Oil Painting Effect Fix for OnePlus 6 On the Way: OnePlus

OnePlus is apparently working on the fix for ‘oil painting effect’ that’s occurring on the images captured with the OnePlus 6. Several OnePlus 6 users are reporting an oil painting effect in their pictures. Most of the users are facing this issue while using the HDR mode, but some users are reporting the oil painting effect is appearing even on normal shots. OnePlus has confirmed this news to a customer who approached them regarding the issue. A user, going by the name, Santosh Vaza posted a screenshot on OnePlus Forums which shows that OnePlus is working on the fix and the same will be rolled out with the next OTA update. However, there was no timeline provided by the company for the rollout of the update though.

In the email conversation, the OnePlus support team staff member wrote as: “About oil painting issue, it will be optimised in next update, please verify it by that time. If the issue still persists, please let us know. It will be greatly appreciated if you can provide the original photos and logs at that time. Thanks in advance.”

This is the not the first OnePlus smartphone facing the issue as the other two smartphones- OnePlus 5 and OnePlus 5T also plagued with the same oil painting issue. However, the recent OxygenOS Open Beta update for the OnePlus 5 and 5T fixed this issue, according to the changelog issued by OnePlus. Users on OnePlus Forums are also commenting the same, but it seems like the issue is not yet solved completely. OnePlus might require some more tuning to solve the oil painting fully.

The OnePlus 5 and 5T received the fix through an Open Beta update, but there’s no Open Beta program available for the OnePlus 6 at the moment, so expect the company to roll out a stable version very soon.

OnePlus is known for timely software updates and recently introduced a new OnePlus Software Maintenance Schedule Programme, promising two years of major software updates and three years of security patch updates.

I am a Oneplus 6 user, I didn’t find any such issues to be honest , Neither oil painting nor battery drain (easily getting full day of heavy use including pubg with some juice left at night) as they say. I just followed basic steps like , updating to latest software as i recieved device and immediately factory resetting . And then calibrating the battery by discharge and full charge method for 3 cycles. Not only with oneplus but its my habit to do the same process in every device i ever used and never ever faced any issues other… Read more »
