OnePlus 6 is now receiving OxygenOS 9.0 stable update which is based on new Android 9.0 Pie. Just weeks back, we saw first Open Beta update with Android Pie pop up and now, there is a complete public build available as well. If you didn’t participate in testing, new OxygenOS 9.0 is a major step up, in terms of performance and features. Starting from UI, it has been completely revamped. Further, there is a new and improved Gaming Mode 3.0 which is there to help for better game-play experience. That’s not all, as being based on Android 9.0, this update also comes with support for gesture navigation. Being a public build, the roll-out has started but it is staged. If you haven’t received OxygenOS 9.0 update on your OnePlus 6, read ahead to download complete ZIP file manually.
From now on, OnePlus has decided that all further OxygenOS releases will be numbered to represent the Android revision they are based on. As Android 9.0 Pie is the target revision for this update, it is named as OxygenOS 9.0. To have latest update running on your OnePlus 6, you can download the complete update file manually from ahead and flash it through stock recovery — no need for TWRP as the file is signed by OnePlus. Keep in mind, flashing the package ahead will initiate a factory reset so do create a backup before-hand.
This is a major upgrade for the OnePlus 6, in fact its the first ever Android upgrade for it. Users should expect loads of new changes and improvements. For a detailed run-down, continue reading.
