News About OnePlus Phones Running On Android 7.0 Nougat

According to reports, there are 4 rumors about the OnePlus phones. The first rumor is that before the end of the year or on December 15, the OnePlus 3 and 3T will receive the Android 7.0 Nougat update. The second rumor is that the OnePlus One and OnePlus 2 will receive the Android 7.0 Nougat update next year. The third rumor is that the OnePlus 2 will get the Android 7.0 Nougat update the same day as the OnePlus 3 and 3T. The last and final rumor is that the OnePlus One will not get the Android 7.0 Nougat update, because it is more than 2 years old and runs on Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 chipset, which is said not to be compatible with the Android 7.0 Nougat's Vulcan API.

Problems Face BY OnePlus 3 and OnePlus 3T Users

If you're an OnePlus 3 and OnePlus 3T user, chances are you've been experiencing the touch latency issue, especially for the OnePlus 3 users that have been waiting for months now for OnePlus to fix it. About the "fix" part that the OnePlus 3 owners are still waiting for, OnePlus Co-Founder Carl Pei posted on Twitter that the owner will have to wait a little longer, because their focus right now is the Android 7.0 Nougat. However, some say that there might be a way to "lessen" the issues that the OnePlus 3 and OnePlus 3T is having by updating their phones with the Android 7.0.

There Is An Available Android 7.0 Nougat?

Apparently, there is already a beta version of the Android 7.0 Nougat available in the internet right now. But before you buy, keep in mind that this is beta version, meaning there will bugs and lack of certain features such as breaking the ability to use Android Pay contactless payments on the device, and stability issues that are linked to the new beta. With that in mind, here are the two links if you're interested - Link one and Link two.

What Does The New Android 7.0 Nougat Do?

The Android 7.0 nougat is said to have the features of ability to split-screen between any two apps (finally, you can play games while watching videos). It boasts a redesign notifications shade and dramatically improved battery saving technology. It also includes a redesigned notification design, overhauled Settings menu, a multi-window view, direct replies from within the notifications, new status bar icons, quick launch ability for third-party applications, and improved shelf customization. Users can also find a new status bar icon options, alongside a quick launch feature for third-party apps and added customization options for the Smartphone's "Shelf" feature.

Writer's Perspective

The decision to download and install the beta version is your choice. However, I advise you not to download it and wait for the full version instead.
