A number users of the OnePlus 6 device reported last month that they were having display flickering issues on their handset, especially in bright sunlight after the OxygenOS 5.1.8 update was installed. OnePlus acknowledged the issue a few days later and said that a new update would be rolled out soon to fix this issue. Staying true to its word, the Chinese company has now rolled out a fix in the form of an OxygenOS update that also brings an improved HDR mode along with some bug fixes and stability improvements.
The OxygenOS 5.1.11 update has been rolled out in the form of an OTA and users can check for the update manually by heading to Settings> System Updates. Apart from the display flickering and improved HDR mode in the default camera app, the update also includes a slew of bug fixes and stability improvements for WiFi connections. It also brings the ability to confirm the PIN without tapping the check mark sign. Users can change this setting by heading to Settings> Security and Lock> PIN.
OnePlus has stated that the new update will be a staged rollout so all the users will not receive it at once. Some users may have to wait for a few days to receive the update on their OnePlus 6 device.
