Recently, we reported that some users of OnePlus 6 have been complaining about the screen flickering issue on the phone under direct bright sunlight. Users reported that when the adaptive brightness is enabled and the phone is exposed to sunlight, even the slight movements by the user kicks off flickering as the phone shifts back and forth to different brightness levels.
Now, the company has started rolling out the new update that fixes the issue. As usual, the new update. OxygenOS 5.1.11, is a staged distribution so it’ll be available to limited users initially and if everything seems to be working fine, the update will be rolled out to everyone in the coming days.
The update, which is about 152MB and comes with a number of improvements and major fixes. Apart from the fix for the display flickering issue, it also comes with an optimized network connection and optimized stability for Wi-Fi connection.
Further, there’s also an option to confirm PIN code without tapping the checkmark button so just entering the correct pin code will instantly unlock the phone. This feature can be found in Settings > Security & lock > PIN.
With Android 9.0 Pie update coming soon, it’s unlikely that the company will release more updates aside from major bug fixes and will instead focus on rolling out Android Pie update as soon as it can.
