OnePlus 3 and 3T Received Oxygen OS 4.1.7 Update

Recently, OnePlus made an announcement that their products, OnePlus 3/3T will be receiving their last major Android update which will be Android 8 Oreo. However, that does not mean that all updates will stop there. The company promised its users that it will continue the release of security patch updates in the future and OnePlus is starting to fulfill that promise with the version of the operating system, Oxygen OS 4.1.7.

First things first, the update responsible for bringing OnePlus 3/3T at the August security patch level  puts the two models slightly ahead of the OnePlus 5 version when it comes to security patch status. The OnePlus 5 is still on the July 2017 patch. Oxygen OS 4.1.7 is a much expected update, since it brings battery optimization for a better device performance, as well as making the whole experience of navigating the interface a much improved one.

Furthermore, Carl Pei, who is a co-founder of the OnePlus Company, stated that the update includes touch latency improvements, which is one of the most common problems with the two mobile phones. This update also focuses on fixing the bugs that users usually encounter; issues likes Oxygen OS’ App Locker shielding the applications with a password or PIN code before accessing them, as well as an exploit that bypasses the App Locker.

Other bug fixes include the calls which are no longer unintentionally routed to the speaker by certain third-party applications, as well as videos no longer having sound channel issues and errors. What is quite unusual is the removal of the Hangouts application from the OnePlus 3/3T if the user never updated it. Therefore, if the users want to keep the app, they will need to update it before the latest OS update.

The Oxygen 4.1.7 update is expected to roll out and hit the users’ devices over the next few days, so they will experience an improved performance of their devices soon.
