[Download links now available] OnePlus 6/6T camera crash, screen calibration, 5GHz hotspot fixes & more arrive with December patches

New updates are being added at the bottom of this story…….

Original story (published on January 23, 2020) follows:

OnePlus has updated all but OnePlus 5 and 5T to the latest OxygenOS 10 based on Android 10 operating system, at least when only eligible devices are put into consideration. The most recent to get the update are OnePlus 6 and 6T.

The 5 and 5T updates to Android 10 will be the third major OS for the duo, becoming the second pair in the company’s short history to do so. The first were the 3 and 3T, which debuted on Marshmallow and are currently on Pie.

OnePlus 3 & 3T received 3 major Android OS updates

On the other hand, OnePlus 6 and 6T owners are hopeful that this trend doesn’t end with their predecessors so that they get to enjoy Android 11 as well. Until then, though, there should be plenty of Android 10-based updates heading their way.

Matter of fact, OnePlus 6 and 6T already picked up their first post-Android 10 update that arrived as OxygenOS 10.3.0. The update, as expected, bundled a new security patch and a bunch of bug fixes and improvements.

Today, the pair is receiving another similar update as OxygenOS 10.3.1, improving the security patch level from the previous November to December 2019. Yes, not the latest version available, but still acceptable considering the devices already received Android 10.

The file size is 80MB and besides bumping the security patch level, you also get a series of bug fixes that include the screen calibration issue affecting some units since updating to Android 10.

Just installed it. Good news, everyone. It appears to have fixed the calibration issues from the previous OOS10 builds. At the very least, Natural/sRGB no longer look undersaturated. I haven’t tested all of the calibration options thoroughly yet, though.
