If you are an owner of OnePlus 3 or 3T smartphone, it’s time to rejoice. The Chinese manufacturer has released a new OxygenOS Open Beta for the OnePlus 3 and 3T device with an extensive list of features. Once the beta cycle finishes, the same update will be rolled out officially.
OnePlus has been pretty good in releasing software updates for its smartphones. And this can be credited to a small list of devices to handle, unlike Samsung or LG.
Upcoming features and Changes for OnePlus 3 and 3T
First of all, the newest OxygenOS beta for OnePlus 3 and 3T is based on the latest Android 7.1.1 Nougat.
The big list of features includes an all new launcher, complete with redesigned app drawer and settings interface. Users will also get a Gaming “Do Not Disturb” mode that locks the capacitive navigation buttons during play. This will ensure that no accidental triggers happen when playing a game in landscape mode. The new update also includes an auto Night mode, eliminating the requirement to toggle the setting manually. And last, but not least is a Secure Box feature for file encryption. It’s more or less like Samsung KNOX vault, where users can lock files like pictures and videos, only accessible via pin code.
Other than that, the update includes optimizations in touch latency and in video EIS. OnePlus has also tweaked the Contact handling. There is a quick pay option too specifically for the Indian audience. And all this is backed by usual bug fixes and performance improvement across the OS.
As for the official release date is concerned, OnePlus hasn’t specified any particular date, but we can expect the same to be delivered in a couple of months.
