Android 7.1.1 Nougat is fast making its way to many smartphones, with the most recent being the OnePlus 3 and OnePlus 3T. OnePlus smartphone users will welcome the news that the company has pushed out the OxygenOS 4.1.0 update for the two phones.

OnePlus has ended the beta phase of the OxygenOS 4.1.0 and has officially rolled out the over-the-air (OTA) update for its OnePlus 3 and OnePlus 3T smartphones. The update is now available for the users of the two handsets.

Owners of the OnePlus 3 and OnePlus 3T will be pleased with the promptness of the company as the devices benefited from the Android Nougat-based OxygenOS 4.0.3 earlier in February. For the unfamiliar, OxygenOS is the company's very own customized version of Android.

The arrival of the update has been confirmed by the company itself and will bring in its folds several new features and improvements.

"We are starting the incremental roll-out of OxygenOS 4.1.0 (7.1.1) OTA for OnePlus 3T," said a staff member on OnePlus' official blog.

What Are The Features?

The newest update brings a plethora of features to the two phones. The OnePlus 3T and OnePlus 3 will both get updated to Android 7.1.1 Nougat thanks to the roll out. Not only do the two smartphones move to the latest OS, the monthly security patch from Google — the March update — also makes its way to the handsets.

OnePlus 3T and OnePlus 3 users will benefit from the expanding screenshots feature. Moreover, users will soon be able to snap up better pictures of moving subjects with the enhanced blur reduction. That is not all, post the update, users of the two OnePlus smartphones will be able to record videos with greater stability.

The OxygenOS 4.1.0 update, which is based on Android 7.1.1 Nougat, also brings enhanced Wi-Fi connectivity for OnePlus 3 and OnePlus 3T users. The Bluetooth connectivity on the two smartphones also gets improved.

The arrival of the latest update will be welcomed by the smartphone owners. OnePlus is being quite prompt in upgrading its smartphones, and the OnePlus 3 began receiving support for the Google Assistant earlier in March.

Since the OTA update is being pushed out in phases by OnePlus, it could take some time to make its way to your device.

However, users can check for its arrival manually by navigating to Settings > About Device > Software Update > Check for Updates. If the smartphone shows that OxygenOS 4.1.0 is available to download, users can get in on the action. However, before downloading, users should make sure they are connected to a reliable Wi-Fi network and the smartphone has at least 50 percent battery charge.
