OnePlus' new OxygenOS Open Beta release brings improvements and a new launcher

OnePlus has had a fairly busy month, releasing two versions of its 3T handset, the colette edition and later, the Midnight Black edition. The firm also updated its OxygenOS for the 3 and 3T to Android 7.1.1. Now, a new update has been released for those in the Open Beta, that brings improvements, small additions, and revamps the launcher into something reminiscent of the Google's Pixel offering.

The full list of changes to the OxygenOS Open Beta are below:

  • All new launcher, added support for shortcuts on 7.1.1
  • Redesigned app drawer
  • Redesigned UI for launcher settings
  • Added status bar icon option to display real time network speed
  • Added Notification Denoising
  • Added Gaming Do Not Disturb mode
  • Added automatic Night Mode
  • Added Secure Box for file encryption
  • Optimized touch latency
  • Optimized camera EIS for videos
  • Improved contacts management with linking and merge functions
  • Added quick pay option for India
  • Bug fixes and general improvements

If you'd like to try these builds, you will need to head to the source links below, and flash your device. Once you are on the beta track, any future updates, like the one issued above, will automatically arrive to your device via an over-the-air (OTA) update. Whenever flashing a device, make sure to back up your personal information as it will be lost, and you will be doing this procedure at your own risk.

Currently, you can pick up the original OnePlus 3T with 64GB of storage for $439, or you can also opt for the Midnight Black variant with 128GB of storage priced at $479.
