As promised, OnePlus is now rolling out Android 10 update to the OnePlus 6 and 6T smartphones which were released in 2018. At the OnePlus 7T Pro launch event last month, OnePlus promised that it would roll out Android 10 update to OnePlus 6 series by the end of October. Notably, OnePlus already updated the OnePlus 7 series to Android 10, and now, it’s time for the OnePlus 6 and 6T smartphones. OnePlus says both the smartphones from 2018 will get OxygenOS 10.0 update, similar to the OnePlus 7 and 7T series.

OxygenOS 10.0 for OnePlus 6 Series: What’s New?

There are a lot of new features added by OnePlus to both the smartphones. Firstly, the overall system has been upgraded to Android along with OxygenOS’ new UI design. As you might be aware of by now, Google released enhanced location permissions for privacy with Android 10 and the same has been implemented by OnePlus as well. Android 10’s revamped gestural navigation also makes into the OnePlus 6 and 6T smartphones. Older OnePlus phones like the OnePlus 7 and 7 Pro retained OxygenOS gestures, but the newly launched OnePlus 7T and 7T Pro devices only offer gestural navigation of Android 10.

OnePlus also confirmed that a new customisation feature had been added in Settings app allowing users to choose icon shapes, font and so on. There are also general bug fixes and improvements to enhance the overall user experience.

OnePlus also added Game Space to the OnePlus 6 and 6T smartphones with the OxygenOS 10.0 update. Game Space feature brings all the favourite games in one place for easier access and better gaming experience.

Furthermore, the update also brings Contextual Display which shows intelligent info based on specific times, locations and events for Ambient Display. Lastly, OnePlus Messages app now has the ability to block spam by keywords for Message.

The Chinese company also says the Hide Notch (display cutout) option is currently not available on this version. For the unaware, the OnePlus 6 features a traditional notch whereas the OnePlus 6T has the teardrop notch on top of the display that houses the selfie camera.

OxygenOS 10.0 for OnePlus 6 Series: When Will You Receive it?

Similar to every other update rollout from the house of OnePlus, the OxygenOS 10.0 for OnePlus 6 series is also a staged one. The OTA update will reach only a limited number of users today and will have a broader rollout in a few days. The reason behind the staged rollout is the company makes sure there are no critical bugs. It will take feedback from the users who received the update in the first batch.

“Using VPN to download this build might not work as the rollout Is not based on regions and is randomly pushed out to a limited number of devices,” says OnePlus.

A lot of OnePlus smartphone users connect to Germany server through a VPN app to receive the OTA update right away. But OnePlus says the trick may not work. Alternatively, users can download the Oxygen Update app from Google Play Store to check for the OxygenOS 10.0 update for OnePlus 6 and 6T smartphones.

Camera is still pretty ordinary in front of Pixel 3A/Huawei P30 Pro/Huawei Mate 30 Pro/S10+/Google Pixel 3 XL/Google Pixel 4XL/Galaxy Note 10+. I hope Samsung GALAXY s10 Lite kills One Plus 7T and One Plus 7T pro.

Definitely they need to improve on camera. That’s the one and only main drawback with such a stupendous OS and HW. Otherwise its always going to remain a below par phone no matter how good the specs are.
