The OnePlus 6T was recently been released, however, this can’t stop the company from already offering a good software support for the handset. Today, the brand-new smartphone is receiving a second post-launch update to address some issues and improve the handset experience.
The changelog for this update is rather vague since the company describes it as an OTA update with “general bug fixes and improvement”, as well as unspecified “improvements for Screen Unlock.” Of course, owners and future owners will be happy to see that the company’s in-display fingerprint scanner will be further improved with this update. After all, the OnePlus 6T is one of the few handsets offering this technology in Western markets for a not so expensive price.
Just like Huawei, OnePlus decided to choose the same optical solution for the fingerprint scanner. It isn’t so fast and accurate, like Qualcomm’s Ultrasonic technology is promising to be, however, the US supplier couldn’t deliver this new tech in time, thus delaying the in-display scanner arrival on mainstream flagships for the next year. Despite not having the greatest of solutions, OnePlus is doing its best to improve the Screen Unlock feature.
The OxygenOS 9.0.5 rollout is gradual, so it may take some days to arrive for all brand new OnePlus 6T. Despite this, the company should start a broader release of this update until the end of this week. Do you own a OnePlus 6T? Let us know if you have been already contemplated by this update.
