OnePlus 3/3T get new Notes app and security patch in latest Open Beta

The OnePlus 5T might be OnePlus's latest product, but that doesn't mean the company's stopped supporting its older hardware. After pushing out Android 8.0 Oreo to the OnePlus 3/3T and OnePlus 5, there's now a new OxygenOS Open Beta for the 3/3T that has a pretty lengthy changelog (opens in new tab).

Perhaps the most notable addition with this latest version of the Open Beta is the new OnePlus Notes app. Along with taking regular text-based notes, you can also share notes you take as pictures and add them to the Shelf with the Memo widget.

OnePlus also has a new widget for its Weather app, and there are enhancements when copying and editing for OxygenOS's Quick Clipboard feature.

The File Manager now has a new category for large files and improvements in speed when deleting bigger files, and general System updates include:

  • Added OTG toggle in Quick Settings
  • Added notification when 3rd party apps delete contacts
  • Updated Android security patch to December
  • General bug fixes and improvements

This version of the OxygenOS Open Beta is v29 for the OnePlus 3 and v20 for the 3T, but OnePlus says that it's temporarily stopped the rollout due to a "small issue." The update will be resumed once this is fixed, and we'll update the article accordingly when that happens.

  • Oneplus, sneaking in the bloatware. Either way I'm not seeing it yet in the UK or Germany.
  • Switched to Paranoid Android some weeks ago. Couldn't be happier, snap quality is on par with OOS or even better, battery life more consistent and no bloatware/weird services running.
    Only bad note, it's still on Nougat
  • This! Paranoid Android feels like stock compared to OOS. i tried going back to OOS for Oreo but missed Paranoid a lot. went back to Aospa and cant be happier. waiting for their Oreo update. should be kickass
  • @kra82: u can get oreo straight away, just like me.
    I got it more than a month ago.
  • They never released it. They had some problem and locked the thread on their official forum.
  • 29 is released now
