OnePlus 3 And OnePlus 3T Android 8.0 Oreo Update Released

Adnan Farooqui November 19, 2017


OnePlus has started the incremental roll-out of OxygenOS 5.0. What that means is that the company has released the OnePlus 3 and OnePlus 3T Android 8.0 Oreo update. This is the first official Oreo build for these handsets. It was only a couple of months ago when the Oreo beta was released for OnePlus 3. The beta was rolled out to a limited number of users so this public release is definitely going to be welcomed by the OnePlus community.

The OxygenOS 5.0 update brings all of the features that are included in Android 8.0 Oreo. The update also adds picture-in-picture support, auto-fill, parallel apps, smart text selection, a new design for quick settings, and more. It updates the security patch level on the handset to September.

The launcher has received some tweaks as well. Users will notice a new app folder design, notification dots, and the ability to upload photos directly to Shot on OnePlus.

The company has pointed out that it’s an incremental update so the OnePlus 3 and OnePlus 3T Android 8.0 Oreo update is only going to be released for a small percentage of users initially before the broader rollout in the coming days.

The OnePlus 5T, the flagship handset that OnePlus recently launched, is going to receive a similar update early next year so those who pick up the new handset will have to wait for a while before they get a taste of Oreo.

Android 8.0 Oreo Beta For OnePlus 3 And 3T Available Now

Adnan Farooqui October 15, 2017


Google launched Android 8.0 Oreo a couple of months ago but there aren’t a lot of handsets out there that have received this update. OEMs will take a few months to get the update ready for some of their handsets and the update will then be released. OnePlus is also in the process of doing this. The company has now made the Android 8.0 Oreo beta available for the OnePlus 3 and OnePlus 3T.

OnePlus is running an open beta program for Android 8.0 Oreo. Anyone with the OnePlus 3 or OnePlus 3T can join it to get a sense of what new features Oreo brings to the table.

However, there is some work involved in getting the beta firmware up and running on the handset. Users will be required to hook up their phones to a PC, they will also have to follow the instructions properly to avoid any problems. It’s best if they backup all important data to ensure that the data remains protected in the event something goes wrong.

The appropriate beta files are available now for the OnePlus 3 and OnePlus 3T from the company’s website. That’s also where the instructions can be found, one the process has been completed, the device will reboot with Android 8.0 Oreo beta.

There are some issues present in the beta firmware that have been highlighted. Users might experience fingerprint unlock to be slow in some situations, lack of optimization for some third-party apps, unavailability of shortcut access to Google Photos, and more.

OnePlus will likely go ahead with the public release of Android 8.0 Oreo for OnePlus 3 and OnePlus 3T before the end of this year.

OnePlus 3 Closed Beta Group Receives Android 8.0 Oreo Update

Tyler Lee September 7, 2017

If you are a OnePlus 3 owner and you’re looking forward to receiving the very tasty Android 8.0 Oreo update and are wondering when it will be released, you’ll be pleased to learn that work is already being done in getting the update ready for the phone. According to reports, the closed beta group for the OnePlus 3 has started to receive the Android 8.0 Oreo update.

However we should point out that given that this is the closed beta group that it means that the software is still in the beta phase, so it could still be awhile before it is officially released to the masses. It is also interesting that out of all the OnePlus handsets released, the OnePlus 3 got it first as opposed to the newer OnePlus 3T or the OnePlus 5, but both these devices should receive their beta update soon enough.

The company is also aiming for a public beta by the end of this month, so if you are not part of the closed beta group, you will still be able to participate in the beta testing once OnePlus puts it out there for the public. There is no timeframe for when the update will be released, but like we said it’s nice to see that work is already being done.

In the meantime the company’s older handsets will be missing the update, but if you’re the owner of a OnePlus One or OnePlus 2, not to worry as there are unofficial builds being developed for it.

Android O Will Be Last Major Update For OnePlus 3, 3T

Tyler Lee August 11, 2017

At the rate phones are being released, it is safe to say that companies tend to stretch themselves too thin which is when when it comes to Android updates, many companies pick and choose which devices they want to focus on, and more often than not after a couple of years, you can kiss goodbye to said updates.

