LineageOS resumes to roll out support for devices, with the immensely widespread and popular OnePlus 6 now being supported by the most significant customized ROM. It’s almost odd that the OnePlus 6 has never been supported officially by LineageOS earlier than but given that OxygenOS is updated regularly and is about as near what users known as ‘stock Android’ as users can get, it is smart. After all, that has all changed as now you can download and flash nightly builds of LineageOS 16 on your OnePlus 6.
Given the Essential Phone received support just a few short days ago, it’s not too much of a shock that the OnePlus 6 has now been added to the supported list merely days later they offer related ‘stock-ish’ software experiences after all. OnePlus additionally commits to three years of support with OxygenOS, so maybe users are much less inclined to flash a custom ROM merely because of how well supported OnePlus units tend to be.
Users would also be surprised if other newer OnePlus units don’t follow suit and have LineageOS support added in the coming months particularly the OnePlus 6T, 7, and 7 Pro. The initial delays might have been down to how that OnePlus uses A/B partitions for seamless device OTA updates.
LineageOS support comes right off the again of news that the Android Q Beta 2 is heading out to OnePlus 6/6T devices so that it could come as a little side note. That mentioned, it is a welcome addition for fans of both LineageOS and the OnePlus 6. For those wanting to download the latest nightly build.
