OnePlus 6 firmware download: Android 9 Pie stable update available

OnePlus 6 smartphone

In the current state of affairs of the Android OEM market, you can either choose to blend into the crowd with a pure Android experience that is similar to Google or create your very own user interface like Samsung has. However, certain brands have not only maintained a clean pure Android UI, but added their own elements to make their devices stand out from the crowd, and OnePlus is one such brand.

With the release of OnePlus 6, the brand has promised not just Android 8.1 Oreo right out of the box, but the support for Android P developer preview (features) as well. Apart from this, OnePlus runs its very own OxygenOS Beta program, and although the company does give out OTAs for the latest updates available, you can now get the mirrored files that are available for downloading right now.
