OnePlus has time and again proved to be an OEM worth opting for, by offering timely updates bringing new features. Recently, OnePlus released OxygenOS Beta 3 update for OnePlus 7T that brought the April 2020 security patch.

Speaking of features added by OnePlus, a recent unintended feature in OnePlus 8 Pro has become the talk of the town. Recently, it has been discovered that OnePlus 8 Pro’s camera can see through clothes and plastics. You can read more about the X-ray-like feature of OnePlus 8 Pro here.
