OnePlus 6 has become the first smartphone from the Chinese phone manufacturer to receive the final stable build of Google's latest Android 9.0 Pie version.

OnePlus announced today that it is rolling out Oxygen OS 9.0 to the OnePlus 6. OnePlus has also conformed that they will be bringing Android P update to the OnePlus 5/5T and OnePlus 3/3T for users to enjoy new features on their devices. The phone now supports beta version of the latest Android 9.0 that was made available few months ago. Talking about the changes we get with this update, this update brings support for a totally new UI and design.

Adaptive Battery will limit the amount of battery that is consumed by apps that are used less frequently than others. The rollout will be done in stages with the distribution of Android 9 picking up speed after OnePlus makes sure (via customer feedback) that there are no lingering issues with the software. According to the changelog posted by OnePlus, the update includes new Do Not Disturb (DND) mode with adjustable settings and a new Gaming Mode 3.0. Finally, the Android Security Patch has been updated to September 2018. OnePlus always does this staged rollout with a major software update because if users notice any major bugs, then the company will halt the broader rollout and fix the bugs, then releases the update again. Typically, the newest smartphones get updated before the older ones, and that actually comes down to Qualcomm, who needs to release the binaries for their chipsets to update these smartphones. Going forward, the firm has opted to give its updates a numerical value based on the numerical version of Android.

The update is now currently rolling out over-the-air (OTA) and will be distributed in waves. As the update is being sent out randomly to users and is not region specific, using a VPN to download the OS wouldn't be helpful.
