The first OnePlus 6 update brings with it the ability to shoot videos in slow motion along with the ability to hide the notch.

The phone is also expected to receive the Android P beta in the coming days. 

In our review of the OnePlus 6 we said, “The OnePlus 6 is built for speed from the ground up. The smartphone has the history of being a flagship killer, but despite the top-of-the-class hardware, the compromises in OnePlus phones have also remained consistent, so much so, that it is now acts as a deterrent to buy this over an expensive flagship. The OnePlus 6 is still just as fast, even more beautiful but has the same flaws as last time.”
