OxygenOS 3.0 enters public beta

OxygenOS 3.0 enters public beta stage
OnePlus handsets
OnePlus has just released the first public beta of OxygenOS 3.0 for OnePlus 2, so the real deal should launch in early April if everything works well.

As we already found out not long ago, OnePlus has begun soak testing for OxygenOS 3.0 for OnePlus 2. The Marshmallow-based firmware has apparently proven itself reliable enough to be shared with the users, so OnePlus is now moving it to the public beta stage.

According to the official forum post about this ROM, "What’s available today is a daily-driver-material community release of 3.0. If you’re the type who won't mind rolling up your sleeves a bit to get your Marshmallow on, this one’s for you." The company still needs feedback on network testing, camera improvements, as well as overall performance and battery life.

In addition to the Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow core, the highlights of OxygenOS 3.0 beta include a new wallpaper picker, enhancements to Shelf UX, 45 percent faster fingerprint reader (compared to OxygenOS 2.2.1), various settings changes, general performance improvements, as well as the latest security patches.

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.
