OnePlus 3 and OnePlus 3T receive Android 7.1.1 via OTA. If at the beginning of the year we knew that OnePlus updated its flagships with Android 7.0 Nougat after a long phase of tests with different Beta versions, today the Asians release a new update. It is an OTA that brings the latest version of Google’s operating system, Android 7.1.1 Nougat to both OnePlus 3 and OnePlus 3T. It appears in the form of OxygenOS 4.1.0 and with interesting improvements that affect the camera and wireless connectivity, although there are more details that we summarize below.
If we have something to praise about OnePlus is its ability to adapt. The Chinese were forced to break the deal with Cyanogen Inc, which provided Cyanogen OS for their devices. The break supposed to stop offering one of the most desired ROMs by Android lovers. In short, it was losing one of the attractions presented in the first two generations of the OnePlus smartphone. However, the company has reacted by offering its own firmware, OxygenOS.
The experience for owners of the OnePlus 3 and OnePlus 3T is unbeatable, at least for now. After a brief test phase, with a beta of the latest Nougat in late February, the terminals have started today to receive OxygenOS 4.1.0, an OTA update with Android 7.1.1.
Changes that integrates Android 7.1.1 for the OnePlus 3 and 3T
Although the update released by OnePlus mainly has bug fixes as a good maintenance version, it also includes many new features. It includes the latest security patch for Android, corresponding to the month of March, but also because they optimize critical points of both smartphones.
Namely, according to the official forums of OnePlus, Android 7.1.1 optimizes the operation of the wireless connectivity of the terminals with special attention to WiFi and Bluetooth connections. A key point if we take into account the complaints of users in this regard.
Also added is a new mode of extended screen captures to facilitate captures beyond what is visible on the display.
However, perhaps the most emphasis has placed by the manufacturer is on the camera. OxygenOS 4.1.0 focuses especially on the optimization of photos captured in motion, those susceptible to “blurs”. In the same way improvements have been made to the stabilization system in video recording.
