The tech industry is always trying to answer the growing demands of the market. It is no wonder that you hear about updates for gadgets left and right. The businesses that sell cell-phones, laptops and other gadgets are always on the lookout for these updates to make sure that their target consumers are informed of the latest updates.
OnePlus Creators Take Pride in Fixing User Issues
The creators of OnePlus are no different as they pride themselves for valuing customer feedback. This actually isn’t new for this company as they have been quite open to their users’ requests and feedback. In fact, they have previously checked something off from their user’s request list – the roll out of their ultra-fast face unlock feature on their older phones. The same thing goes for the Project Treble support on the OnePlus 5 and the OnePlus 5T. There are several other fixes that this company rolled out after listening from their users.
To add to that list, after receiving numerous requests on their Open Ears forum about OnePlus 5 and OnePlus 5T’s photo capability limitations, they want people to know that they are listening and that they can hear them loud and clear. OnePlus simply wants to tell their users, “We hear you!”
The company recently released the news that made their users gush with excitement. Their users were happy to hear that their previous phone models, the OnePlus 5 and the OnePlus 5T will get an upgrade: the Selfie Portrait Mode Feature. This news was initially heard in their latest Open Ears forum in India before it was broadcasted in official forums.
The Selfie Portrait Mode Feature
This feature was originally only available in the OnePlus 6. The portrait selfie mode feature came in as a software update, shortly after its launch. People went gaga over it, as this feature allowed its users to have the feel of using a wide aperture DSLR lens. This feature gave its users an ability to manipulate their photos and add more technical drama in their images. This update was welcomed by the public with open arms because it does not require dual front facing lens. It is quite similar and comparable to the Google Camera app on the Google Pixel 2, which is purely software-based and downloadable, making it very accessible.
It is interesting to see how this would play out with OnePlus5 and OnePlus 5T’s 16MP front cameras. Most users and gadget enthusiasts will probably find this as a very appealing feature, especially since OnePlus phones aren’t exactly known for their outstanding photo-taking abilities. Now this feature definitely amps up these phones’ photo prowess.
There is no exact release date yet from the creators of OnePlus, but it is safe to assume that porting this feature wouldn’t take too long. As this feature is completely software-based like what they have with the OnePlus 6, porting this feature to their previous models doesn’t seem too far fetched or too impossible. In the meantime, stay tuned and keep your fingers crossed as we anticipate the official release date of this upgrade.
