Moreover, a company suggested workaround for this issue was to “turn off the NFC toggle in the Quick Setting/Notification Bar.” As this fix did not work for most of the users or was temporary, they were expecting a bugfix patch for this issue.

Following this, OnePlus started rolling out a new update in China for the HydrogenOS powered OnePlus 7 Pro for fixing the ghost touch issue.

A day later, the global units of the device also were served with a new OxygenOS 9.5.7 update that brought in several bug fixes along with the fix for ghost touch (phantom touch).


But as per a new report by one of the OnePlus 7 Pro users on Reddit, this ghost touch issue is still prevailing in some of the units, even after a few bugfix updates and is troubling users till date.
