A press release disseminated in Germany today by the PR firm employed by OnePlus says that the final version of Android 9 Pie is finally being made available to the OnePlus 6. Also, users will not be able to get the update, as OnePlus is randomly sending the update to the users.
Updated system to Android™ 9.0 Pie™. The best part is OnePlus also included its own gesture navigation interface which was introduced with the OnePlus 5T. The new update brings several improvements and new features with the new OxygenOS 9.0. OnePlus also confirmed the update will include features such as Adaptive Battery technology, which learns how you use your phone, so apps and services you rarely use aren't a battery drain and you can focus on the apps you care about. Gaming Mode has been improved to allow notifications for texts and calls. This update can be found by heading to the OnePlus 6's settings and scrolling down to the penultimate list item: System Updates. Moreover, many companies promise quick software rollouts, but OnePlus is really pushing the boundaries here to expedite the release timeline and offer support to oldest possible phones.
OnePlus rolling stable Android 9.0 Pie based OxygenOS 9.0 update for OnePlus 6
While this all sounds good in theory, it appears that the update has yet to reach any OnePlus 6 users. "We're looking forward to bringing Android P to the OnePlus 5/5T and OnePlus 3/3T, ensuring OnePlus users all over the world can continue to enjoy new features", added OnePlus.
If you don't see the OTA update (which will be called OxygenOS 9.0) on your OnePlus 6 yet, don't panic. Going by the strategy of the company, its seems that OnePlus will most likely discontinue the OnePlus 6 soon after the launch of the upcoming OnePlus 6T.
