Just over a month after Google officially released Android Pie, Chinese smartphone maker OnePlus has now started rolling out Android Pie-based OxygenOS for the OnePlus 6 smartphone.
The new OxygenOS 9.0 is OnePlus’ fork of Android which comes with many of the same improvements as stock Android, including a tweaked interface and gesture navigation. There is also a new adaptive battery feature which analyses your usage of apps and prevents them from draining the battery when you’re not likely to be using it.
With the new update, the company has also introduced Gaming Mode 3.0 which allows interference-free notifications for text messages and 3rd party calls. OnePlus is also bringing the latest security patch for September with the Android Pie update.
It’s good to see that OnePlus is rolling out the new Android update at such impressive speed. Most manufacturers takes at least a couple of months to release the new update, and majority of the smartphones do not receive the latest updates.
Google is attempting to fix the broken process of quickly rolling out the latest Android update with “Project Treble,” and the OnePlus 6 is a part of that project, which could explain OnePlus’ speed in issuing this latest update.
The company has also announced that it will eventually bring the Android Pie update to 2017’s OnePlus 5 and 5T as well as 2016’s OnePlus 3 and 3T.
