OnePlus recently announced that the OnePlus 3 will be discontinued, but software updates and support will continue to be provided. And as promised, the company is now rolling out a OnePlus 3 software update with new features and several bug fixes.
OnePlus 3 Software Update
After releasing the all new OnePlus 3T, the company announced that the six-month old OnePlus 3 will no longer be manufactured. However, software updates for the OnePlus 3 will still be provided alongside updates for the new 3T, according to Android Authority.
OnePlus promised users that the Android 7.0 Nougat update for the OnePlus 3 will be available by the end of this year. However, this latest software update for the OnePlus 3 is not the Nougat update that users have been waiting for. This update brings a few new features and fixes bugs that have been discovered in the older updates.
Users should not lose hope though as it was said that both the OnePlus 3T and the original OnePlus 3 will share the same update cycle, which is good news for users of both the devices.
OxygenOS 3.2.8 Update: New Features
The OxygenOS 3.2.8 update is an incremental update and will be available to all OnePlus 3 users over the next week. Several users have already received the update and have noticed a couple of changes.
First, the update allows users to record video at 1080p 60FPS, which should result in smoother playback. For users in India, the update adds the emergency calling feature that can be activated by pressing the power button three times. OnePlus has also optimized the Snapchat app to fix bugs related to lag and video calls.
Apart from these improvements and changes, the OnePlus 3 software update also increases system stability and fixes other bugs, as per OnePlus. The OxygenOS 3.2.8 is an over-the-air update and requires a stable Wi-Fi connection, which is expected to reach the rest of OnePlus 3 devices in the next few days.
