OnePlus 6, OnePlus 6T Finally Receiving Android 11-Based OxygenOS Update: What’s New

OnePlus has finally started rolling out Android 11-based Oxygen OS update on its old flagships OnePlus 6, and the OnePlus 6T. Both the smartphones were significant launches at their time as the duo debuted with a super sleek design and slim bezels, and dual rear cameras. Both phones debuted with Android 8 Oreo. The latest update means that the OnePlus 6 and 6T users can enjoy new features that include updated design and UI tweaks, game space, ambient display, and more. OnePlus says that the Android 11 update is rolling out in a staggered manner, meaning only a small percentage of users are receiving it currently.

OnePlus 6 and OnePlus 6T users will most likely get a notification on their smartphone when the Android 11-based OxygenOS 11 update is ready. However, they can check the availability manually by heading to Settings > System > System Updates > Download and install. In terms of features, users can enjoy a fresh new UI visual design that brings a “more comfortable experience” with various optimisations of details. OnePlus says that since this is a big Android update with multiple new features, the upgrade process might take longer than usual. There’s a newly added gaming tools box for convenient switches of Fnatic mode. Users can now choose three ways of notifications for a smooth gaming experience. There’s a “mis-touch” prevention feature and needs to be enabled manually. “Swipe down from the top of the screen, click and the notification bar will pop out,” OnePlus said on its community forum. The company has also added a shortcut for Dark Mode, and users can pull down the Quick Settings panel and find it. Readers can check out the full changelog down below:
