    Hey everyone!

    We are very excited to announce that we are ready to put out the first Open Beta build based on Android 8.0 for the OnePlus 3 and OnePlus 3T devices. Here’s what this update entails.

    As this is a major update we hope that you will fill out our survey on UX & UI here:
    https://goo.gl/forms/Qd8lwejhnD6KNzkM2 .

    • System changes
      • Update to Android O (8.0)
        • Added Picture in Picture
        • Added Auto-fill
        • Added Smart text selection
        • New Quick Settings design
        • September security patch
    • Launcher changes
      • Added Notification dots in Launcher
      • Added OnePlus account login for access to Shot on OnePlus
        • Now able to upload photos directly to Shot on OnePlus through wallpapers
    Known issues:
    • Fingerprint actions may be slower than you are used to.
    • Shortcut to access Google Photos is unavailable
    • Some stability issues with NFC and bluetooth
    • Performance and compatibility of 3rd party apps will continue to be optimized

    If you want to revert back to the last Open Beta N build (OnePlus 3 Open beta 24 or OnePlus 3T Open Beta 15) you will need to flash the special build provided below. Because of the nature of downgrading from a major version, this will cause you to lose partial data.

    Instructions and Info:
    1. The build will wipe app and cache data, but Internal Storage will be saved (ie: pictures and files)
    2. Users who revert their device back to the special build can still OTA update the device to Android O build at a later date.
    3. Steps to revert:
      1. Download special build
      2. Copy to Internal storage
      3. Reboot to recovery Mode to install
        1. Choose “Install from Local”
        2. Choose the downloaded build to install
    4. Special builds for latest Android N Open Beta builds(S3 Link):
      1. OnePlus 3 OBT 24: Here
      2. OnePlus 3T OBT 15: Here
    Please keep in mind that this is beta software. These builds are sometime not as stable as our official OTAs generally are. By installing this update, you accept the potential risks of data loss.

    And please remember to tell us about any bugs you may find using the bug report forums, found here. https://forums.oneplus.net/feedback/

    Please note:
    1. If you have already flashed an Open Beta (you are currently running the latest Open Beta) you will receive this new build as an OTA.
    2. If you ARE NOT running open beta software and would like to, please refer to the flashing instructions and the full ROM found in the downloads page here: http://downloads.oneplus.net/
    3. Once you migrate to the Beta path, you will continue to receive Open Beta OTAs. You will NO LONGER receive the regular Official Stable OTAs.
    4. Moving back to the Official OTA path from the Beta path will require a full install and clean flash (FULL WIPE of all data and cache)
    Make sure to let us know how you feel about the beta builds here too, we are watching.

    Thank you oneplus for oreo update. :) @Adam Krisko @Carl @Shine.Li @Keniette9 @Prinas X.

    Bring google stock OREO layouts, design, UI. Old nougat style layouts, design are totally ugly.

    Give us android 8.1 (oreo)
    Latest is greatest ;)

    https://www.xda-developers.com/android-8-1-oreo-developer-preview-features/ (lots of new changes and features in 8.1)

    After update bugs:

    • Issue with night mode (color issue redish in color) (idk if this bug or not some users said its a real night mode)
    • Touch latency issue
    • Heating while charging
    • Lag
    • Serious Battery Drain (not even getting 3-4 hours of sot, Huge drain on stand by mode)
    • Internet data & wifi connectivity is bad (Slow internet slow speed)
    • Wifi disconnection issue
    • Lost of mobile data (reboot fix)
    • Proximity sensor issues
    • Some users reported bluetooth issues
    • Call screen flickers when we get call, makes it hard to answer the call.
    • Some apps crashes (xender, shareit stuck at connection window) (Bhim aap, HDFC bank app, axis bank app not working properly (India)
    • Setting,status bar layout are not looks like google stock oreo. (we want default layout like google oreo)
    • Phone heats up on long duration calls
    • Camera does not focus
    • switch sim card for internet access is buggy
    • Issue with merge call history (showing old history, wrong info)
    • NFC takes time to open
    And many more....

    • How to use PIP & Notification dots

    1. Picture and picture mode.
    Open you tube from google crome (click on Request to dekstop) then go to full screen mode then press home button. (You tube from chrome and google maps working with Picture and picture mode)

    2. Notification dots

    To get notification dots, try going to Settings -> Apps -> Special Access -> Notification Access -> Enable OnePlus Launcher

    I am happy with this build. We can use this build as a daily driver. CHEERS!
