The second community beta is purely focused on bug fixes, as opposed to the first beta's raft of features.

The OnePlus 3.

We’re happy to see OnePlus commit to Android Pie for the OnePlus 3 and 3T, as Android OEMs don’t generally update three-year-old devices. The company has already issued an Android Pie community beta to these devices, but the firm has since issued a second community beta too.

The second beta, spotted by All About OnePlus, is focused on bug fixes rather than new features though. You can check out the brief changelog below:

Bug fixes

  • Clock timer and stopwatch interface display is incomplete
  • Microphone doesn’t work when earphones are plugged in
  • Crash issues with native message app

The first community beta delivered new features, including a better Do Not Disturb mode, Game Mode 3.0, and a tweaked UI. The first community beta also delivered the April 2019 security patches for your convenience. Still, a final stable release can’t be too far away at this point.

Android Pie’s release on these older phones also comes as OnePlus gears up for the OnePlus 7 series. The company is set to launch the OnePlus 7 and 7 Pro on May 14. The Pro model in particular is expected to be the firm’s biggest generational leap yet, offering an HDR10+ display, pop-up selfie camera, and triple rear camera setup.
