OnePlus 3 getting new OxygenOS 4.0.1 update based on Android 7.0 Nougat


OnePlus has started the incremental rollout of a new update for its previous flagship, the OnePlus 3. The update is released as OxygenOS 4.0.1 and is based on Android 7.0 Nougat since the smartphone has already been upgraded to this version of the OS.

The update brings a couple of improvements and fixes such as updated APN settings for select carriers and increased system stability. OnePlus also states the proximity sensor bug during calls has been fixed too.

Among the known issues mentioned by OnePlus is Wi-Fi connectivity, which might not work flawlessly. If you noticed the connection fluctuates, you should offer your feedback on the matter.

Also, OnePlus offers some workarounds regarding an issue with some apps that might not download from the Google Play store. First of all, OnePlus claims that if you're trying to download apps via Data Roaming, it should not work since this is a known Google issue. Simply follow Google's troubleshooting step to solve the issue.

If that's not the case, then you should try turning Battery Saving Mode and reset Google Play store app preferences. If you still can't download some app, then you should check if you have the following apps installed on your OnePlus 3: Truecaller, AVG Antivirus and PayTm.

If any of these three apps are installed, then you should try to force stop or uninstall them before trying to download an app from Google Play store.

Lastly, for those who experience mobile data issues caused by APN, OnePlus recommend going to APN settings page and manually try all the options. If the issues aren't solved, then you should provide your feedback to the developers, so they replicate the bug.

Haven't installed anything new but when I tried to update Chrome over WiFi, it didn't download...but it shows the downloading screen. I also noticed frame drops while playing games, which it didn't have before the update. Goes down to 39-50 from smooth 60fps. Battery has improved, however.

I used opera vpn and set the locaton to canada and got the 7.0 update. Its a gradual rollout so it might not reach your device as fast as you hope. If youre impatient, use the vpn method

USA, and no official OTA yet either. As DONUT stated, VPN set to Canada/Germany works if you are becoming impatient

ok. these updates are very good, but what about going back to using the volume button to change from sound to vibrate using using the slider. What would OnePlus expect? if the button breaks, go and buy and new phone? Hellz no. Please go back and give people the choice. Or even smarter, pulla samsung! Slide down where you can see, Wi-FI, Bluetooth , etc and give option to ring, vibrate or silent. It would make peopel very happy!
