OnePlus 5T update improves fingerprint/face unlock, video image stabilization and more

The OnePlus 5T is here and has so far been a success for OnePlus. It’s the company’s fastest-selling smartphone ever and reviews have been generally very positive. And it should only get better with time: OnePlus co-founder Carl Pei has already said that an upcoming update will improve its camera capabilities, but many other feature updates are also likely to appear in the coming weeks and months.

The first of these has just arrived, only a couple of days after the smartphone’s global release. Android Police spotted the ~107 MB update, which brings devices up to OxygenOS version 4.7.2, and includes improvements to fingerprint and face unlock (their accuracy, speed, or something else, we don’t know), as well as better electronic image stabilization during 4K video recording. The 5T should be secured against that nasty KRACK vulnerability following the update too.
