OnePlus 7 and 7T Widevine DRM fix comes with a caveat

OnePlus 7 and 7T Widevine DRM fix comes with a caveat

There has been a lot of griping about the quality and pace of OnePlus' recent software updates, especially when OxygenOS 11 brought about major UI changes and, with it, some nasty bugs. OnePlus 7 and 7T owners, however, seem to have had it worse and have experienced the worst that the release has to offer. After two months since the issue appeared, OnePlus is finally rolling out the fix to a bug that locked users into watching SD quality streaming videos, but many users still aren't satisfied with how the update is being handled.

OnePlus 9T may have been canceled

At first, it was the COVID-19 pandemic that threw plans and schedules into chaos. Now the tech industry is facing yet another crisis, one that could affect anything that has an integrated chip, which is almost all electronics these days. Although smartphone companies are less forthcoming about it, insider sources reveal some reshuffling of schedules and products behind the scenes. One of those is OnePlus, which already canned some North American OnePlus 9 configurations because of the chip supply shortage and might even be canceling the OnePlus 9T for the same reason.

OnePlus Nord 2 OxygenOS is built on top of OPPO ColorOS

OnePlus Nord 2 OxygenOS is built on top of OPPO ColorOS

The line that divides OnePlus and its distant cousin OPPO is becoming thinner and blurrier. Not long after OnePlus CEO Pete Lau took up a key position in OPPO, OnePlus announced that it would be using OPPO's ColorOS instead of its own HydrogenOS for Chinese models. It didn't take long for the two companies' software teams to merge, and the first fruits of this unification of OxygenOS and ColorOS can be found but not seen in the new OnePlus Nord 2.

OnePlus CPU throttling will have a toggle switch in Android 12

OnePlus CPU throttling will have a toggle switch in Android 12

A former darling of the smartphone market, OnePlus has recently received a lot of flak over one unpopular strategy after another. Its software commitment for some of the OnePlus Nord phones didn't sit well for fans of the company's "Never Settle" philosophy, and its "merger" with OPPO raised doubts about its future. Its biggest offense of late, however, is its secret throttling of performance on OnePlus 9 phones. Now it seems to be reconsidering its position and will offer a compromise, but probably not until next year.

OnePlus Nord 2 battery and 65W charging officially confirmed

OnePlus has a marketing strategy that, just like its earliest phones, broke all the conventions of traditional smartphone businesses. While most companies try hard to keep things under wraps, OnePlus embraced the tech industry's "leaks culture" and does its own not-so-subtle teasing days ahead of a new product launch. With just hours before the OnePlus Nord 2 5G's debut, the company is dropping the last few pieces of the picture while still leaving a few tidbits unconfirmed.

OnePlus Nord N10 5G Android 11 rolls out as its first and last upgrade

The OnePlus Nord series is a bit of a double-edged sword for the company. On the one hand, its decision to launch affordable mid-range phones in certain markets has been warmly received. On the other hand, there has been major dissatisfaction with its commitment to the phones' software. That is commitment will be greatly tested in the OnePlus Nord N10 5G, which has finally started receiving OxygenOS 11 with Android 11, marking the beginning and the end for the phone's Android upgrades.

OnePlus Buds Pro adaptive noise cancellation will be its headline feature

Truly Wireless Stereo earbuds are a dime a dozen these days. Some use their brand strength to catch buyers' attention and money, while others try to come up with gimmicks or feature buzzwords to stand out from the crowd. OnePlus' upcoming TWS buds will probably try to use both strategies. Based on its own teasing of its features, the OnePlus Buds Pro will be flaunting a newer, more advanced kind of noise cancellation technology to appeal to audiophiles.

Sorry US OnePlus fans: No base model 9 Pro for you

The OnePlus 9 Pro has been available in the US in some configurations for several months now, but those of you holding out for the base model to make its way Stateside should probably abandon hope.
