The update will reach the three devices via the OTA method. Also, OnePlus 6 users will benefit more since the OxygenOS 5.1.9 update will bring some additional improvements in the camera of the phone which the OnePlus 5 and OnePlus 5T users will miss.

They can use the camera to: scan QR codes and use the image recognition tool to get more information about things like books, buildings, and works of art, by simply tapping on it.”
