OxygenOS 9.0.2 OTA brings Nightscape, Studio Lighting, and November Security patch to OnePlus 6

The OnePlus 6T launched on October 29th with its new gesture navigation system, the fancy Nightscape low-light imaging feature, Studio Lighting, as well as the improved UI for the About Phone section. Just like it promised, OnePlus is bringing these features and more to the OnePlus 6 via a stable software update.

Rolling out as an incremental update, the OxygenOS 9.0.2 for the OnePlus 6 also includes the November security patch. We’ve got the full changelog for you below:

System

  • Brand new navigation gestures
  • Improved UI for About phone
  • Optimized standby power consumption
  • Updated Android security patch to 2018.11
  • Added support to launch Google Assistant or other third party assistant app by holding the power button for 0.5 seconds
  • General bug fixes and improvements

Camera

  • Added Nightscape
  • Added Studio Lighting to enhance face contour

The update is going out via OTA in stages, so if you haven’t received the notification of its availability just yet, it is coming. For those that use the Oxygen Updater app to update to the latest firmware, it seems that the app can no longer download updates for your phone and there’s no word on when or if the issue will be rectified.

Bringing these new features from the OnePlus 6T to the older OnePlus 6 just days after the launch is an excellent move from OnePlus. All too often we see smartphone makers launch a new handset every six months only to see them leave the previous model behind regarding software development.
