They are over three years old but the OnePlus 6, OnePlus 6T both received a new software update
No, this is not an update that contains any new features that you might have been longing for. In fact, the only items found on the official changelist are the November security update, bug fixes, and stability improvements. Yes, it is nothing to jump up and get excited about except to note that smartphones that are over three years old are receiving a software update.
If you own the OnePlus 6 or OnePlus 6T, you should soon receive the update to OxygenOS 184.108.40.206 although it first will be disseminated to a limited number of users. After OnePlus determines that there are no bugs caused by the update, it will be pushed out to remaining units via a broader rollout.
To save battery life, OnePlus is expected to use an LTPO backplane to allow for a variable refresh rate that drops down depending on the content on the screen. Emails and texts don’t require a 120Hz refresh rate although games, animations, and scrolling will be buttery smooth. Consumers might be able to select a model with either 8GB or 12GB of memory.
The camera array on the back of the phone is rumored to feature 50MP, 48MP, and 8MP sensors and will include a Macro camera for extreme closeups. We could see a 5000mAh battery charged with keeping the lights on (no pun intended) and while there is some talk of 125W fast charging, the OnePlus 10 Pro could end up with 50W charging instead.
Why OnePlus only recently had its new phones tested for water resistance
OnePlus has sure come a long way since its early days when buyers jonesing for a OnePlus handset had to have an invitation to buy one.
