OxygenOS 10.5.10 is now rolling out for European owners of the OnePlus 8 Pro, with the update bringing a bunch of notable fixes including tweaking the Photochrom camera filter and June 2020 security patch.

[Update 07/09]: OxygenOS 10.5.10 is also rolling out for the OnePlus in a few flavors. For those in India, it will arrive as OxygenOS 10.5.9, in EU it’s 10.5.8. There are a few minor alterations depending on the region too.

The update was confirmed over on the official OnePlus Forums — with the OnePlus 8 Pro update also being confirmed at the same time. It brings the June patch, plus a lot of the same tweaks we saw on the flagship OnePlus device yesterday. In all honesty, it’s practically the same update but without the Color Filter camera tweaks.

You can check out the full changelog below:

  • System
    • Optimized the touch and interaction experience
    • Optimized the power consumption performance of the system, battery life extended to be longer than ever
    • Optimized the high-temperature warning to improve user experience
    • Fixed the failure to full-charge when battery was charged to 90% and above in a few circumstances
    • Fixed the issue with Netflix and Amazon Prime Video unable to play HD video on some machines
    • Fixed known issues and improved system stability
    • Updated Android Security Patch to 2020.06
  • Camera
    • Improved the shooting experience with camera and improved stability
  • Cloud service
    • Added the file disk section in file manager: now conveniently upload and store all your files on OnePlus Cloud seamlessly (India only)
  • Network
    • Band 46 CA combo enabled for India Network (India only)
    • Added Visible network compatibility in the U.S. (NA only)
    • Improved the stability of communication
    • Improved the performance and stability of Wi-Fi transfers
    • Optimized network latency for online games and improved the smoothness

According to reports over on Reddit, the update is now beginning to roll out across Europe. With OnePlus set to unveil the OnePlus Nord in the coming weeks, it’s a little later than you might have expected but still welcome all the same.

The issue with the Photochrom filter being able to see-through certain thin plastics and fabrics has now been resolved — but some of you might not be happy. According to some digging by the guys over at XDA, the actual adjustment of this filter means that instead of using the Color Filter camera, it looks like OxygenOS 10.5.10 ports over to the ultra-wide-angle lens. This means that the Color Filter lens is effectively disabled with this update.

You’ll get some other new additions including optimized power consumption, which should hopefully extend your overall battery life. There are also some other optimizations for battery charging, high-temperature warnings, plus video tweaks for Netflix and Amazon Prime HD video playback.

The camera has also had some stability improvements, which should hopefully improve the overall shooting experience. You can see the full OxygenOS 10.5.10 update changelog below:

This isn’t likely the solution that many were hoping for with the Color Filter lens, as it definitely offers far less impressive results. The quality dip is quite substantial, although this is not a filter that was particularly impressive, to begin with.

For those wanting to update their device to the OxygenOS 10.5.10 OTA, you should see the update rolling out over the coming days. You can always grab it via Oxygen Updater if you are impatient though. With that said, if you are a fan of the minor X-ray capabilities of the Photochrom filter, then we advise that you steer clear of this update package.
