This story is being continuously updated…. New updates are being added at the bottom…..

Original story (published on April 7) follows:

OnePlus’ claim to fame started as an enthusiast brand. And while it still is very much an enthusiast brand, the kind of brand recognition the company has managed to gunner over the past couple of years cannot be ignored. “Flagship-killer” title aside, the company is doing a lot of things right.

The OnePlus 6 and the OnePlus 6T are some of the company’s best selling devices. These devices from 2018 pack the very top-tier specs from the era and that makes the devices very relevant in the market even today. The vibrant developer community around it notwithstanding.

OnePlus 6

The OnePus 6 and the 6T have been pretty well updated in the past. Most recently, we saw the OnePlus 6 and 6T get updated to the February 2020 Android security patch level. This update packed more than just a little bump in the security patch level as it included a few bug fixes and system improvements, key among them being fixing the screen flickering bug that affected users while swiping up to unlock the device.

You might also recall that the two devices also recently bagged the OxygenOS Open Beta 5. This update rolled out sometime back in February and came with a few goodies including enabling VoWiFi for Jio. This update was still based on the February patch and tons of other bug fixes.

Well, it appears that OnePlus is rolling out the succeeding Open Beta 6. The OxygenOS Open Beta 6 update comes with the March Android security patch update. That is not all. This update also brings bugfix for Launcher crashes and blank screen among other things. Below is the changelog.


• Now unlock the LockBox without any problems in File Manage
• No more crashes in the Launcher withs apps in a full-screen display
• Got rid of blank screens while clearing up the background apps
• Updated Android security patch to 2020.03
