Chinese smartphone companies are known to be one of the slowest in terms of providing software updates. However, the situation has improved over time.
OnePlus is still updating its 3-year-old OnePlus 6 series smartphones. To recall, the OnePlus 6 series comprised the vanilla OnePlus 6 as well as the OnePlus 6T.
The previous update for the OnePlus 6 series came last month with the February security patch. Similarly, the new update brings the latest security patch. There is not much in the new update apart from that.
The new update will be released in batches. A selected number of OnePlus 6/6T users will be getting the update at first.
And if things go alright and there are no bugs then it will be available for more people. Do we recommend downloading the update manually? No, there are were few instances in the past where OnePlus rolled back the update due to bugs.
Android 11 is available on Pixel devices for around 8 months now. And even the OnePlus 6 series is eligible for Android 11 updates but there is no news of when the devices will get it.
Considering, the OnePlus 7 series received OxygenOS 11 update last month, we have to wait a bit more.
To recall, the OnePlus 6 series was released in 2018. The OnePlus 6 came out earlier with Snapdragon 845 chipset.
It came with an Optic AMOLED display and a 16MP dual camera setup. However, the smartphone had a traditional notched display. Later in late 2018, OnePlus released an updated version of the OnePlus 6.
The OnePlus 6 came with Android 8.1 (Oreo) out of the box. While the OnePlus 6T came with Android 9.0 (Pie). Even though the company is providing the latest security patches, the Android OS updated still suffers.

Well it's gonna be a downgrade from my current OnePlus 6, but at least I know it's working besides the screen, so just waiting on the parts to arrive and replace the screen and I'll have an actual phone that will work and not just be 50% working :/ pic.twitter.com/VJ6cGgPKvL— Maddox (@Maddoxkkm1) April 20, 2021
