OnePlus 3, 3T Now Receiving Android Nougat 7.0-Based OxygenOS 4.0 Update
In November, OnePlus announced that it would roll out the Android Nougat update for OnePlus 3 and OnePlus 3T users before the year ends. Meeting the deadline by a thin margin, OnePlus CEO Carl Pei on Saturday said the stable release of OxygenOS 4.0 based on Android 7.0 Nougat has started to roll out to users.
The update includes features such as new notification and settings menu design, a multi-window view, support for direct reply for notifications, custom DPI, the ability to choose status bar icons, and, last but not least, better Shelf customization. Also, Quick Launch is now available for third-party apps. As you might expect, the OnePlus 3T and OnePlus 3 update share the same changelog.
Since the update is rolling out in stages, some users will get it later than others. The company is calling it an “incremental rollout”, implying that it will roll out in batches, and only a few users will receive it on the first day, while others should receive it over the course of the next few days.
According to a Twitter user upgrading their OnePlus 3T, the size of the Android Nougat update is 919MB, so if you want to get it over the air you should consider connecting to a Wi-Fi network and good battery.
