OnePlus is rolling out the much-awaited Android Pie to their 2018 flagship the OnePlus 6, effectively making it the only non-Google phone (barring Essential) to get Android Pie. The device had an open beta going on for a while, and it was only a matter of time before a final release was rolled out. It gets the latest UI changes, battery improvements, as well as some other OxygenOS stuff like accent colour customization and Gaming Mode 3.0. Let’s take a look at what this update has to offer:

  • Updated system to Android 9.0 Pie
    • Brand new UI for Android Pie
    • New adaptive battery support
    • New Android Pie gesture navigation
    • Updated Android security patch to 2018.9
    • Other new features and system improvements
  • Do Not Disturb mode
    • New Do Not Disturb (DND) mode with adjustable settings
  • New Gaming mode 3.0
    • Added text notification mode
    • Added notification for 3rd party calls
  • Accent color
    • Supported accent color customization

The OxygenOS version number jumped quite a bit. OnePlus says that going forward, it will match the Android version number. This likely means that the next patch will likely be v9.0. It weighs in at a hefty 1.5GB and brings the September security patch with it. If you have a OnePlus 6 you can manually check for the update by hitting Settings > System Updates > Check for updates.

The OTA will have a staged rollout. The OTA will be received by a limited number of users today and will have a broader rollout in a few days after making sure there are no critical bugs. The usual method to circumvent it by using VPN  build might not work as the rollout Is not based on regions but is randomly pushed out to a limited number of devices.
