OnePlus has started rolling out a new OxygenOS update to its 9-series smartphones, which launched last year. Relatively bulky, the latter contains interesting new features to improve the gaming and multitasking experience.
Do you have a OnePlus 9 or 9 Pro? If it hasn’t already, it will soon receive a major update. OnePlus has committed to rolling out the C.60 version of OxygenOS to its 9-series smartphones, released in 2021. As XDA Developers points out, the latter is quite large (1.57 GB in total), but that’s for good cause: it notably includes improvements for the floating window functionality, adds the HyperBoost (stabilizer of end-to-end framerate) and reduces the loading time of certain games, as well as their energy consumption, among other things.
Please note, however, that this update does not include the Android security patches of May 2022. They will be deployed separately on the OnePlus 9 and OnePlus 9 Pro.
A big update is coming to your OnePlus 9
Anyway, here’s the full detail of what’s inside OxygenOS C.60, as unveiled by screenshots shared on the OnePlus forums:
- You can now open up to 3 apps in floating windows at the same time in split-screen mode, and switch from floating window mode to split-screen mode.
- You can now use the Clock app in Quick Rewind.
- You can now open up to three phone windows on your PC.
- Adds stabilizer end-to-end framerate HyperBoost.
- Reduced in-game loadouts and power consumption (only for certain titles)
Note that this OxygenOS update is rolling out gradually. It is therefore available today to a handful of users and will be distributed on a larger scale in the coming days.
