OnePlus 7 Pro has become one of the best smartphones launched in 2019. It competes against premium handsets like Samsung Galaxy S10, iPhone XS and the Huawei P30 Pro. However, it is much lesser in price. It also comes with many new features which are specific only to the OnePlus 7 Pro, along with many other features. The company has put its first pop-up selfie camera, triple rear camera and a 90Hz display in the OnePlus 7 Pro. But no matter how advanced and premium it may be, it also comes with its own fair share of problems. Some early buyers of the smartphone are reporting phantom screen presses. This means that the apps are being open automatically and behave as if something on the screen has been tapped even when the user isn’t interacting with it.
According to the Android Police, the company is already aware of this problem of OnePlus 7 Pro and it says that it is treating it as a high priority. The company is working on the fix of this problem after successfully being able to reproduce the problem. But it is not known if the phantom presses are a hardware issue or a software issue of the OnePlus 7 Pro. If it is a software issue then it can be definitely fixed with an update, but if it’s a hardware issue then very little can be done about it.
The users of the OnePlus 7 Pro took to the official OnePlus forum to report the problem. According to the users, the OnePlus 7 Pro’s phantom presses are seen on apps such as CPU-Z. But other system applications such as Messages, Contacts and many other applications are also suffering by the phantom taps and it is proving to be irritating for the users. Since it is not one particular app that is receiving these phantom taps, the issue can’t be blamed on any specific application as well.
It should be noted that this problem on the OnePlus 7 Pro doesn’t seem to be universal. Although the company hasn’t as yet released a software update with the fix for this problem, it may release an update in the coming days.
