Oxygen 9.0

OnePlus keeps its promise and delivers the update to Android 9 Pie on September 21, 2018. With this major update to Android Pie, the manufacturer compares its own oxygen version number to that of Android. In addition to the features already known from Android 9.0, such as the  intelligent battery  , OnePlus has also integrated numerous small but effective personalization methods.  

OxygenOS 5.1.9 brings a major camera update

The update to OxygenOS 5.1.9 brings some improvements to the camera. We tried whether the camera got visibly better:

OxygenOS 5.1.7 update closes security hole

A few days after the vulnerability in the boot loader of the OnePlus 6 became known , the manufacturer now closes the critical vulnerability. The update is just under 68 MB and everyone who has a OnePlus 6 should install it on their smartphone as soon as possible. 

In addition to fixing the vulnerability, OnePlus also states that the problem with the timed Do Not Distrub function has been fixed.

OxygenOS 5.1.6 Update brings portrait mode for the front camera 

The software update for the OnePlus 6 brings OxygenOS to version 5.1.6 and is around 220 MB in size. As the most important innovation, OnePlus will add portrait mode for the front camera. If you select this mode, you can now use the chic depth of field effects with the front camera. At first glance, pictures taken in this way don’t look that bad, but since they are software-generated, smaller artifacts are preserved. In addition, due to the emulation via software, it is not possible to save one without the bokeh effect in addition to the portrait photo as with the portrait mode of the dual main camera.

Another important feature that OnePlus fans in particular have asked for is the return of the battery status display in percent. Instead of the battery symbol or a round battery level indicator, the status of the energy cell can now also be displayed in percent. This update does not yet contain a fix for the boot loader problem.
