OnePlus has started rolling out OxygenOS 5.0.1 update to the OnePlus 3 and OnePlus 3T handsets. This update is based on Android 8.0 Oreo, and it follows the OxygenOS 5.0 update which was released back in November, but was later stopped by OnePlus due to some bugs that needed to be ironed out. That being said, the OnePlus 3 and 3T are now receiving a new update which is bringing some new features to the two phones, along with a new security patch, read on if you’re interested.
This new update was published on the company’s official website, and the changelog says that this update is adding support for aptX HD on both the OnePlus 3 and OnePlus 3T. In addition to that, the Wi-Fi hotspot device manager has been added as well, and the same can be said for ‘Adaptive Mode) screen calibration. This update will also update your OnePlus 3 / OnePlus 3T handset to the latest security patch (for December), while the update also brings a number of bug fixes and stability improvements. That is more or less it as far as the changelog is concerned, and many of you have probably already received this update, as the announcement went live on OnePlus’ website a couple of days ago. If you haven’t received this update yet, don’t fret, as it is a staged rollout, and not everyone received it at the same time, but if you’re not willing to wait, you can always install a VPN application from the Play Store, set it to ‘Canada’, and the update should be available to you straight away. Every global user of the OnePlus 3 and 3T is getting the very same update, so downloading and installing this update with some help from a VPN app will not change anything as far as the software version is concerned.
The OnePlus 3 and 3T were announced back in 2016, those two phones were the only smartphones that OnePlus introduced in 2016, and they were both the company’s flagships at the time they were released. These two phones look the same, even though the OnePlus 3T is a bit more powerful, but they share most of the specs as well.
