OnePlus 3 and 3T can now be updated to latest OxygenOS 5.0.4 July 2018 update. Part of the software support plan, OnePlus is still keeping its older 3 series smartphones on the update roster. Unfortunately, we don’t suppose this will last for long as the brand recently released the last Open Beta build earlier. Further, users are disappointed to still not have received Android 8.1 Oreo for their smartphones. Regardless, this new OxygenOS 5.0.4 has arrived and with it, a lot of changes including latest July 2018 security patch.
OxygenOS is what OnePlus refers to its Android skin overlay. Similar to what we see for apps and other softwares, users can opt for two separate versions. One comes from the Beta channel and as indicated earlier, it has ended for OnePlus 3 / 3T whilst the other is the stable one, detailed in this guide. The stable channels is what your device uses out of the box and is recommended for users who are not tech savvy. Ahead, find attached latest OxygenOS 5.0.4 update package for OnePlus 3 and OnePlus 3T.
Interestingly enough, OnePlus has not only patched in the latest July 2018 security definitions but have also included other changes as well. The prominent ones are front camera quality improvements and bug fixes for certain apps.
