Android 9.0 Pie-based OxygenOS 9.0 is the best treat for OnePlus 6 users

After vigorous testing, OnePlus has started rolling out its latest OxygenOS 9.0 based on Android 9.0 Pie for OnePlus 6 smartphones.

"With Android Pie platform update, the OnePlus 6 features the brand-new Android Pie UI, Android P gesture navigation, expanded accent colour customisations, among others", OnePlus added.

In addition, OnePlus is now naming OxygenOS updates to correspond with the version of Android that they contain. Since the last few weeks, OnePlus has been offering Android 9 Pie to OnePlus 6 users via Open Beta programme, but now, the company is rolling out a stable version. Talking about the changes we get with this update, this update brings support for a totally new UI and design. The agency also lists a few features enabled by the update, such as gesture navigation, an upgraded "do not disturb" mode with customizable settings, and a new "gaming mode 3.0". OnePlus has confirmed that the update will also be coming out to the OnePlus 5T, OnePlus 5, OnePlus 3T, and OnePlus 3 models. The update is 1.52 GB in size including the Security patch.

Japanese asteroid probe sends hopping rovers down to space rock’s surface
Once on the surface, the robots will hop around, jumping as high as 49 ft (15 m), and staying in the air as long as 15 minutes. The cautious announcement came after a similar JAXA probe in 2005 released a rover that failed to reach its target asteroid.

OnePlus 6 has already proven to be one of the worthiest phones money can buy in 2018.

Another interesting feature that Android Pie brings is Adaptive Brightness, which learns how you like to set the brightness in different settings, and does it for you. Moreover, you should charge the device up to 100 percent to avoid interruptions.

As usual, this update will come via OTA: it is therefore a "phased launch", which means that it will initially be implemented for a limited number of users, followed by a wider launch in the following days. "Using VPN to download this build might not work as the rollout Is not based on regions and is randomly pushed out to a limited number of devices", said Manu J, Staff Member, Beta Program and Developer Relations.
