A new update has started rolling out to the OnePlus Open, and it brings photo collages, camera improvements, and more. If that sounds familiar, that’s because a very similar update landed on the OnePlus 12 and OnePlus 11 not long ago.

A new update brings photo collages to the OnePlus Open, along with camera improvements

This update is marked as OxygenOS v14.0.0.600, and it’s coming to Indian variants of the OnePlus Open at the moment. The update will soon spread to other markets, and it will have the same changelog. The update itself weighs around 770MB, so it is recommended that you be connected to WiFi when you update.

This update brings the March 2024 Android security patch along with it. On top of that, it includes some new features, and also some improvements to the camera and more.

Let’s kick things off with some new features, though. This update brings photo collages to the OnePlus Open. You can now make collages from the phone’s default Photos app. It’s a pretty basic tool now, but it’s here.

‘Partial screenshot’ feature has been added too, and several others

The company also added a ‘Partial screenshot’ option to the Smart Sidebar, if you use it. You can now also hold down the volume down button in order to turn on the flashlight when the screen is off.

Settings app-specific volumes is now possible as well. This is great to have if you prefer the volume to be higher when you want the videos, listen to podcasts, or whatever else.

The volume bar’s design has been altered too, and the system stability in general has been improved. We also got some camera improvements with this update.

OnePlus now enables you to switch between more focal lengths by tapping the zoom buttons. You can now also use the ultrawide and telephoto cameras in XPAN mode. The update also increases shutter response and improves the snapshot experience. You can now also use the zoom wheel to switch between different zoom options when taking videos.
