Last month, OnePlus confirmed that both the OnePlus 3 and the OnePlus 3T will get their last open beta build update in the first week of July. OnePlus is living up to its words. Starting today, OnePlus is pushing the final open beta builds for the OnePlus 3 and the OnePlus 3T. For the OnePlus 3, this is the Open Beta 39, while for the 3T its Beta 30. The stable build of the software update will be rolled out by the end of this month.
It is important to note this is a beta update and hence may not be as stable as the official OTA update. “Please keep in mind that this is beta software. These builds are sometimes not as stable as our official OTAs generally are. By installing this update, you accept the potential risks,” OnePlus noted in a blogpost.
According to OnePlus, the latest open beta builds bring significant changes to the app drawer, camera app, and audio setup of both the OnePlus 3 and OnePlus 3T. The update brings improvement to the search tags of the app drawer. It also brings adds “New installs” category tag in the app drawer and improves app list for hidden space and toolbox.
In addition, the new OxygenOS update optimizes switching between front and rear camera. This means, with the new update, it will be easy for users to switch between the back and selfie camera, unlike before. The transition between the cameras will be smooth now.
The software update also adds the capability to scrub/seek through AAC audio file timelines, OnePlus said.
OnePlus 3 and 3T users who have their phones running on the latest Open Beta will receive the software update automatically via an OTA. While users who are not in beta can download the full ROM from here. Before downloading the ROM, ensure to wipe full data before updating from stable to open beta. “Once you migrate to the Beta path, you will continue to receive Open Beta OTAs. You will no longer receive the regular Official Stable OTAs.”
“Please note that this is the last open beta for OnePlus 3 and OnePlus 3T, we will provide a stable version of OnePlus 3/3T for beta testers to migrate back to stable version of OxygenOS later this month to ensure beta testers will receive regular Android security patch update and so on,” said Manu J, Staff Member, Beta Program and Dev Relations of OnePlus.
