OnePlus is rolling out the new OnePlus 6 Open Beta 2 which brings a plethora of new improvements to the concerned device. The latest OxygenOS software is based on Android Pie and improves the picture quality of the front-facing camera. It also optimizes the multitasking UI.
The OnePlus 6 Open beta 2 update also brings system optimization by improving the Wi-Fi connection, power consumption, and the Pocket mode. The OTP code verification interface also gets improvements and is now faster.
The current second Open beta is based on Android 9.0 Pie and is a follow-up to the OxygenOS Open Beta 1 which rolled a few days ago. The device is already on the September 2018 security patch which rolled in along with the first OxygenOS open beta. OnePlus 6 Open beta 2 is a beta version of the software, so it brings its share of glitches as well. Official sources cite that some third-party Apps may not work. Google Pay service is not working as well. Some users are also reporting that the face-unlock and fingerprint sensor is slow. However, we think in the next software versions these bugs will be fixed.
