OxygenOS Open Beta update brings Ambient Display 2.0, new OnePlus fonts and more to OnePlus 3 and 3T

Even though OnePlus CEO Pete Lau has confirmed that the OnePlus 3 and 3T will be updated to Android O, owners of either of these smartphones will have to wait a lot because Google hasn’t publicly released Android O yet, and even after its release, users shouldn’t expect the update to arrive on their devices within a month or two. Well, having said, while there’s still time for OnePlus 3 and 3T users to receive Android O update, OnePlus is rolling out some new features to both these devices through OxygenOS OS Open Beta update.


OxygenOS Open Beta updates 17 and 8 are now available for the OnePlus 3 and 3T respectively. Both these updates are based on Android 7.1.1. Nougat and brings in some new features and optimizations to the 3 and the 3T.

Here’s what the Open Beta update for the OnePlus 3 and 3T comes with:

  • Ambient display 2.0
  • Lift up display
  • Sharing functionality for Shot on OnePlus
  • All new OnePlus Font (Available in English, Chinese, and Japanese only)
  • UI improvements for Gallery, Recorder, Weather and File Manager app
  • Enhanced launching speed of 3rd-party apps
  • Optimized management of foreground and background processes
  • Setup wizard adjusted to suit the style of Android 7.1
  • Refined contact import process from SIM card, now supports dual numbers and an email address
  • Automatically add corresponding country codes when making calls during roaming
  • Updated Android Security Patch level to 1st May 2017

Those users who are already on the Beta channel will receive this update over-the-air, however, those who aren’t, will have to flash their 3 or 3T with the beta version. Also, once you flash your device with the Beta version, you will no longer receive the stable builds.
