The latest software update of the OxygenOS 12 (C.44) brought a very long list of optimizations, new official functions and the January security patches on OnePlus 9 Pro and OnePlus 9, but, to the delight of many users, it has also made love re-bloom with the GCam.
For those who missed the “previous episodes”, it is enough to know that OnePlus 9 (here is our review) e OnePlus 9 Pro (here is our review) had started receiving the major update to the OxygenOS 12 based on Android 12 last December.
In the midst of so many welcome news, however, OnePlus had also brought quite a few bugs on its smartphones and above all, for what interests us here, it had locked a key function for those who had chosen the GCam as their default app for photos and videos: it had denied the Google Camera ports access to the secondary cameras of smartphones. In light of this limitation, users of OnePlus 9 and 9 Pro were therefore prevented from taking advantage of the ultra-wide-angle camera and telephoto lens with the GCam.
Users had not been slow to complain to the manufacturer about this restriction, so much so that OnePlus by return of post he had promised its removal with a subsequent update of the OxygenOS 12. Well, although there was no talk of timing at that time, the Chinese manufacturer had his word: already with the update to the OxygenOS 12 version C.44 we told you about in recent days, the cameras of OnePlus 9 and OnePlus 9 Pro are back fully exploitable even with the GCam. Here are some screenshots that prove it.
Actually the screenshots come from a OnePlus 9 Pro, but there is no reason to doubt that the problem has also been solved on the OnePlus 9 model. Do you own one of these smartphones? At this link you can find the best ports.