This is why it doesn’t really come as a surprise to learn that OnePlus will be done with the OnePlus 3 and 3T after the Android O update. According to a post on the OnePlus forums, the company’s Head of Product Oliver Z revealed and confirmed that Android O will be the last major Android update for the OnePlus 3 and 3T.

However this doesn’t mean that OnePlus will be abandoning either handset. Both phones will still receive updates such as security patches from time to time, but don’t expect them to receive the next major Android update, which assuming Google keeps to their naming scheme should be Android P and should be released in 2018.

According to Oliver Z, “Android O is going to be the last Android version update we’ll release for OP3/3T. We’ll continue to release security patch updates for the foreseeable future, and offer support for individual application updates.” That being said, it is unclear when Android O will be officially released. We heard a rumor last week that suggested that it could be this week, but so far we haven’t seen anything.

OnePlus 3, OnePlus 3T To Get Android O This Year

Tyler Lee June 27, 2017

The benefits to being a smaller company with few products in its portfolio is that OnePlus gets to concentrate more and pour more resources and efforts into products that they do have. This also means that unlike bigger companies like Samsung, OnePlus only has a few devices that needs updating, which is why both the OnePlus 3 and OnePlus 3T received the Android Nougat update last year relatively earlier than other devices.

The good news is that it looks like that tradition of speed/efficiency will be applied to the next major Android release, Android O. In a post on Reddit, OnePlus has confirmed that both the OnePlus 3 and OnePlus 3T will be receiving the update to Android O by the end of this year. When exactly remains to be seen as Google has yet to officially release Android O, but presumably it should be in the coming months.

As to when OnePlus will get around to releasing it, last year we saw OnePlus release Nougat in December, so presumably it should take them just as long as well. There was no mention of the recently launched OnePlus 5 and its update to Android O, but presumably it should also be updated within the same time frame, if not earlier. Either way we’ll keep our eyes peeled for more information regarding the update, so check back with us in the coming months for the details.

Android O For OnePlus 3 And OnePlus 3T Confirmed

Adnan Farooqui May 31, 2017


OnePlus fans are anxiously waiting for more information about the company’s next flagship smartphone. OnePlus CEO Pete Lau has provided a bit of information today which concerns the company’s existing handsets. Lau has confirmed that the next major Android release, currently referred to as Android O, will be coming to the OnePlus 3 and OnePlus 3T when it finally goes live later this year.

Lau confirmed over Twitter that people were asking him about Android O being released for these handsets so he thought it was prudent to confirm that the OnePlus 3 and OnePlus 3T will both be updated to Android O when the time comes.

OnePlus released the OnePlus 3 and OnePlus 3T last year. Both handsets were running Android 6.0 Marshmallow when they arrived. Since Android devices are covered for major updates for at least two years, it’s not surprising to know that they will get the Android O update in due time.

You can imagine that this announcement hasn’t made a lot of OnePlus 2 owners happy. They would like to get Android O for their handsets as well but since their devices are over two years old, it’s unlikely that OnePlus is going to release the update for that handset.

Lau obviously didn’t say when the Android O update will be released for the OnePlus 3 and OnePlus 3T, that’s because Google hasn’t confirmed when it will release this update. It hasn’t even confirmed what Android O is going to be called officially.

A lot of you have been asking, so I’m proud to say Android O will come to OnePlus 3 and 3T.

The OnePlus 3 Touch Latency Has Been Fixed

Tyler Lee April 7, 2017

While a lot of phones have specs that look similar, it’s the subtleties that makes all the difference. For example it could be how manufacturers optimize their UI to make it smooth, or how to squeeze out the best possible images from sensors using their own algorithms and software.

In the case of the OnePlus 3, not all touchscreens were made equal because if you might recall, back in 2016 a developer pointed out how when compared to other Android phones, the OnePlus 3’s touch latency was the “worst”. Granted it might not necessarily be very perceivable by most users, but it does impact the overall experience of the phone.

