New Open Beta update for OnePlus 6 and OnePlus 6T fixes low brightness problem, adds Caller ID and a lot more

Open Beta update

OnePlus is one of the quickest OEMs out there when it comes to rolling out new major Android updates as well as other bug fixes for their devices. The OnePlus 6 was part of the first few smartphones other than the Pixel devices to get the Android 9 Pie update.

The company seeds out beta updates through the OxygenOS Open Beta programme for a few users to try out and report bugs and issues before OnePlus makes the update available for the masses. If you’re on the OxygenOS Open Beta programme, then you would be glad to know that the OxygenOS Open Beta 2 for the OnePlus 6T and the OxygenOS Open Beta 10 for the OnePlus 6 is now available for users to download.

The new beta update from OnePlus brings along a host of new features and bug fixes as well. After major outcry regarding the low brightness issue, users can finally be relieved since the latest update brings along a fix for the low brightness issue. You could also check out the changelog for the update below.
