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)
