OnePlus may have hit a little snag with the initial rollout of Android 10 for the OnePlus 6 and 6T, but that hasn't stopped the company from pushing out a steady stream of updates for its phones. It was just last month the 6 and 6T received Open Beta 3 of OxygenOS, which brought back the option to hide the notch.
Now, OnePlus has just released OxygenOS Open Beta 4 based on Android 10 for the 6 and 6T. Unlike the last beta update, Beta 4 doesn't appear to have any major changes or new features. However, it does include a few improvements to the OxygenOS experience such as an enhanced Reading Mode with a "fresh new chromatic effect for a more immersive and comfortable reading experience." It also adds a new feature for increasing and decreasing the ringtone for incoming phone calls.
Along with these new improvements, Beta 4 brings along with it the December 2019 Android security patch. For a list of all the changes, you can check the release notes below. Note that it is the same for both the OnePlus 6 and 6T models.
- Optimized details for Emergency Rescue
- Added a feature to support reminders for privacy alerts
- Improved system stability and fixed general bugs
- Updated Android security patch to 2019.12
- Added ringtone increasing and decreasing features for incoming calls
- Fresh new chromatic effect for a more immersive and comfortable reading experience with smart color gamut and saturation adjustment (Settings-Display-Reading Mode-Turn on Reading Mode-Chromatic effect)
