Android Oreo update hits OnePlus 3 closed beta group, public beta for 3, 3T, and 5 coming soon

A new OTA update has become available to members of the OnePlus 3 closed beta group. With a size of around 800MB, the patch contains the eighth major version of Google's mobile OS - Android Oreo. 

According to Android Police, the current build of the Oreo update is far from stable. Testers are experiencing connectivity issues, such as unstable Wi-Fi, hotspot, Bluetooth, non-functional NFC, and so on. OnePlus has advised users to report any issues that may arise during the trial period.

Apparently, the Chinese manufacturer is trying to become one of the first OEMs to offer Android 8.0 to its customers. It is understood that the software upgrade should roll out to the OnePlus 3T and OnePlus 5 closed beta groups by mid-September, with the company aiming to produce a build ready for public testing by the end of the month.

Out of the box is different from rolling out an update for a device with an older os.

How I would love to see the manufacturers rush to get the Android updates within 1 to 2 months of it being released
