OnePlus 3T update: OxygenOS Open Beta 6 released

Update [May 02, 2017]: The OnePlus 3T is receiving a new update now. OxygenOS Open Beta 6 now brings a new Dialer and incoming call interface, new action bar for messages and settings, optimizations to Night mode, Bluetooth and the user interface too. The update weighs pretty large at 1.46GB and also includes various bug fixes.

Update [April 20, 2017]: OnePlus is starting to push out Hydrogen OS Beta 5 to the OnePlus 3T now. The update is based on Android 7.1.1 and weighs 1.33GB. Bluetooth and GPS performance are a lot more improved with this build. The update also resolved issues with system stability and fixes a bug with night mode. Considering the size of the update, it is better to download over WiFi to save on data charges.

OxygenOS Open Beta 5 is also out for the OnePlus 3T. This build follows suit with Hydrogen OS Beta 5 and optimizes Bluetooth and GPS performance too. It also fixes prevailing fixes within the Launcher and brings minor improvements to translations, Dark theme and the Clock widget. With this build, the community app gets the bump to version 1.8.

Update [April 13, 2017]: Android 7.1.1 Nougat is here to stay, with the OnePlus 3T receiving the update through OOS version 4.1.3. Expanded screenshots are now supported with this update along with improvements to the camera through the introduction of blur reduction. Bugs with swiping Instagram pictures and hardware buttons malfunctioning have also been fixed with this build.

Update [April 11, 2017]: Hydrogen OS version 2 is now rolling out to the Chinese variant of the OnePlus 3T. Improvements to the camera app, 2G network registration and a fix for the random black screen are also included with this update. Since the update is quite large at 1.4GB, it’s better to download it over WiFi.

Update [March 31, 2017]: A new OTA for OxygenOS Open Beta 4 for the OnePlus 3T is now rolling out. With this build, the launcher settings UI and app drawer have now been redesigned. The OOS Open Beta 4 now features a new launcher with support for shortcuts too. This build also brings quick pay for Indian OnePlus 3T users.

Additional features like Gaming Do Not Disturb mode, auto Night Mode, Secure Box for file encryption and Notification Denoising have been added with this update. A status bar icon option to display real time network speeds has been added. Touch latency and camera EIS have also been optimized with this update. Aside from other bug fixes and improvements, contacts management with linking and merge functions have also been improved.

Update [March 28, 2017]: It was reported earlier that OnePlus 3T users were experiencing a hardware malfunction bug on OxygenOS 4.1.0 update that brought the Android 7.1.1 update to the device. Seems they fixed the bug today, along with another one where you had issues with doing a swiping action on Instagram app, as the team has release the OxygenOS 4.1.1 update today, whose changelog covers both of the above-mentioned issues.

If your OnePlus 3T is updated to 4.1.0 Android 7.1.1 build, you would see the 4.1.1 update pretty soon. While, if you are yet to see 4.1., you will directly get updated to 4.1.1 which brings all the changes and new stuff from the 4.1.0, besides fixing the above mentioned bugs too.

Update [March 16, 2017]: Cementing their position as perhaps the best Android OEM when it comes to software updates, OnePlus today started rolling out the stable Android 7.1.1 update for its OnePlus 3T (and 3), which was already available under beta as version Open Beta 3. We’re yet to see the likes of Samsung, LG and Motorola release 7.1.1 build yet, so kudos to OnePlus team for achieving this.

The OxygenOS 4.1.0 update gets you March security patch (latest right now), and also a new feature called expanded screenshots, that lets you grab lengthy screenshots, enough to cover even a whole page. You also get improvements in Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity, while if you take a lot of pictures of moving objects, you will be happy to learn that today’s update will lessen the blur on those images. And that is apart from the extra stability your video recording should have on OxygenOS 4.1.0, which rounds up the changelog.

Update [March 01, 2017]: The OnePlus 3T is now receiving the Android 7.1.1 Nougat update as we speak, as the OTA has already started seeding down. Labeled as OxygenOS Open Beta 3, the update also brings some new features to Gallery and Wallpaper settings, but not anything groundbreaking. Check out full changelog in the screenshots below. Though, the OnePlus 3T would now support Google Day Dream VR, so that’s a huge plus apart from the 7.1.1 build. Google Assistant? Well, when Google decides to give that to non-Pixel devices on Marshmallow and Nougat — which is has already announced — you should see it then. It’s not something OnePlus handles, or could handle.

Update [January 07, 2017]: OnePlus 3T has received a new update that fixes the Play Store download bug too, or rather provides manual fixes in the announcement. The update comes as OxygenOS 4.0.1, and is based on Android 7.0 (no 7.1.1 upgrade yet!), while also fixes bug with proximity sensor, and updates APN settings for selected carriers.

And OnePlus definitely doesn’t looks off the pace with its targeted release date of December 2017 for the OnePlus 3T. That should come around Christmas, BTW.

OnePlus just issued the first update for the OnePlus 3T, and it comes as software version OxygenOS 3.5.3. The update adds emergency calling for Indian users — pressing power button three times will activate it — which is a nice addition.

The 3.5.3 OTA for OnePlus 3T also adds OnePlus’ community app, UI changes to clock app and calling screen, while updating device touch panel and improving GPS library and location accuracy.

What’s mote interesting though, is improvements to camera app, which would now detect motion, while also enhancing the overall capture quality of the device.

Of course, ever present on the software update roster, bug fixes and improved system stability are also part of the update.

    Got the update on my OP3T, went in for an update, after downloading, the phone hanged. Now Oneplus tech support says that the phone OS is corrupted. Waiting to see what will be done.

      Did you have a custom ROM installed? If yes, then install TWRP recovery back, and install the Full ROM zip file using TWRP recovery on your OnePlus 3T.
      That should fix it.
