OnePlus has started pushing out a new update for the OnePlus 6 and 6T. This time around, we're looking at an Android 10-based beta update. To be more specific, OxygenOS Open Beta 2 is now rolling out to the OnePlus 6 and 6T handsets.
This update brings various fixes to the table. First and foremost, it is worth saying that the fingerprint identification issue has been resolved here. This has been an issue in the Open Beta 1 update.
The animation lag for the fingerprint unlock has also been fixed, and the same goes for the automatic Freeze and Reboot issues.

This update also improves system stability and fixes a number of smaller issues that OnePlus did not specifically name. General bug fixes are also included in the package, and OnePlus says that the overall performance has been improved.
The last change noted in the changelog states that OxygenOS Open Beta 2 update for the OnePlus 6 and 6T fixes the 5GHz WiFi connection. Some people experienced issues with connectivity in the Open Beta 1, and that should not be an issue after you update to the Open Beta 2.
This is, of course, beta software, so make sure you know what you're getting yourself into if you're planning to install it. The installation process is quite straightforward, but there are some things to note.
When you switch to a beta build from a stable build, you will not lose your data. When you do the opposite, you will, so please note that before you proceed.
You can find more information on how to install this update (if you're on stable), by hitting the link provided in the first paragraph. If you're already running Open Beta 1, this update will arrive to you as an OTA update.
It may take several days for this update to reach every user who is running Open Beta 1, so please note that as well.
New stable Android 10 build coming to the OnePlus 6 series soon
As a reminder, OnePlus did start pushing out Android 10 stable update to the OnePlus 6 and 6T recently. That update had some bug-related issues, so the company stopped rolling it out.
We're still waiting for the new build to arrive, but OnePlus did say that it is working on it. The new build was expected to arrive last week, but it did not, so it will hopefully drop sometime this week.
The OnePlus 7T and 7T Pro, on the other hand, ship with Android 10 out of the box. The update also arrived for the OnePlus 7 and 7 Pro before the 7T and 7T Pro even got announced.
