It has also fixed the ARCore load failure issue and improved system stability. Wi-Fi stability and performance has been improved, so has the stability for mobile networks. Indian users can now also get the Red Cable Club membership card as well.

On top of all the features and improvements, the OxygenOS update brings the July 2020 security patch and updates the GMS package to May 2020.
