OnePlus Rolls Out OxygenOS 4.0.1 for The OnePlus 3 and 3T

A little over a week after the initial Nougat-based OxygenOS 4.0 release, OnePlus has released a small update for the OnePlus 3 and OnePlus 3T.  The new OxygenOS 4.0.1 build is rolling out to both devices currently and is primarily focused on addressing bugs and stability issues with the OS on these devices.  As OnePlus does, the update will be released to a small number of users first then roll out to the larger population as confirmation all is well with the update comes into them.

As for what is addressed, probably the biggest news is the updated APN settings.  After the initial OxygenOS 4.0 update, many 3 and 3T owners had network connectivity issues with their carrier.  This update should resolve those issues.  However, in the posting announcing the update, OnePlus is saying that if you still have issues, to manually adjust the APN settings or, worst case, report it to the product team at OnePlus with your phone model and carrier involved so they can help identify the issue and resolve it.

OnePlus 3 and 3T See Android Nougat Update

Keeping with their self imposed end-of-2016 deadline, OnePlus has released the Android Nougat based OxygenOS 4.0 update for the OnePlus 3 and OnePlus 3T.  The update was released very late on December 31st, hitting the deadline and the update is now making its way out to all owners of the 3 and 3T.  While it still may take a few days for your phone to see it, it is out and it is only a matter of time.

The update is all focused on Android Nougat.  The release notes in the OnePlus forums essentially highlight all of the features of Nougat and speak very little of any other changes that the company has made in their custom version of Android.

OnePlus 3 Sees OxygenOS Update – But Not THAT Update (Yet)

OnePlus has begun rolling out OxygenOS 3.2.8 for the OnePlus 3 but before you get all excited, no, it’s not Nougat.  Not yet at least.  The update is a small one but does bring several improvements and fixes to the OP3, the company’s flagship device until a couple of weeks ago with then 3T was announced.  Still, OnePlus has remained committed to getting software updates out for both the 3 and the 3T and even though this update isn’t Nougat, that is expected before the end of the year.

So what’s in this update?  Quite a few nice changes and updates

OnePlus Releases Beta 6 of OxygenOS 3.5.5 for the OnePlus 3

OnePlus has released a 6th beta of their Android Nougat based OxygenOS release for the OnePlus 3.  The new build, version 3.5.5, brings a lot of changes as the company gets ready for a public release of the update in December.  If you already have the beta installed on your OnePlus 3, this update to the home-brew version of Android for the OP3 will come to you via an OTA update.  If you are not a part of the beta program, you can sign up and then do a manual flash of your device to this latest build.

As for what is addressed in this update, it is pretty extensive and for those in the beta program, its well worth the update.

OnePlus Rolling Out OxygenOS 3.2.6 to OnePlus 3 Devices

OnePlus has announced that a big update for OxygenOS is coming to the OnePlus 3 starting today.  The updated build is version 3.2.6 and will have a small roll out today with a broader roll out starting tomorrow.  The Android Marshmallow-based build has a significant number of performance and bug fixes in the update and if you have a OnePlus 3, you will most certainly want to get this installed on your device as soon as it comes to it.  You should get an OTA update over the course of the next few days and you can manually check for it by going to Settings>About Phone>System Update.

OxygenOS Updated for OnePlus 3

The OnePlus team has begun rolling out an OTA update to the OnePlus 3 that brings a sizable number of improvements to the device.  OxygenOS 3.2.2 is being rolled out to users in phases as the company continues to tweak and improve their homebrew version of Android Marshmallow for the flagship phone.  One of the big changes is the improvement of notification management in Doze, the battery saving feature of Marshmallow while your phone is unplugged and idle.  Another big improvement is the alert slide/silent mode issue where some users were accidentally turning on their phones while dropping it into their pockets.  This, appears at least, to have been fixed with this update.

Download The Complete Set of OnePlus 3 Wallpapers

Yesterday I posted the stock wallpaper for the OnePlus 3 and based on traffic, a lot of you have enjoyed it.  I’ve not collected all of the stock wallpapers that come on the device and have them here for you to download.  In all, there are 5 wallpapers with the OP3 including the stock wallpaper with the “Never Settle” branding.  All five of the wallpapers are posted after the break so if you want to get them, continue on.  All of these wallpapers were created by Hampus Olsson who was also the creator of the wallpapers for the OnePlus 2.  The work is beautiful in my view and I thought the same of the ones for the OP2.  Those wallpapers, by-the-way, you can find on the Wallpaper Page.

Download The OnePlus 3 Wallpaper

As everyone knows by now, the OnePlus 3 was launched today by OnePlus.  You can get all the specs on this year’s “Flagship Killer” from the company from this post I made earlier.  As with any new phone however, the real treat for many is getting the stock wallpaper.  Now you can do that right here.  After the break you will find the stock or default wallpaper for the OnePlus 3 available for you to download and put on your own device.  It is beautiful wallpaper in my opinion that is colorful and artistic.

OnePlus Abandons Invite System for OnePlus 3

As I posted yesterday, OnePlus plans to launch their next flagship device, the OnePlus 3, on June 15th.  Perhaps the better news for OnePlus fans is the fact that, for the first time, you won’t need an invite to purchase the company’s new phone the day it goes on sale.  That’s right, the invites are gone!

For those of you who aren’t familiar with what I’m referring to, let me give you some background.  With the launch of the original OnePlus One, the OnePlus 2 and the OnePlus X, the company required that you have an invite to purchase the phone.  An invite was acquired by requesting one from the company and later by contributing to their forums, you could move up in queue.  The idea for OnePlus was to allow them to see a reasonable representation of demand for the device so they could keep manufacturing overhead (extra inventory down) under control.  It was a great concept for the company, but one that pretty much failed from a customer experience perspective.

OnePlus To Launch The OnePlus 3 On June 15

The wait for the latest flagship from OnePlus is only 15 days away.  The company announced on the Weibo site that the OnePlus 3 will launch on June 15th at 10AM local time in an online VR experience.  OnePlus has made a name for itself with its “flagship killer” devices in the past, the OnePlus One and the OnePlus 2, and based on the rumors of what is expected to be in the 3, they will likely continue that killer stance.  Based on the TENAA report on the device, it should have a Snapdragon 820 SoC processor, 4GB of RAM, 64GB of Storage and a 5.5″ Full HD Display.
