OnePlus 5 gets a major new update: OxygenOS 4.5.7 packs EIS for 4K recording, font chooser, and more


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).


Here's the complete list of changes coming with the new update:

1. New additions:
  • Introducing the all new OnePlus Slate font
  • Added EIS for 4k video recording
2. Updates:
  • Updated Android security patch level to 1st July 2017
  • Updated to latest GMS package
3. Optimizations:
  • Wi-Fi connectivity improvements
  • Smoother automatic backlight adjustment
  • Standby battery enhancements
4. Bug Fixes:
  • Fixed sound being played out in the speakers occasionally when earphones are plugged in
  • Fixed camera shutter sound bug in silent mode for Indian region
  • Fixed missing sound channels when recording videos


The OTA rollout of the update is going to happen gradually, so it might need some time to reach all compatible devices. As always, make sure that your phone is sufficiently charged and connected to a Wi-Fi network before proceeding with the patch.

Fantastic news on the 4k EIS this has now in the running for my next new phone, I'm just waiting on the Nokia 8 camera samples to decide.

Oneplus listens. I'll install the update once it arrives.

They listened because Opo5 is flawed.

So when apple releases updates, they are updates. And when OnePlus does, OP5 is flawed? Going by that logic every phone is flawed. I would recommend you to stop trolling.

I apologize if i didnt make myself clear, but dude read the article they fixed and added features on Opo 5 which should have been made/added from the beginning specially it's their current flagship phone. Im not hating on the device im actually happy that opo listened, I used to have opo 2 but got dissapointed because they didnt even bother to update it officially to Android N. And besides, Nobody said about apple? Why you bringing it up? I didnt say EVERY PHONE is flawed. Again. Read the article and read my post. Trolling is not my forte. If you're too blind to see then I dont know what would matter to you. P. S Tell me the inverted display is not a flaw on the phone design then Opo telling the customer it isnt hardware problem lol.

Jelly fixed or got better or something? I like to replace my nexus 5x but jelly...

Apparently not everyone is getting the Jelly problem, so for me it sounds like more a hardware problem that software may be able to fix? Depending on the Nokia 8 Specs I may be getting the OnePlus 5 But sending it back if Jelly scrolling on screen.

The thing is most people who actually have the phone and are regular users say it's barely noticeable. People who are OCD though can't stand it, so if you're very particular about minor things it will be an issue and you might as well get a different device

Since oneplus 5 uses the same display panel as the 3, I flipped the phone upside down and rolled my finger over the screen up and down...and I can see the jelly effect pretty much. Don't think this can be fixed through software updates.
