OnePlus 3 and 3T Android Pie beta update released

After a leak, OnePlus has officially released the first Android Pie Community update for the OnePlus 3 and 3T smartphones, as it had promised last year. OnePlus 3 and 3T were launched back in 2016 running Android 6.0.1 (Marshmallow). This is the third major Android update for the phones after Android Nougat in 2017 and Android Oreo update last year. The company has already guaranteed Android security updates for the phones till November 2019.

Since this is the first beta update, you need to install the Community Beta build manually by downloading the OTA ROM for the OnePlus 3 or the ROM for the OnePlus 3T, place it in the internal storage root folder Open Settings -> System update -> Click top right setting icon and Choose Local update to update.

The company said that Boot Loader should be locked before installing the ROM. It added that those who download the Community Beta build will get OTA update when the stable build is released. Those who are on the Open Beta will have to update the phone using from the recovery  which will wipe the the data.

Hope we can expect the stable build before OnePlus 7 launch next month. We can’t expect Android Q for the OnePlus 3 series, but we should hear more details about Android Q update plans for other OnePlus phones at the event. Check out the complete changelog below.
