Just about managing to stick to its words, OnePlus co-founder Carl Pei today announced through Twitter that the official Nougat update has started rolling out for the OnePlus 3 and 3T.
OnePlus today released the third Nougat beta for the OnePlus 3. The team behind the OS has taken feedback submitted to them with the release of OxygenOS Open Beta 9 and has incorporated those changes in the latest OxygenOS Open Beta 10.
The OnePlus 3 has turned out to be one of the most popular smartphones of this year. After the failure of the OnePlus 2, OnePlus went back to the drawing board and came up with the excellent OnePlus 3. As if the customization price-to-performance ratio of the phone was not already enough, OnePlus has also ensured that the 3 is among the most developer friendly phones out there.
Along with a new build of OxygenOS for the OnePlus 3T, OnePlus also released a new Nougat beta for the OnePlus 3. The second beta update for the handset is essentially aimed at fixing all the bugs and issues that were present in the first build.
For OnePlus 3 owners who aren’t afraid to put some beta software on their device, OnePlus has a surprise.
Just a few months after it initially unveiled the OnePlus 3, OnePlus has replaced it with the OnePlus 3T. Replacing the 3, the 3T comes with some minor improvements that make it a better handset to buy.
Last night, a report from XDA claimed that the OnePlus 3 and 3T suffer from poor touch latency issues. The issue was corroborated by multiple OnePlus 3/3T owners, though the issue is not something that greatly affected the usability of the phone.
Last week, OnePlus launched the OnePlus 3T which went on sale in most countries earlier today. OnePlus has been dominating the mid-range smartphone market in India and China, but despite that, the company did not formally announce a launch date for its newest handset in both countries.
