OnePlus 3 Nougat beta

OnePlus is rolling out a new Android 7.0 Nougat build for the OnePlus 3. The official Nougat release is slated for the end of the year, but OnePlus is offering a preview of the changes to come with the Open Beta program. The first beta build for the device was made available at the end of last month, and today's update includes stability and UI optimizations, as well as a new expanded screenshot feature.

Here's what's new in OxygenOS Open Beta 9:

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

You'll be able to sideload the build by downloading it from OnePlus' forums, which will enable you to get further updates. However, if you're on the beta channel, you won't receive updates for stable OxygenOS releases. You'll have to flash your phone to an official release to continue receiving updates, a process that involves wiping all data on your device.