Touch latency ✔️
Alert Slider ⏰

— Carl Pei (@getpeid) April 6, 2017

The good news is that touch latency on the OnePlus 3 has been fixed, or at least that’s according to a tweet by OnePlus co-founder Carl Pei in a recent tweet. According to Pei’s tweet, he has suggested that the touch latency for the OnePlus 3 has been addressed, and that they are now working on the alert slider.

We’re not sure if this has been addressed in the previous patch/update that was released for the phone or if it’s in reference to an upcoming one, but we are assuming the latter. Unfortunately there’s no timeline as to when the update will be released, but either way it’s good news for OnePlus 3 owners.

OnePlus 3 Update Brings Google Assistant

Adnan Farooqui March 7, 2017


Google confirmed not too long ago that it will soon release Google Assistant for all Android smartphones running version 6.0 Marshmallow and up. This means that the AI assistant is no longer exclusive to Pixel smartphones. The release kicked off a couple of days back and now a OnePlus 3 update has brought the Google Assistant to this handset.

Assistant is Google’s artificial intelligence-powered virtual helper that can do a wide variety of tasks. It was previously limited to the company’s Pixel smartphones and the Google Home smart speaker but now it’s available for a wide variety of Android handsets. Rumors even suggest that Google Assistant might be released for iOS as well.

Google Assistant has now been rolled out to English users in the United States, Canada, Australia, Germany, and the United Kingdom. You need to be based in one of those markets to use this feature on your Android smartphone that’s running on at least Android 6.0 Marshmallow. Google Assistant will get support for more languages throughout this year.

OnePlus has rolled out an over-the-air update for the OnePlus 3 which brings Google Assistant to its handset. It’s unclear right now when this update is going to be released for the OnePlus 3T which is more than capable of powering Assistant as well.

Android 7.0 Nougat Released For OnePlus 3, OnePlus 3T

Tyler Lee January 1, 2017

android nougatBack in November, OnePlus said that they would be releasing the Android 7.0 Nougat update for both the OnePlus 3 and OnePlus 3T in December, and also promised that they would be available by the end of the year. Call it cutting it close or whatever you want to call it, but it looks like OnePlus has kept to their word.

In a series of tweets by the company’s co-founder, Carl Pei, it seems that OnePlus will begin the gradual rollout of the stable build for Android Nougat for both phones tonight. Like we said it is cutting it pretty close and we’re pretty sure that not all users will be able to update to Nougat by the end of 2016, but we guess it’s a good way to end the year, and also a pretty decent way to bring in the new year.

There have also been new posts on both the OnePlus 3 and OnePlus 3T forums. Both posts are identical and basically tell users what kind of changes they can expect in OxygenOS 4.0. This includes new notification design, a new settings menu design, multi-window view, and more along with the rest of whatever else Nougat brings to the table (save for some features which are exclusive to the Google Pixel handsets).

OnePlus 4 Release May Be Skipped For Ceramic OnePlus 5

Adnan Farooqui December 5, 2016

oneplus_3_002
OnePlus came out with the OnePlus 3 earlier this year. It remained the company’s flagship smartphone for about eight months before OnePlus decided to launch an upgraded variant that it’s calling the OnePlus 3T. There are some questions about how the company’s smartphone lineup is going to progress from this and rumor has it that it’s going to skip the OnePlus 4 release in favor of the OnePlus 5 which is claimed to tout a ceramic body. Superstition may also play a part in this.

The number 4 is generally considered to be unlucky in China and we’ve seen companies like Vivo skip the number 4 for their handsets as well. Perhaps that’s one of the reasons why the OnePlus 4 release might be skipped in favor of the OnePlus 5.

Rumor has it that OnePlus is going to launch the OnePlus 5 in the first half of 2017. It’s also claimed that the handset is going to have a ceramic body. Apparently, it’s going to source the ceramic material from the same company that supplied it to Xiaomi for the Mi Mix.

There’s no word on the specifications at this point in time but considering that the handset is due until next year, it’s quite likely that the OnePlus 5 is going to run Android 7.0 Nougat straight out of the box.

None of this has been officially confirmed by the company as yet so take it with a grain of salt.
