OnePlus 3 and 3T receive Android 7.1.1-based beta update

OnePlus 3T flagship gets new beta firmware based on Android 7.1.1 Nougat
OnePlus 3T
The new beta software update has almost 1.5 GB in size and comes with improvements to the Gallery app and a new Shot on OnePlus wallpaper option, also taking care of a few bugs and providing various tweaks.

OnePlus seems to be moving pretty fast with the updates for its latest handsets, although it might take a while until the Android 7.1.1 Nougat-based firmware reaches its final form. For now, both OnePlus 3 and OnePlus 3T receive a new beta firmware build.

For now, these updates are known as Open Beta 3 (OnePlus 3T) and Open Beta 12 (OnePlus 3). However, their highlights are the same:

  • Android 7.1.1 Nougat
  • New Shot on OnePlus wallpaper feature
  • multiple Gallery improvements
  • general bug fixes

The new firmware is about 1.5 GB in size and, sadly, it also comes with a few known issues. Fortunately, there are only two problems, and one of them already has a fix available - Android Pay not working on London TFL/Tube can be easily solved by updating the app via Google Play, while the compatibility issues encountered with certain third party apps should be ironed out until the firmware gets out of beta.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
