A big new update is rolling out to OnePlus 5
units across the globe. Weighing in at 310MB, the new OxygenOS 4.5.7 brings some new features as well as a number of fixes for problems that owners of the device experienced since launch day.
Perhaps the biggest change on board is the inclusion of Electronic Image Stabilization (EIS) for 4K video recording. We'll make sure to test how well it works once the patch reaches the units in our office. There's also a new "OnePlus Slate" font which can be selected via a Font Switch tool (see below).
