After a not so long wait and plenty of testing, Chinese smartphone maker OnePlus has finally begun the roll out Oxygen OS 4.1.0. The firmware update that has begun rolling out for both OnePlus 3 and OnePlus 3T smartphones will arrive via an OTA update and it brings plenty of improvements and hopefully some new features over the previous ROM.
In what appears to be a first, OnePlus has become the first OEM to offer Android Nougat 7.1.1 on a smartphone. The only other devices out there that have this update come from Google, in the form of the Pixel, Pixel XL and the older Nexus lineup.
As always, the brand has taken inputs from its active forums.
As per the official change log both the OnePlus 3 and the OnePlus 3T come with the following improvements and features:
- Upgraded Android 7.1.1
- Updated Google security patch to 1st March 2017
- Added expanded screenshots
- Improved picture taking of moving objects with blur reduction
- Improved video stability when recording
- Improved WiFi connectivity
- Improved Bluetooth connectivity
- General bug fixes
Those who are on the previous versions of the OnePlus 3 and 3T software, the update will arrive as an OTA. It will be rolled out in waves so this is indeed one update that you will have to wait for. One cannot manually install them either as there are no official zip files available for download.
