One­Plus 3T and 3 Receive Nougat Update


After multiple beta updates in the previous month, OnePlus has finally launched Oxygen OS 4, for its 3 and 3T device users, which is based on Google’s latest Android 7 Nougat.

Although the flagship killer had plans to update the both the devices with a Nougat update in December 2016, it seems like a fitting new year’s gift for the owners of the device.

It is worth noting that users based in India still haven’t received an official Oxygen OS 4 update from OnePlus.

“2016 has been an important year for OnePlus. Not only did we release a product that we are really proud of in the OnePlus 3, but we made it even better last month when we upgraded to the OnePlus 3T. We also have been working very hard on getting software updates out more consistently and more frequently,” the company stated.

The company also mentioned that this is an ‘incremental roll out‘ and they will also try to deliver it to as many devices as soon as possible — only a small percentage of users are getting the update today.

If you’re in a hurry to receive the update, try changing your location using a VPN service — and you might just get it quicker than your friends — like we did by changing our device’s location to Canada. (See screenshot below)

Features Added in the Update

  • Multi-window view

OnePlus 3T is currently available on Amazon, priced at Rs.29,999 for 64GB variant and Rs.34,999 for the 128GB variant. A soft gold coloured version of the 3T is also going on sale on Amazon on January 5, 2017, 2 pm onwards.

GT connected its OnePlus 3T device to a VPN server Monday night and received the update.

The OnePlus 3’s 64GB variant is available for a price of Rs.27,999 on Amazon. Last month, Flipkart also put up the OnePlus 3 on sale for Rs.18,999, but the company held a disclaimer against the devices sold there and mentioned that OnePlus devices are exclusively sold on Amazon.

The Nougat update helps both the devices serve their users better, and the company is inclined on keeping their customers happy, so further updates for the devices shouldn’t be an issue too.
