OnePlus 3 & 3T Gets Better With OxygenOS 4.1.7 Update

OnePlus 3

OnePlus has rolled out OxygenOS 4.1.7 update for the flagship OnePlus 3 and 3T smartphones. After the installation of the new OxygenOS 4.1.7 update, the handsets will be refreshed with August security patch alongside performance related improvements.

The OxygenOS 4.1.7 update is being pushed via OTA in an incremental manner. Hence, it will take several days for the new update to hit your handsets. To begin with, only a small number of OnePlus 3/3T customers will receive the update immediately after the rollout followed by a larger cross section of users. We expect that users will receive the update message notification within two weeks.

In addition to August security patch, the OxygenOS 4.1.7 update also offers several bug fixes and improvements. The update brings in enhanced system fluidity coupled with optimizations for Bluetooth and battery.

Talking about the bug fixes, the OxygenOS 4.1.7 update resolves the sound channel error while recording videos. It also fixes an error where a call is routed to speaker accidentally by third-party apps. Moreover, the display is activated by screen off gesture while performing a phone call. The latest update also resolves an error associated with rendering in the Kannada language. If you work with the Kannada language with OnePlus 3 and 3, you should install the latest update.

Previously, users have reported about the problem with app locker that is caused by third-party apps. The OxygenOS 4.1.7 software module resolves this error. Moreover, OnePlus also removed the Hangouts app for all those customers who have never updated it on Google Play Store. It is possible to retain Hangouts if you update it prior to the upgrade to the latest OxygenOS.
