Back in July OnePlus announced Android Pie update for OnePlus 6, OnePlus 5/5T, and as a bonus edition for OnePlus 3/3T as well. The OnePlus 6 and OnePlus 5/5T got the updates back in 2018, OnePlus 3/3T are still in a waiting queue for an official step ahead for the update. Now after 8 months from the announcement, OnePlus made a step forward in regards to it.
Manu J. (GPO Manager at OnePlus), announced Android Pie based Closed Beta testing for both OnePlus 3/3T. This is happening because of the CTS failure of releasing Open Beta update based on Pie. In this Closed Beta, a limited number of users can test a very early version of Android Pie, and they need to give feedbacks of any bugs found in the update. Users need to flash the ROM, which may require clean flash also. And very limited number of users will be selected on random basis.
Do note that as this is Closed Beta update, a lot of bugs and instability will be there, so keep that in mind before flashing the ROM. OnePlus advices not to flash it if you are using your OnePlus 3/3T as a primary smartphone. If you have a OnePlus 3/3T and want to try out the Pie, than head over to this link and register yourself for the Closed Beta program. Entries will shut down on 23rd March, 02:00 PM GMT (07:30 PM IST).
So that’s all the information we have as of now. As I use my OnePlus 3 as my primary device and I don’t have secondary option, I didn’t registered for this Closed Beta. & I advice you all to do the same, unless it’s your secondary device. What are your thoughts on this Closed Beta releasing after 8 months? Don’t you think OnePlus should have given stable OTA by this much time? Let us know in the comment section below. Also stay tuned with us for more information.
