OnePlus rolls out Open Beta 8 and OxygenOS 9.0.7 updates for the OnePlus 6 and 6T

Both the OxygenOS updates will be rolled out in stages, so your device may not get it right away.

OnePlus introduced a Video Enhancer mode and the OnePlus Roaming service with its OxygenOS Open Beta 7 update for the OnePlus 6 back in November.

The Chinese company has now begun rolling out the Open Beta 8 update which brings a bunch of interesting additions to the OnePlus 6.

OxygenOS Open Beta 8 for the OP6 brings improvements to slow motion, a dedicated audio tuner for USB Type-C and Bluetooth earphones as well as other improvements in the UI. The OnePlus 6 does feature a 3.5 mm headphone jack unlike the new 6T but the new audio tuner is geared only towards USB Type-C and Bluetooth earphones. OnePlus claims that the new tuner will enable users to tweak audio specifically for their earphones/headphones without having to alter the audio profile across the system.

Open Beta 8 also includes the option of enabling systemwide dark mode in the Shelf dashboard. OnePlus did not dive into specifics of improvements in the slow-motion video but the overall quality of content shot at 480 fps 720p should look better.

And here is the full changelog for OxygenOS Open Beta 8 on the OnePlus 6, courtesy the OnePlus forum:


  • Audio tuner for Type-C and Bluetooth earphones
  • About Phone UI improvements


  • Improved UI for Call History


  • Supported dark theme for Dashboard in Shelf


  • Improved slow motion

OnePlus also announced OxygenOS 9.0.7 for the OnePlus 6T simultaneously which brings a bunch of stability related improvements along with the audio tuner and the improvement to slow motion video.
