OnePlus has prepared Android 10 open beta build for OnePlus 7 Pro. The open beta build not only brings new features from Android 10, but is also a much requested feature by OnePlus users. The OnePlus 7 Pro ₹ 48,999 is now capable of recording video with its wide-angle and telephoto cameras whereas it was previously limited to primary sensors. That’s not all, some other camera modes also work with the other two camera sensors.
OnePlus introduced the ability to record video using wide-angle and telephoto cameras on the OnePlus 7 Pro in the fifth developer preview. This will allow users to record video using a wide-angle or telephoto camera on a smartphone. However, it is important to note that these additional camera modes currently have a 30fps recording limit.
More camera options have also been added, particularly for portrait and nightscape. Users will now be able to use a wide-angle camera in Nightscape or can use a telephoto sensor to click on zoom-in mode for portraits. While these options were not available before and in portrait mode, OnePlus has rearranged the depth effect overlay and low-light warning to accommodate the new toggle. OnePlus has also reported an improvement in video stabilization when using the Super Steady option in video recording.
Camera modes are not the only improvements as OnePlus made a few more changes to Android 10. Google’s new gesture navigation requires users to swipe from the right or left side of the display for back action. This gesture interferes with a swipe gesture to open the hamburger menu in Android apps.
And now the feature has made its way to the open beta build for the device. As it is included in this open beta build, chances are high that the feature will make its way to the stable Android 10 build. OnePlus has “fixed” it in the open beta build. If you swipe on the bottom 75 percent of the display, it registers it as a back gesture while swiping on the top of the display opens the hamburger menu in apps.
OnePlus has strangely buried the dark theme in customization settings. To enable Dark Mode on OnePlus 7 Pro, you need to go to Settings> Customization and change the “Preset Theme” to “Nosed Dark”. The other option is to go to the “Tone” section and switch it to “Dark”. Conversely, dark mode can be enabled via a quick toggle on pixel mode.
In the Android 10 Open Beta build, the OnePlus 7 Pro also lacks the 2-button navigation layout that was available since Android Pie. While Google and Essential still offer this feature to their users, OnePlus has decided to remove it.
