OnePlus 3’s newest Android 7.0 build is here, in beta

OnePlus 3 Review

The popular OnePlus 3 is on the receiving end of yet another update (albeit beta). The phone has just received build 9 based on Android 7.0 Nougat.

This happens to be another stepping stone, so as to say, for OnePlus who plan to release the stable Android 7.0 build for the OnePlus 3 before the end of the year.

Here are the key changes that this new update brings:

  • Added Expanded Screenshots
  • Shelf Design Optimizations
  • General UI Optimizations
  • DPI Optimizations
  • Battery Performance Optimizations
  • Stability and Performance Optimizations
  • General bug fixes

It’s also worth noting that this update doesn’t quite work well with the TWRP recovery, which is why OnePlus recommend using stock recovery.

Owners and interested parties can download the ROM from over at the OnePlus forums. With just a couple of weeks to go for the end of the year, it might just be a good idea to wait for the stable build… unless, of course, you truly want to be an early adopter.
