OnePlus 3 and OnePlus 3T models are now receiving the Android Oreo update

OnePlus 5 and future OnePlus 5T owners have something to be upset about and its the fact that OnePlus 3 and OnePlus 3T owners are going to be receiving the Android Oreo update starting from today. The manufacturer has pointed out that it is going to be rolling out updates for last year’s devices, though did not mention anything about the flagships that were released this year.

However, if your memory would serve you correctly, it was mentioned that a beta update of Android Oreo would be available from later this year and would eventually be rolled out in 2018. This will definitely not be making any of the current phone users happy because it was believed that those upgrading to the newer models would be given special treatment.

Here are the details that OnePlus has posted on its official forum thread.

System

  • Update to Android O (8.0)
  • Added Parallel Apps
  • Added Picture in Picture
  • Added Auto-fill
  • Added Smart text selection
  • New Quick Settings design
  • Updated security patch to September

Launcher

  • Added notification dots
  • New app folder design
  • Now able to upload photos directly to Shot on OnePlus

As always, this OTA will be incremental. The OTA will reach a small percentage of users today, and we’ll begin a broader rollout in a few days.

However, OnePlus did state that only a handful of OnePlus 3 and OnePlus 3T owners will get to experience the Android Oreo update and a global release will take place later in the future.
