Here is a clever mod that OnePlus 6 users can install to enable stereo audio / dual speakers on their smartphone. Apart from being a competitively priced smartphone, OnePlus 6 also has the advantage of a strong developer and enthusiast community behind it. This is also evident from the fact that the phone has only been around for a couple of months and yet there is this unique mod available that allows the front earpiece to output audio at a greater volume therefore yielding a stereo setup. For content consumption, single main speaker on the OnePlus 6 seems quite weak therefore, this Stereo Audio mod should vastly improve the overall experience.
To have Stereo speaker functionality, all you need to do is install the ahead linked Magisk Module. As it relies on root, and more specifically, Magisk, make sure you have rooted your OnePlus 6. If not, you can read our dedicated guide on how to root OnePlus 6 through Magisk. Once made sure, follow the detailed steps ahead to have Dual Speakers / Stereo Audio on your OnePlus 6.
