First OnePlus 6 update brings option to hide the notch, slo-mo video support
OnePlus' first smartphone to feature a notch display design has just received its first important update. Although the OnePlus 6 is not yet available in all countries, those who managed to get their hands on one will now be able to update it with a couple of new features.

The most important new addition to the OnePlus 6' set of features is the option to hit the controversial notch. There's a new toggle buried in the phone's settings, which will allow OnePlus 6 users to show/hide the notch as they see fit.

Furthermore, the update adds support for slow-motion videos, which means OnePlus 6's camera will be able to shoot super slow motion videos at 720p@480fps and 1080p@240fps. In addition, the phone's camera now features support for quick capture in portrait mode.

The OnePlus Switch application will be added after the update, as well as the May security patch and support for more actions for recently deleted files in the Gallery.

OnePlus usually deploys these updates in waves, so a wider roll-out is likely to happen in the next couple of days, but the update is coming so make sure to check for its availability from time to time.
