As we all always say, the biggest USP that users get about the OnePlus devices is the continuous update of software for the enhanced users as well as the security experience. Similar is the case with the newly launched device OnePlus 6T. The device has started receiving OxygenOS 9.0.6.
The new software update optimizes image processing on the latest OnePlus phone as well as improves its unlocking experience. The update also includes general bug fixes and improvements to enhance the overall user experience. It notably comes days after the OnePlus 6T received OxygenOS 9.0.5 that brought improvements for the in-display fingerprint sensor and some unspecified bug fixes. The Chinese company also recently launched the Thunder Purple variant of the OnePlus 6T that features a gradient finish.
Among other new features, OnePlus in a forum post highlights that the OxygenOS 9.0.6 update for the OnePlus 6T improves the unlocking experience. This suggests the company has enhanced the unlocking behavior through the built-in in-display fingerprint sensor that comes as one of the major selling points of the new flagship. The update also optimizes image processing on the OnePlus 6T. This could result in slightly better shots.
In addition to the new improvements, the latest OxygenOS update optimizes standby power consumption. Further, OnePlus has fixed issues that were occurring while adding an APN on Verizon network. There is also a fix for the bug that was restricting notifications from Google Play. Besides, the formal changelog shows the update brings a bunch of general bug fixes and performance improvements.
