Luckily the issue appears to be a software bug instead of being a hardware flaw. This implies that the issue can be resolved through an OTA update, which is what OnePlus firmly believes. The company has made an announcement that it will be releasing an 'Adaptive Brightness' feature along with the next OTA update which is expected to resolve the 'Screen Flickering' issue.

"We have noticed feedback from some users regarding the adaptive brightness feature on the OnePlus 6, it will be optimized in the next OTA update. (To be released very soon!)"

OnePlus came to rescue after the agonizing customers took it to the company's official forum to narrate their ordeal. Some of the complaints that were posted over the forum mentioned that the display of the OnePlus 6 devices flickered between two different brightness level under direct sunlight or when the brightness of the display is high. This issue might not be affecting all the units and could be a problem only for some. However, with the company acknowledging the issue we can expect a fix soon with the coming OxygenOS update.
