No Comments on OxygenOS Android Oreo Open Beta for the OnePlus 3 and OnePlus 3T Released!

With new features, open betas and security updates (for the most part),

OnePlus have been showing they were serious in their dedication to updates

since they merged their disparate development teams.


Now OnePlus have gone even further, and Open Beta 25 for the OnePlus 3 and Open Beta 16 for the OnePlus 3T are bringing Android Oreo. The OnePlus 2, infamous for being promised an update to Android Nougat that never came, hurt the company’s reputation with the enthusiast market it was trying to entice. The company then further risked its reputation when it promised the OnePlus 3/T an upgrade to Android Nougat before the end of 2016, releasing it hours before the coming of the new year (though interestingly, still ahead of much of the competition). By delivering the Open Beta, they ultimately did technically fulfill their promise.
