OnePlus 6

The OnePlus 6 is barely a month old and we’re now being treated to a feature-rich update of Oxygen OS today. The update bumps the version of the ROM to 5.1.6 and is similar to the Hydrogen OS update that was rolled out two days back. Still, there are some features specific to the global ROM. Below is the changelog’s highlights.

The most important addition, from the user’s standpoint, has to be portrait mode. Now, the front camera supports it. I’m actually quite surprised the feature didn’t arrive baked into the ROM. As for other goodies, now, you’ll be able to set battery percentage in the status bar which is a very more convenient than a symbolic bar.
