OnePlus Releases A Minor Update to OxygenOS

OnePlus has rolled out another small but significant update to OxygenOS 4.0 for their OnePlus 3 and 3T.  The update bumps the build up to 4.0.3 and contains a number of bug fixes and patches.  Two of the items addressed in the release have to do with Wi-Fi, with IPv6 now supported and an improved Wi-Fi Switcher.  This feature will switch your connection over to data if your Wi-Fi signal is consistently poor.

The camera app has also been updated, increasing stability in the app according to the release notes.

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 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 3T Now Available Starting at $439

After being announced a couple of weeks ago, the new OnePlus 3T is now available for you to order.  The flagship device brings some nice improvements and updates from the OnePlus 3 including a 128GB storage option.  Powered by the Snapdragon 821 processor quad-core processor, the 5.5″ phone comes with 6GB of RAM and starts with 64GB of onboard storage.  The 64GB model starts at $439 and is available in Gunmetal Grey and Soft Gold (currently not in stock).  If you want the 128GB model, that is $479 and is only available in the Gunmetal grey color.  Both storage sizes are in stock and orders today are shipping and arriving by November 29th according to my order.

OnePlus Community App Hits The Play Store

OnePlus has had an active community of users and fans since their break into the market a couple of years back.  There is likely no better example of that community then the company’s user forums.  They are always teeming with activity, from those who are seeking help and those providing it, to company announcements about new software updates and hardware.  On the OnePlus 3, their latest phone, built into OxygenOS was a community forums app so users could get quick help or provide help right from their phone.  Now that app has made its way to the Play Store for anyone to install on their phones.

Android Marshmallow Released for the OnePlus X

OnePlus has finally released its Android Marshmallow build for the OnePlus X.  The update comes in the form of OnePlus’ homebrew Android, OxygenOS, and you are looking for build 3.1.2 if you have the 5″ phone.  The update is rolling out now but it could take several days for everyone to get it.  The update includes, interestingly, the October security update (yes, we are still in September) along with Marshmallow 6.0.1.  Jump on it now X owners, this is likely the last major update for the phone.

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.

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 Rolls Out Marshmallow Based OxygenOS 3 for the OnePlus 2

After several months of beta testing, the OnePlus team has finally released their Android Marshmallow based OxygenOS 3.0.2 build.  Based on the forum post made by the OnePlus team, the OTA update is just now rolling out and it will be done incrementally so it could be up to 48 hours before your OP2 sees the update hit it.  Once it does, you will have a Marshmallow 6.0.2 base along with all the goodies that come with it and the ones that OnePlus has baked into OxygenOS.

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.
