OnePlus 6T camera features come to OnePlus 6 with latest Open Beta update

Chinese smartphone brand OnePlus unveiled the OnePlus 6T two days. While the 6T does come with a new design as compared to OnePlus 6, its camera setup remains unchanged from the OnePlus 6. However, the OnePlus 6T does come with some new camera features that are now available for OnePlus 6 as well.


The OnePlus 6T comes with a feature called Nightscape for better low-light photography. At the time of launch, OnePlus said that OnePlus 6T’s Nightscape would come to OnePlus 6, and, just two days later, OnePlus has released OxygenOS Open Beta 6 update that brings Nightscape to OnePlus 6.

In addition to Nightscape, OxygenOS Open Beta 6 update also brings in the Studio Lighting feature which is also a OnePlus 6T camera feature. Apart from that, the Open Beta update also comes with new navigation gestures as well Android security patch for the month of November. It’s surprising to see OnePlus rolling out November security patch even when Google’s phones are still on October patch.

Here’s the entire changelog of OxygenOS Open Beta 6 update for OnePlus 6:

  • System
    • New navigation gestures
    • Improved UI for About phone
    • Updated Android security patch to 2018.11
    • Improvements for taking screenshot experience
  • Launcher
    • New Google quick search box design
  • Camera
    • Added Nightscape and Studio Lighting
  •  Gallery
    • Gallery smoother and improved zooming gesture and magnification

Having said that, as this an Open Beta update, it’s only rolled out to those OnePlus 6 units that are already flashed with a previous Beta build. If you are running official build of OxygenOS on your OnePlus 6, you won’t receive this update.
