OnePlus 6/6T gets DC Dimming and More via OxygenOS beta 23/15

The latest Oxygen OS Open beta updates 23 and 15 are now rolling out for OnePlus 6 and OnePlus 6T respectively. The build brings the new enhanced Screen recorder settings, DC Dimming feature, and some further OS tweaks. The full changelog is as follows

System

OnePlus 8T Pricing Leak Reveals That the Phone Will Cost €599 for the Base Model

  • General bug fixes and stability improvements

Screen Recorder

  • Hide floating widget while recording
  • More options added for resolution, fps, and bit rate

OnePlus Laboratory

  • Brand new UI design
  • Added DC dimming feature

Weather

  • Added popular cities for search suggestions

The other changes are mostly cosmetic and minor QoL improvements. DC Dimming is making its way to an increasing number of devices that come with an AMOLED panel. It is helpful for people to display flicker at low brightness levels and helps them by regulating the amount of DC current that flows through the circuit, which in turn reduces the flicker on the screen. The update is available to all users on the beta channel and should arrive OTA. If you're on a stable build of the OS, you'll need to completely wipe your phone and flash the appropriate beta build on your device.
