Software updates are one of the significant disgraces to the Android Operating System. That said, companies like OnePlus may change the scenario shortly. A few months ago OnePlus announced that its 2016 flagship offerings, i.e. the OnePlus 3 and the OnePlus 3T will skip Android 8.0 (Oreo), but will directly receive an update to Android 9.0 Pie.
Well, this time around, OnePlus has officially started rolling out Android 9.0 Pie software update to OnePlus 6 users.
Initially, OnePlus will roll-out the Android 9.0 Pie software update to a limited number of OnePlus 6 devices. Even though the software isn’t in the beta stage but still OnePlus want’s the software experience to be perfect and well optimized. So OnePlus has decided to test the software first before rolling-out to masses. OnePlus want’s users to report any bug issue on the forums.
“Using VPN to download this build might not work as the rollout is not based on regions and is randomly pushed out to a limited number of devices,” said OnePlus on its website.
“Your feedback is appreciated. We may not always be able to respond to every comment in the forums, but please be assured that we take your comments and feedback seriously,” it added. Testing the software multiple times is necessary to ensure that the software utilizes the hardware to its full potential.
