OnePlus has released an update for two of its 2021 smartphones: the OnePlus 9 and 9 Pro. The goal of this update is to resolve several issues, including the loss of 5G connection under certain conditions. The update is less than 80MB and does not include any new features.
Every year, rolling out a major Android update is a headache. But Android 12 seems to give even more difficulties than the previous versions. Even for its creator. Google’s Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro suffer from several bugs in Android 12. And updates make the situation worse than they improve it. Faulty 5G connection and intermittent. Inability to send SMS or make calls. Very slow fingerprint reader. Result: Google had to suspend the last update.

The same goes for competing brands. We reported in December the problems related to the One UI 4.0 update on the Galaxy Z Fold 3 and Z Flip 3. And at OnePlus, the OxygenOS update based on Android 12 was even suspended in mid-December before the massive influx of bugs reported by users who tried to install it. As for the Pixels, the connection to 5G was erratic, faulty animations and blocked facial recognition.
An update fixes the 5G of the OnePlus 9 and 9 Pro
Last weekend, OnePlus however announced the arrival of a new version of Oxygen OS, still based on Android 12. Its username is C.40. It is intended for the two “flagship killers” of 2021, the OnePlus 9 and 9 Pro. It is intended for all those who have installed the previous version on their smartphone. And it only weighs 70MB confirming its patched and non-functional status. Understand that it fixes bugs and does not bring any new functionality.
According to the message accompanying the update, OxygenOS C40 fixes two issues. First of all the inability to connect in 5G under certain conditions. Then a bug that block system update. This update has been rolling out since December 31, 2021 and will arrive gradually. Note that there is no version for Europe yet. But some users claim to have installed the international version. The easiest way is to wait for the notification which will appear when the update adapted to your device is available.
