OnePlus has released a software update for the OnePlus 3. Before you get too excited, let me just start by saying that this is not the promised Nougat update you are all waiting for. According to the company, Google’s latest version of its OS will hit the recently announced OnePlus 3T and its slightly older discontinued brother by the end of the year.
For now, the OnePlus 3 has been updated to OxygenOS version 3.2.8, which brings a few incremental features to the device. The most interesting one is the addition of 1080p 60fps video recording, hinted at recently by the team in a Reddit AMA.
The update also adds an emergency calling feature for Indian users, which can be triggered by pressing the power button three times, as well as Snapchat optimization — with fixes for video calling and scrolling lags. And as always, general bug fixes that should hopefully make the device run even smoother are included in the latest version of OxygenOS.
If you own a OnePlus 3, keep in mind that the update won’t hit all devices at once. A small percentage of users should receive it today, while the rest will be able to download it over the course of the next few days.
