OnePlus 9R gets OxygenOS with May security patch, fixes, and improvements

OnePlus is sending a new software update to the mid-range OnePlus 9R. The update brings May 2021 security patch, several fixes, and improvements to OnePlus Games, Gallery, and Cameras. 

OnePlus 9R OxygenOS update

OnePlus 9R launched back in March this year as the cheapest phone under the OnePlus 9 series. The phone has been only launched in India and China. The Indian variant got the company’s popular OxygenOS, while the Chinese variant runs ColorOS. So, it’s obvious that the OxygenOS update is for the OnePlus 9R Indian users. 

The update brings fixes to abnormal silent notification issue after muting the media volume, UI issues in Freeform Windows, new notes syncing issue, abnormal image issue under Nightscape mode, and fixes some general issue. OxygenOS improves – the overall user experience of OnePlus Games, picture preview smoothness in Gallery, and camera stability & shooting performance.

As usual, the update is rolling out in an incremental fashion. So, it may take a while to reach your smartphone. To manually check for the latest update, navigate to System > System Updates > Download and install.
