OnePlus 3 & 3T is going to get the Android 7.1.1 Soon

One of the better things about being a small but successful smartphone maker is that you are able to iterate over smartphone updates more quickly than a giant, slow-moving companies (like Samsung). OnePlus has, so far, proven itself to indeed be that agile and the latest OxygenOS beta for the OnePlus 3 and the OnePlus 3T reinforces that image. In addition to bringing Android 7.1.1, the beta also teases the features that will welcome users when the final release starts rolling out.

After its ugly and very public divorce from Cyanogen Inc. OnePlus started developing its own in-house custom ROM, which it dubbed OxygenOS. Although mostly based on the Android Open Source Project (AOSP) code, there has always been opportunities for OnePlus to add value to the otherwise plain Android experience. Some of those value-added features are coming to the OnePlus 3 and 3T in the next OxygenOS release.

For example, there’s a Gaming “Do Not Disturb” mode that locks the capacitive navigation buttons during play. This prevents accidentally triggering them, which often happens in games that are played in landscape orientation. An automatic night mode is also being added so you won’t have to manually toggle the setting at night or in the morning.

Here is the full changelog for Open Beta 13 for OnePlus 3 and Open Beta 4 for OnePlus 3T:
  • All new launcher added support for shortcuts on 7.1.1
