% more power compared to the previous 20W Dash Charging system.
