OnePlus has been consistent in releasing updates to its OxygenOS Open Beta platform for both OnePlus 3 and OnePlus 3T. The company publishes updates weekly for both smartphones and now comes the sixth beta of OxygenOS for OnePlus 3T.
However, although the numbering or naming of both software packages is different for OnePlus 3 and OnePlus 3T, both flagships receive the same improvements. That’s why while the previous update of OxygenOS Open Beta 5 focused mainly on bug fixes and increasing the battery life of both devices, the latest version of the beta brings with it a lot of changes in the appearance or user interface of the OnePlus 3T and OnePlus 3 smartphones.
News of the sixth beta of OxygenOS for the OnePlus 3T
To begin, the dialer and the incoming call interface will be changed with the new OxygenOS update for the OnePlus 3T. Now users can now swipe up to answer incoming calls and swipe down to reject them. In addition the dialer of the terminal also undergoes an interesting facelift.
This update also adds an updated user interface to native Messages, Settings, and Contacts applications. Thus the message app and settings of the OnePlus 3T and OnePlus 3 also receive a new expandable action bar that will be expanded with different developments in successive OxyxenOS betas for both smartphones.
With this update, OnePlus has optimized the notification system that now alerts when applications are using a lot of battery power. This is similar to what we can see in other Android-based forks like Huawei’s EMUI or Xiaomi’s MIUI. In addition to this, the update offers optimizations of Bluetooth connectivity and improvements to the night mode, along with the classic bug fixes that accompany this type of updates.
As you can imagine, the sixth beta of OxygenOS for the OnePlus 3T is only available to users who have previously installed an open beta. The stable version will be released in few weeks via OTA update.
For those who wish to switch to the Open Beta platform can do so by going to the official website of OnePlus, although before installing any software users will have to factory reset their smartphone to erase all existing data.
