The highly anticipated OnePlus 5T has been officially announced. OnePlus has confirmed that it will be brining Android Oreo beta update for OnePlus 5T and OnePlus 5 users in the next month. The Chinese firm has not forgotten the users of OnePlus 3 and OnePlus 3T as the company has a new OxygenOS update for these phones.
OnePlus 3T users who have enrolled in the beta program are now getting Open Beta 18 and OnePlus 3 beta users are now receiving Open Beta 24. Following are the changes and improvements that are arriving with the new update:
- New UI for Do Not Disturb (We’ve made the Do Not Disturb setting easier to understand)
- Optimized standby battery usage
- Smart Text Selection improvements (This option should now work as intended)
- General performance improvements
- Updated OnePlus and GMS applications (We’ve updated OnePlus Gallery, and fixed some bugs in Weather, Recorder, and File Manager)
- Updated Google security patch (October 2017)
- Other bug fixes and optimizations (Updates to language localization, fixes for extended screenshot in some applications, Bluetooth performance enhancements, camera gesture fixes, and memory optimizations)
The new Open beta builds for OP3 and OP3T contain two UI bugs. Those bugs can be seen in the above snapshot. As it can be seen, there are some blank spaces in the Quick Settings menu. Also, the “Audio output” option is missing in the leftmost snapshot. Apart from these bugs, the new beta update also includes plenty of bug fixes and customizations.
Users should be aware of the fact that these are not stable builds. Users who are not satisfied by the new Oxygen OS beta for OnePlus 3 and 3T can revert to the Open Beta N build. However, downgrading to Nougat on Open Beta requires users to follow special instructions. Doing so ca also lead to partial loss of data. Hence, users are advised to read well before installing Oreo builds. More information is available in the source link.
