OnePlus 5 gets EIS for 4K videos in latest update

A month ago, OnePlus promised to enable EIS for 4K video recording on the OnePlus 5 and here it is – OxygenOS 4.5.7 brings the additional stabilization, along with some other changes.

EIS (Electronic Image Stabilization) requires a lot of computing power, which is why many phones put an upper limit of 1080p/30fps. The Snapdragon 835 has enough grunt to pull it off, though.

The rest of the changelog includes Wi-Fi connectivity improvements (again) and standby battery enhancements (it doesn’t say if Energy Aware Scheduling is enabled). There’s also a new font (OnePlus Slate), Android Security Patch July 1st 2017 and a newer Google Mobile Services package.

There are bugfixes as well:

  • Fixed occasional sound leaks in the speakers when using earphones
  • Fixed camera shutter sound bug in silent mode for Indian region
  • Fixed missing sound channels when recording videos

Note that this update is being distributed incrementally over the air. Today, only a lucky few will get it, but the rollout will pick up speed in the next few days.
