The OnePlus 3 and 3T smartphones have now started to receive the OxygenOS 4.1.7 update based on Android 7.1.1 Nougat, as confirmed by OnePlus on the company forum. It’s arriving as an OTA (over-the-air) update to a limited amount of users today and will start a broader rollout to more units in the next few days.
Therefore, it may be a while before it appears for all units of these OnePlus phones, although users can always try checking for it manually through the Settings app on their handsets. The update brings August security patch, bug fixes and system optimizations.
OxygenOS 4.1.7 Features And Changelogs
The latest update offers plenty of bug resolutions, such as a fix for a sound channel error during video capture, or for an issue where making a phone call could lead to the display being turned on with the screen off gesture. Further fixes are for a rendering issue specific to the Indian Kannada language, an app locker problem involving some third-party apps, and more.
Further more fixes and changes are listed below.
- Enhanced system fluidity
- Battery optimizations
- Android security patch updated to August
- Sound channel error while recording videos
- Call is routed to speaker accidentally by some 3rd party apps

However, the devices will continue to receive Android security patches, at least for the foreseeable future.
