The new update also comes with a revamped quick settings design, along with the updated security patch for September from Google. At the event, OnePlus had confirmed a timeline for the open beta testing of Android Oreo on its new phones.

However, this works for OnePlus as the company now has to roll out Android Oreo and Android P for the device fulfilling the mandatory 2 updates policy. The update also brings several new features like - Picture in Picture (PiP), auto-fill, and smart text selection feature.




OnePlus announced that the Android 8.0 Oreo will be the last major update that the yesteryear flagship smartphones will receive. Both the devices now run the Android 7.0 Nougat based Oxygen OS.

With the new software update coming in, OnePlus 3 and 3T users are receiving system updates, bug fixes, several improvement and new features. If the update has arrived for your smartphone, you should be able to download and install. Do you want more Android updates on your OnePlus 3 or 3T? An open beta for Oreo on the 3/3T began in October, but this update is being made available for all users as an official build. In addition to these, the update has added new features such as notification dots, ability to upload photos directly to Shot on OnePlus and the new app folder design to the Launcher. This way, OnePlus has progressed to become the second manufacturer to roll out the Oreo update to its devices.
