OnePlus has rolled out the OxygenOS 4.0 beta version of the Android 7.0 Nougat to its OnePlus 3, and users should receive it in the next days. The beta update is expected to bring features such as direct Reply, multi-window view (some apps may not support this feature) and expanding notifications, but the Chinese company has also revamped the launcher, and users will have access to Google search by swiping up, while when swiping down, they will open notifications.
The OxygenOS 4.0 beta will also come with five different settings, allowing users to adjust the screen density in the Settings> Display> Display Size. Unfortunately, according to the benchmarking tests, it seems that the OnePlus 3 has some issues with stability and performance, although the OS beta comes with significant improvements over the Marshmallow-based Oxygen OS 3.5.
However, the gaming experience was not affected, but the Android Pay gave an error.
We remind you that OnePlus has recently released the OnePlus 3T, which is an upgraded version of the OnePlus 3 flagship, and it came with a larger battery, increased internal storage and a front camera with a higher resolution. This handset is also waiting to be upgraded to Android 7.0 Nougat, but for now, users are settling for the OxygenOS 3.5.4 update which comes with optimizations for US-TMO Network, reduced lag when the battery is below 5% + optimized battery saving mode, optimized Bluetooth connectivity for Mazda cars and a fix for the flashlight usability issue in WhatsApp.
If you’re not an OnePlus 3 owner yet, but you’re tempted to buy this flagship, here are its specs: a 5.5-inch Optic AMOLED Full HD screen, a Qualcomm MSM8996 Snapdragon 820 chipset with a quad-core (2×2.15 GHz Kryo & 2×1.6 GHz Kryo) processor backed by 6GB of RAM, an internal memory of 64GB which doesn’t support expansion, a primary camera of 16MP with phase detection autofocus, OIS and LED flash, a secondary camera of 8MP and a battery of 3000mAh, non-removable.
