OnePlus has just announced a new update for it’s latest flagship smartphone in the market, the OnePlus 6T. This new update brings the version of OxygenOS to version 9.0.6. Manu J, the OnePlus staff member who is in charge of the Open Beta program and developer relations posted a dedicated post on the official OnePlus forums. According to the details on the post, the new update comes with improvements in a number of aspects of the ROM ranging from the system, communication, third-party apps to the camera department of the device.
Taking a closer look at the changelog, OxygenOS 9.0.6 for OnePlus 6T improves the device unlocking experience while optimizing the standby power consumption of the device. Like almost all the software updates, this one also comes with a number of bug fixes and improvements. The update fixes problems while adding an APN on the Verizon network in the United States.
OnePlus has also fixed another issue where Google Play Store was not giving any notifications to the device. Last, but probably the most significant part of this update, is optimizations to the image processing. This likely means that the device improves the camera quality, but the degree of improvements is yet to be checked.

Similar to other updates in the past, this update will be rolling out in a staged manner. What that means is that OnePlus will only roll out the device to a small number of devices in the beginning and monitor for any bugs that may have slipped through the development of the update.
In case of any critical bugs, the company can easily stop the update while avoiding rolling out the bugged software update to almost all OnePlus 6T devices in the market. Interested users who want to get their hands on the update early can use a VPN service and set the location to Germany or Canada to get the update early or even manually download it from the OnePlus forums. This new update comes days after the company launched the Open Beta version 7 for the OnePlus 6 users.
