OnePlus is a OEM which constantly gives Beta updates to their OnePlus 3 and 3T users. Last year they provided the Beta update for nougat in November end, which was very early for other OEMs. Now this year also people are expecting the update this early. But seems like OnePlus is rolling out the 8.0 Oreo update for OnePlus 3.
This is the update for Closed Beta program on OnePlus 3. This Closed Beta program is only for few selected users chosen by OnePlus itself. The update size is 799mb and the changelog only shows that it’s Android 8.0.0 , nothing else. As of now this update is only rolled out to OnePlus 3, not to OnePlus 3T and 5. It’s nice to see that OnePlus hasn’t forgotten their more and an year old device. But there are possibilities that this update is being rolled out to OnePlus 3T as well because we got the leak only of OnePlus 3, and the Closed Beta users aren’t allowed to leak anything about the update. So the person who actually leaked this might get into some troubles. Also we are expecting this Oreo update to arrive for Open Beta by the end of September or early October.
So that’s all the information we have as of now. This is a good sign by OnePlus that they are trying to rollout the update this quick, even before many tier one brands. Also we hope that this update will reach to all compatible OnePlus devices with stable Oxygen OS very soon. Stay tuned with us for more information.
