Last week OnePlus released the stable Oxygen OS 10 firmware update for the OnePlus 6 and 6T devices. However, due to a fingerprint bug, the Android 10 update was immediately paused for the OnePlus 6 device. So we only had the Android 10 update for OnePlus 6T under stable channel. But hold on, there is some good news. Stable Android 10 for OnePlus 6 is now available for download based on Oxygen OS 10 across the globe.
