OxygenOS 9.0.2 for the OnePlus 6 adds Nightscape, Assistant shortcut, and more

Thursday, November 1st, 2018

The OnePlus 6T just went on sale today, but its sibling is also getting an update to celebrate. OxygenOS 9.0.2 features several things we've seen in the last couple Open Betas (including the one from earlier this week), including Nightscape, the Assistant power button shortcut, the November security patch, and others.

Here's the changelog for those of you who are interested:

  • System
    • Brand new navigation gestures
    • Improved UI for About phone
    • Optimized standby power consumption
    • Updated Android security patch to 2018.11
    • Added support to launch Google Assistant or other third party assistant app by holding the power button for 0.5 seconds
    • General bug fixes and improvements
  • Camera
    • Added Nightscape
    • Added Studio Lighting to enhance face contour

Some of these additions just appeared a few days ago in Open Beta 6 – such as the redesigned About Phone screen and new app-switching gesture – so good on OnePlus for getting them turned around so quickly for the stable branch.

One of the few software improvements on the recently-announced OnePlus 6T is 'Nightscape,' a low-light camera mode. While it probably won't be as impressive as the Pixel 3's crazy Night Sight feature, it's also coming to the company's previous flagship.

During the 6T launch event, OnePlus said that Nightscape would eventually arrive on the OP6 via a software update. We'll update this post with more details if/when we get them.

OnePlus has opened applications for the Closed Beta program for its latest flagship. This opportunity lets users test the new versions of OxygenOS before the general public and communicate directly with the software team to report bugs or offer suggestions. It's a bit more special than the Open Beta system that you see us write about so often.

There are three requirements to be accepted into the program:

  1. Own a OnePlus 6
  2. Be a regular, active OnePlus forums member
  3. Be willing to "constantly communicate" with the software team (on their Slack channel) about bugs, suggestions, etc.

Saturday, August 4th, 2018

In the last couple of weeks, I noticed my own OnePlus 6 was having a bit of trouble when I was outdoors. If I went to check missed messages or train schedules on a sunny day, I'd notice the display seemed to flicker spastically between two different brightness levels.
