OnePlus rolls out new OxygenOS Open Beta for OnePlus 3 and 3T, here is what's new

The OnePlus 3 and 3T continue to receive updates that address many of the issues reported by users. Either it's the Open Beta ring or the closed beta channel, OnePlus pushes new updates for these smartphones almost on a weekly basis.

The new OxygenOS Open beta 20/11 for the OnePlus 3 and OnePlus 3T, respectively, are now available for download to everyone who enrolled in the Open Beta program. These updates bring the same changes, so here is what you get if you own the OnePlus 3 or 3T.

First of all, several optimizations have been added such as the battery saver indication, which has been changed from orange status bar to a notification. Also, the calculation method for data usage statistics has been optimized, so tracking should now be more accurate.

Furthermore, expanded screenshot has been optimized too so that it allows users to make captures while GIFs and videos are being played. Lastly, some visual effects improvements for the Weather widget have also been included in the update.

According to OnePlus, a couple of bugs have been addressed in these Open Beta updates, which are likely to be released to a larger audience in the coming days.

Bug fixes:

  • Resolved various 3rd party app crashes;
  • Fixed Bluetooth device battery status wrongly displayed for non-supported devices;
  • Fixed Weather occasionally not being able to retrieve forecast data.

The update will arrive OTA (over the air) on any of the OnePlus 3 and 3T phones that have an Open Beta already installed. Otherwise, you'll have to flash it manually.

Only 13 more "betas" until an eventual stable release.

You won't get a stable update, you will receive a msg saying one plus 3/3t no longer supported .

What's with the hate on this phone? Have you ever even used it let alone used it too its full potential with a custom ROM and root? It is an extremely stable phone and ever since the beta 5, things were really stable. Every beta update there's a stable update that comes a few weeks after. They're literally the same thing except the betas have more beta optimizations that make it a bit faster. Good battery life, pretty decent camera, stable and stupid fast, fluid software, it is also the phone that thermal throttles the least. Unscratchable ceramic and also the fastest fingerprint scanner on any phone, great screen especially once you calibrate it a bit, amazing touch latency ever since one of the recent betas, sound quality is pretty good, build quality is outstanding, good quality aluminum is definitely used. Sounds like a good phone to me

What about the stuttering? I mean this phone's a powerhouse and runs everything smoothly but stutters horribly while scrolling
