OnePlus Releases OxygenOS 4.5 OTA For OnePlus 3 and OnePlus 3T
OnePlus has just announced the release of OxtgenOS 4.5 OTA for the OnePlus 3 and OnePlus 3T. The new update brings in a number of new additions to the stable OxygenOS for these devices, as well as various system stability and battery improvements.
Lift up Display, a feature previously limited to the OxygenOS beta channel has now finally made it to the stable version with this new update. That means users can now peek at their notifications simply by lifting the device up from the surface, without actually waking up the device by double tapping the screen or pressing the power button. The new update also adds a Gaming Do Not Disturb mode to help gamers better focus on their gameplay by effectively blocking out heads-up notifications and sounds. This last addition has been in the stable ROM of the OnePlus 5 since the device arrived, so it’s nice to see it get to the hands of OnePlus 3 and 3T owners.
Other notable changes include the ability to show network speed in the status bar, scheduled night mode, redesigned calling UI, a redesigned photo editor in Gallery and new secure box feature in the default File Manager application. Again, these are the features beta users or OnePlus 5 owners are already used to, but it’s nice to see them come to the device.
Unfortunately, the new update doesn’t seem to include the latest security patches from Google, leaving both devices vulnerable to recent vulnerabilities as they are still on the August patch level. On the plus side, this update does not bring the new bootanimation that is seemingly universally despised.
OnePlus has already begun rolling out the OxygenOS 4.5 OTA to the OnePlus 3/3T. If you’re sporting either a OnePlus 3 or OnePlus 3T you should be receiving this new update in the coming days. However, as always is the case with staged OTA roll-outs, it may take some time to reach all devices.
