The OnePlus 6 is now receiving a new OxygenOS OTA update which brings a slew of under the hood improvements to the OnePlus phone. The OxygenOS 9.0.3 update – which is based on Android Pie – bumps up the Android security patch level to December 2018, in addition to improving camera and connectivity parameters on the OnePlus 6.
OnePlus notes that much like any other OTA update, the OxygenOS 9.0.3 update will also be rolled out in a phased manner which means not every OnePlus 6 device will get it at the same time. OnePlus has also shared the detailed change-log of the new update for the OnePlus 6 on its official forum.
In addition to bumping up the Android security patch level – which is undeniably the most important aspect of the new update – the update version 9.0.3 brings some improvements to the device’s camera, particularly with respect to OnePlus’ in-house Nightscape tech. Nightscape is a new OnePlus feature that made its debut with the OnePlus 6T and recently made its way to older devices like the OnePlus 6. As the name suggests, Nightscape helps OnePlus users click brighter photos with more detail in low light scenarios. Nightscape is basically OnePlus’ take on Google’s Night Sight. The new update is said to improve Nightscape which invariably should result in even better low light photos. The new update also improves image processing in general and slow-motion performance.
Lastly, the OxygenOS 9.0.3 update improves Bluetooth and Wi-Fi stability on the OnePlus 6, according to OnePlus.
As is expected of any new software update, this one also brings general bug fixes to improve the overall stability of the OnePlus 6.
“With your help, we have been able to better optimize and improve several key areas. As always, this OTA will be incremental. The OTA will reach a small percentage of users today, and we'll begin a broader rollout in a few days,” OnePlus writes on its official forum.
OnePlus 6 users can expect the new update rolling out for their devices anytime now, and they can also manually check for the update by heading over to the settings menu.
