The latest releases from the smartphone OEM OnePlus, the 8 and 8 Pro, have been issued new versions of their Android skin, OxygenOS. These updates are intended to fix the "green tint" defect reported by some users. They have also been released to enhance some aspects of the phones' cameras.

OnePlus has announced new software updates for the 8 and 8 Pro. Their changelogs make no mention of typically desirable aspects of new OTAs such as security updates; all the same, some users of the high-priced flagships may be glad to see it coming. 

This is because the updates are designed to "[optimize] the display effects" in either new phone. This loosely translates as a solution to a bug in which these devices' screens had a noticeably green cast in comparison to those of other premium AMOLED panels (particularly in the 8 Pro). One or two users now report that the newer software fixes this problem, whereas others assert it does not.

These new packages are known as OxygenOS 10.5.x for the 8 series. More specifically, those with the Pro variant should soon get a notification to install its 10.5.5 version (for all region-specific units of this phone). Those with EU units of the vanilla model, on the other hand, should look out for v.10.5.3 of the ROM, or 10.5.4 for the Indian or North American variants.
