Both phones will receive the June 2019 Android security patch as well as a feature borrowed from the OnePlus 7 Pro: a native screen recorder. You could previously record your screen with any number of third-party applications, but now you can do it natively within Oxygen OS.
Check out the full changelog below:
- Updated Android security patch to 2019.6
- Improved screen rotation
- Added Screen recorder feature (Quick Settings – Screen Recorder)
- Support VoLTE/VoWiFi for Telia Denmark
The updates will be rolling out in stages so they may take a few days to reach you. Head to Settings > System > System updates to see if the update is available on your handset.
Previous coverage: Welcome to the OnePlus 6 and OnePlus 6T Android update hub. Here, you’ll find everything you need to know about the latest OnePlus 6 and 6T updates, including their current versions, and when future updates are likely to arrive. Note the OnePlus 6 and 6T often receive updates at the same time.
OnePlus 6 and 6T update
- Current stable version: Android 9 Pie
- When will the OnePlus 6 and 6T get Android Q? September 2019 – November 2019 (estimated)
The OnePlus 6T launched towards the end of 2018 with the latest version of Android, Android 9 Pie. It’s expected to receive at least two major Android updates in the future.
Based on OnePlus’ recent updates, and the fact that the OnePlus 6T is a certified Android Q beta device, the phone is likely to receive the final version of Android Q shortly after it’s released. Google is expected to release Android Q sometime around this August.
The OnePlus 6 arrived with Android Oreo but was updated to Android Pie within six weeks of it being released. As the OnePlus 5 and 5T took around three months to receive the Pie update, it could take around the same time for Android Q to arrive on the OnePlus 6 this year.
We’ll let you know when we have more information on the OnePlus 6 and 6T’s update status.
