OxygenOS 4.0.2 Update Fixes Proximity Sensor Bug During Calls in OnePlus 3T and OnePlus 3

OxygenOS is the Operating System on which the OnePlus smartphones run. With the growing popularity of the OnePlus smartphones, the OS too, is growing stronger than ever before. A new update is now rolling out for the users of the OnePlus 3 and OnePlus 3T smartphones, upgrading their OS to OxygenOS 4.0.2. Following this update many improvements are coming out. Most importantly, the proximity sensor bug is being fixed.

This OnePlus 3 and OnePlus 3T proximity sensor bug has been bothering a large number of users. What this does is, that the proximity sensor randomly gets turned off while the users are on a call. This means that the display of the phone might remain turned on when the user is on a call.

Now figure this – you are on a call but your display is on. The phone touches your ear, and your ear ends up performing actions on your screen. This could result in calls ending abruptly, or the microphone getting muted out randomly, causing inconvenience while on a call. However, the OxygenOS 4.0.2 update finally fixes this problem.

The OxygenOS 4.0.2 update follows the OxygenOS 4.0.0 update – which brought the Android Nougat OS to the OnePlus users. OnePlus 3 and OnePlus 3T users got the update on new years’ eve, and OnePlus did deliver as promised. The update was out before the year ended. It was followed by the OnePlus 4.0.1 hotfix update last week, and now the new, OxygenOS 4.0.2 update is rolling out.

The APN settings have been updated for both the devices for select carriers. In addition to that, another bug that was causing major issues with downloading apps via the Google Play Store has been fixed.  The OxygenOS 4.0.2 update fixes the major bug of the proximity sensor issue. However, the company has noted that even after upgrading to OxygenOS 4.0.2, the Wi-Fi connectivity might still be a little dodgy.
