Over the weekend, OnePlus released a new OxygenOS open beta build for the OnePlus 3 and 3T. The latest beta brings a number of new features and perhaps most importantly improves the touch latency performance on the handsets.
The OnePlus team has released the first open beta build of OxygenOS based on Android 7.1.1 for the OnePlus 3 and 3T. The open beta builds bring a number of new features and enhancements while also fixing some bugs.
The OxygenOS team over at OnePlus has started rolling out the OxygenOS 4.0.3 update for the OnePlus 3 and OnePlus 3T. The latest version comes with a number of bug fixes and improvements that have been plaguing the OS since the original Nougat update landed on the devices.
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.
OxygenOS Will Continue to Offer a Stock Android UI; Merger with HydrogenOS to Not Affect User Experience
Earlier this year, in a bid to improve its software roll out times, OnePlus merged OxygenOS with HydrogenOS. While OxygenOS offers a near-stock Android experience, HydrogenOS is preloaded on the OnePlus units sold in China and doesn’t resemble stock Android in any way. Soon, there were multiple reports that the company would be merging HydrogenOS and OxygenOS into one and thereby stop offering the stock Android-like feel.
OnePlus has started rolling out another OxygenOS update for the OnePlus 3 from today. The OxygenOS 3.2.4 update is a pretty small 26MB update that seems to be targeted at fixing some bugs in the OS. It also likely includes a patch to fix the QuadRooter vulnerability affecting Qualcomm powered devices that was discovered earlier this week.
The OnePlus 2 had been touted as the flagship killer, with the ability to take on top-of-the-line devices from companies such as Samsung, Sony and HTC. It considered the Galaxy S6 as it’s greatest nemesis and promised to deliver equal performance at half the price. Yet until today, the device’s software did not seem ready to update itself to Android Marshmallow and be on par with the flagships it would reportedly annihilate.
After successfully launching the Oppo R9 earlier this month, the company has now announced that the bigger brother, the R9 Plus, will be available starting June 2nd in Singapore. The device is launching in conjuncture with the annual PC Show and will retail at all Oppo concept stores as well as Singapore’s three telcos, M1, StarHub and SingTel.
The Oppo R9, also called the F1 Plus in some markets, is touted as Oppo’s flagship device for the very Dorian Gray public of today – narcissistic and selfie obsessed. Unlike Dorian Gray, however, they need not have to sit through an arduous painting, but can have their image immortalised for eternity within seconds with the higher resolution front camera. Whether this image does justice to their beauty, or not, can be discovered later in this review.
