OnePlus 6 users have increasingly complained of flickering displays when they use their phones outdoor. In a blogpost on OnePlus Forum, the company has acknowledged the issue, and said that the upcoming OTA upgrade will resolve the problem. In addition, those owning the OnePlus 6 can also expect the August Android security patch alongside.
Many OnePlus 6 devices appear to have a display problem in bright outdoors. As per complaints registered by users across platforms, the problem occurs if one tries to use the phone on a sunny day, while keeping the display on adaptive brightness mode.

This flickering does not appear to affect the phone’s functioning, but the problem was not resolved, despite the OxygenOS 5.1.8 and 5.1.9 updates. According to the company’s blogpost, the update for the issue is “to be released very soon”.
