OnePlus 3 gets another small Android 7.0 Nougat beta update


OnePlus has just released its latest Android 7.0 Nougat beta update for the OnePlus 3. This is the 10th such update for the smartphone, with its Android-based OxygenOS, and it appears to be a pretty minor one, with only one new feature as well as some bug fixes and optimizations.

According to the changelog, the latest beta update adds the Data Saver feature to the OnePlus 3. Two bug fixes are mentioned as well. One of them solves the problem with the lock screen clock issue when the phone is in portrait mode, and the other fixes a bug with the phone reverting to its default theme after a reboot.

Finally, the changelog states that optimizations have been put in for overall system performance, Wi-Fi performance, battery consumption, the phone’s fingerprint unlocking speed and the quality of expanded screenshots. This feature gives OnePlus 3 owners a way to screenshot a longer, scrollable page rather than a regular screenshot.

OnePlus has already stated it plans to release the final Nougat OTA update for both the OnePlus 3 and the recently launched OnePlus 3T by the end of the year. However, with just a few days away from the end of 2016, it is looking more likely that the company could miss that deadline.
