OnePlus 9R update brings OxygenOS 126.96.36.199 with Bitmoji AOD
The OnePlus 9R, an overclocked version of the OnePlus 8T that’s only available in India and China, is getting a new software update to OxygenOS 188.8.131.52. The update brings the most recent security patch level — July 2021 — and also enhances the Always on Display with new features.
According to the post announcing the update on the OnePlus forums, the latest update for the OnePlus 9R also optimizes the “overheating control management of third-party apps”, updates the preinstalled Google Mobile Services packages to the June 2021 release, and fixes other “known issue[s].” More importantly, the update also adds the Bitmoji AOD feature which recently rolled out to the other devices in the OnePlus 9 series. This feature lets you use your personal Bitmoji avatar on the Always on Display and can be found under Settings > Customization > Clock on ambient display > Bitmoji.
As always, the update is rolling out in waves, so you may not see the update on your device just yet. However, if you’d rather not wait for the device to reach your device, you can skip the wait and sideload the incremental OTA or full OTA zip. The incremental OTA can only be applied if your device is running the OxygenOS 184.108.40.206 update; otherwise, you’ll need to download the full OTA zip to update to the latest release.
