OnePlus, soon after the release of its new phone, the OnePlus 6T has announced the OxygenOS 9.0.2 update for OnePlus 6 users. This new update for the previous OnePlus phone brings a lot of features on board which we get to see on the OnePlus 6T. This release has closely followed the release of the OxygenOS Open Beta 6 for the OnePlus 6, and it brings on new features on board like the Nightscape mode, Studio Lighting and the new navigation gesture system. The OxygenOS 9.0.2 also brings the November Security patch for the OnePlus 6 users.
Nightscape and Studio Lighting Now on OnePlus 6
Like we mentioned above, one of the highlights of the OxygenOS 9.0.2 for the OnePlus 6 is the Nightscape mode and Studio Lighting features. The Nightscape mode has been crafted by the OEM to help users in snapping low-light pictures with more clarity, less noise, and overall better colour reproduction. This feature will also help the users in getting a more dynamic range for their pictures as opposed to the normal camera app. The Studio Lighting mode differs a bit, and it does the job of getting better lighting for portrait shots by detecting faces. The feature is much similar to the portrait lighting feature on the iPhones. It’s noteworthy that the new OnePlus 6T comes pre-loaded with these features. Also, since both these phones come with identical camera configuration, the experience with these features is also bound to be similar.
OxygenOS 9.0.2 to be Rolled Out in Phases
Another major highlight of the new OxygenOS 9.0.2 update is the new navigation gesture system which makes its way to the OnePlus 6T by default. The interface of the About phone section has also been revamped to make it look better, and the standby power consumption has also been optimised for saving the battery. Users of OnePlus 6 will now also be able to launch the Google Assistant by just holding the power button for 0.5 seconds. This is also similar to Apple, which allows the users to fire up Siri by pressing the power button. The update also brings the November security patch and a handful of back-end improvements and optimisations.
Since this a step up by OnePlus for the OnePlus 6 users, the OxygenOS 9.0.2 update will initially be rolled out to limited users, following which a broader rollout will be conducted “after making sure there are no critical bugs”, a methodology which company has previously followed for its other update rollouts as well.
Users of OnePlus 6 can check these updates manually by going to Settings > System updates. The Chinese OEM manufacturer has also rolled out the OxygenOS 9.0.4 for OnePlus 6T users which brings on the November Security Patch for the newly launched OnePlus 6T. Besides, there are also improvements to the Nightscape mode, along with the new Studio Lighting feature.
