OnePlus 3 and 3T are Getting Android 7.1.1 Nougat Stable Version and March Android Security Patch

OnePlus 3T

After a few weeks of testing, OnePlus 3 and OnePlus 3T users can now start downloading and installing the stable version of the OxygenOS 4.1.0, which brings the latest Android 7.1.1 Nougat update to the two phones.

On the last day of 2016, OnePlus managed to avail the OTA updates to Android 7.0 Nougat for both phones and a few days later, the beta program was opened up for willing users of the phones. After periods of testing, the Chinese OEM is now happy to start rolling out the new Android 7.1.1 Nougat to non-beta users of both OnePlus 3 and 3T.

Since the update is still based on Android Nougat, it doesn’t bring anything new other than a few additions as well as refinements here and there. You will also get a bunch of bug fixes that were discovered in the initial OxygenOS 4.0 alongside the latest Android security patch for the month of March 2017.

While Google Nexus devices that were updated from Android 7.0 Nougat to v7.1.1 received quite a number of interesting changes, the customized OxygenOS 4.1 doesn’t bring a lot. In fact, the only notable addition we could see is the new and more gender diverse emojis. Still, there are a few other interesting things to come by, for instance, the expanded screenshots where you can now scroll in order to take longer screenshots.

As far as improvements are concerned, OnePlus 3 and 3T users can expect better video stabilization, reduced motion blur when trying to capture moving objects, better Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity and other general bug fixes.

Since the update is coming in over the air, you’ll have to be a little patient because not all OnePlus 3 and 3T handsets will receive it at once. Instead, it is happening gradually, which could take days before everyone actually gets the OTA notification. Still, you can try checking it out via Settings>About device>System updates and if you are lucky, you can do a manual installation.
