A new OxygenOS Open Beta update has started hitting the OnePlus 3 and 3T smartphones. Arriving as version 28 and 19, respectively, the update brings a bag full of changes, related to launcher, gallery, contacts, and system.
Specifically, the update adds support for aptX/aptX HD as well as includes UI fixes for Quick Settings. Other system-level changes are mostly optimizations related to WiFi and battery.
Moving on, while launcher-related changes are all optimizations, those related to gallery include new photo map to view photos by location and some UI enhancements. As for changes to contacts, the update adds emergency information (ICE) to your personal information.
Oh, and yes, the change-log also mention upgraded Android security patch, should be for the month of November.
Ah that explains it. I saw this post and though like "dafuq? This was on the 3t from the start, how is this news" But thanks for the explanation :)
OnePlus never fails to impress. One of the few companies who actually care about audio quality. Just plain weird the whole industry is removing the headphone jack and NOT promoting better bluetooth audio like AptX...
Thanks! This is a very useful answer. It does imply that there might be conflicts with the Oreo stock AptX profile support and the Qualcomm-supplied drivers, and now they solved it.
