OnePlus is rolling out the first software update for its newly launched OnePlus 3T smartphone, which is now available for purchase exclusively via O2 starting from £31 per month.
The over-the-air update with OxygenOS version 3.5.3 and based on Android 6.0.1, is an incremental rollout, and will hit all regions eventually.
Upon updating your OnePlus 3T with the latest Oxygen version, you should notice increased stability along with a few changes. They include a redesigned user interface for clock and call, updated GPS library and optimised location accuracy, updated touch panel firmware and touch precision.
Apart from that, it adds motion detection feature in camera and enhanced image capturing quality and emergency calling, but this is for users in India only. It also brings the OnePlus community app and fixes bug issues.
Along with the announcement about the rollout, the company reiterates what it mentioned about the software update for OnePlus 3 and 3T earlier saying both the phones will be on the same update schedule beginning with the release of Android Nougat. An OxygenOS update is already available for the OnePlus 3.
Those who have not received the update notification yet, may use the OTA file to manually install it on their phones. The folks at XDA were quite fast to share the OTA file.
