OnePlus 6 Receiving OxygenOS Update with Selfie Portraits
Jun 11, 2018, 7:27 AM by Eric M. Zeman
OnePlus has begun pushing OxygenOS 5.1.6 to its OnePlus 6 phone. The update contains a few new features, including Portrait Mode for the front camera, which enables bokeh-style selfies. The update also adds a preview for the Light Bokeh effect when using Portrait Mode on the rear camera. OxygenOS 5.1.6 also takes the time to fix bugs. For example, it fixes stability for dual SIM cards, enables VoLTE in India, improves call quality, improves ringer volume and quality, adds a percentage indicator to the battery, and optimizes power consumption. It also lets people schedule Do Not Disturb mode, and adds support for dual 4G connections when using dual SIM cards. OxygenOS 5.1.6 is free for OnePlus 6 owners to download and install.
The OnePlus 6 is here to convince you that no one needs a $700, $800, $900, or $1,000 smartphone. Heck, you don't even need a $600 smartphone.
The OnePlus 6 is the company's latest attempt to convince you that ultra-pricey flagships are unnecessary; why spend $800 to $1000 on a phone when you can get one that's nearly as good for just over $500? The 6 is an attractive metal-and-glass device that has the latest design from OnePlus, the latest specs from Qualcomm and others, and the latest Android software from Google.
