The OnePlus 6T has just been launched in India, with pricing starting at Rs 37,999 for the 6GB RAM/128GB storage option, and going up to Rs 45,999. And although the phone doesn’t go on sale till November 1, the company is already pushing out a software update early on. We can confirm that we have received the OxygenOS 9.0.4 update already.
Based on Android 9 Pie, the OxygenOS 9.0.4 update brings a few key changes in terms of features and software tweaks for the phone. According to the changelog for the update, there are improvements to screen unlock, optimized standby power consumption, improvements to ‘Nightscape’ for better low-light photography, and the addition of studio lighting for portrait shots. Another notable change is the November 2018 Android security patch, which interestingly is rolling out a day earlier than the start of November.
OnePlus is also rolling out similar features on the latest Open Beta version for the OnePlus 6. Open Beta 6 for the previous flagship from OnePlus will receive many of these features, including the popular Nightscape mode, which has been present on the OnePlus 6T out-of-the-box. And a relatively small change to the UI is the different ‘About Phone’ screen. The screen now shows a picture of the phone, along with well-positioned information on the software, status, build number and more.
