The recently launched OnePlus 6 flagship device from OnePlus has reportedly started receiving a new update that takes the device to the latest version of HydrogenOS in China. The update that is currently available over the air (OTA) brings two new features to the smartphone. These changes are the Selfie Portrait Mode and the Battery Percentage Indicator on the status bar.
OnePlus 6 had earlier promised that it would bring some new features to its latest flagship devices after its launch. It is also one of those companies that are known to provide the latest software updates to its flagship devices on a timely basis.
Coming to the Selfie Portrait Mode, the OnePlus 6 features a dual rear camera setup that is capable of capturing portrait shots with bokeh effect. However, it does not feature a dual camera setup on the front panel and hence lacks this ability. To resolve this issue, the company had announced during the launch of the smartphone in May that it would bring out a software update to roll out the Selfie Portrait Mode. Now, it seems that the company is delivering on that promise.
Another notable addition is the Battery Percentage Indicator on the status bar of the OnePlus 6. The company had reportedly disabled this feature due to the shortage of space on the front display panel on account of the display notch. This feature was however available on all earlier launched devices from OnePlus. The inclusion of this feature will enable the users to see the exact battery percentage instead of the battery shaped graphics indicator.
In addition to these features, the new update also brings some bug fixes and general security updates. It also brings game optimization settings that will improve the overall gaming experience of the user. Since the update has been rolled out in China, it can be expected that it will be rolled out to the global variants of the OnePlus 6 shortly. We will keep you updated once we get any information in this regard.
