oneplus 3 color sRGB (1)

Activating sRGB mode on the OnePlus 3 will result in less saturated colors

OnePlus has resumed rolling out an update that addresses some of the criticism raised by early OnePlus 3 adopters.

The original update, bringing version Oxygen OS 3.2.0, started rolling out on July 4, but OnePlus halted it after just a few hours due to unspecified problems that were discovered early in the rollout.

Rather than resuming the 3.2.0 OTA, the Oxygen team decided to add more bug fixes and tweaks and send out a new 3.2.1 OTA.

Here are the features coming in Oxygen 3.2.1, as per a post on the OnePlus forums:

  • Fixed some notification issues
  • Addressed SIM recognition issue
  • Enabled sRGB mode in developer options
  • Improved RAM management
  • Improved GPS performance
  • Enhanced audio playback quality
  • Updated custom icon packs
  • Improved camera quality/functionality
  • Fixed some issues in Gallery
  • Implemented latest Google security patches
  • Fixed bugs in Clock/Music apps

The changelog is very similar to 3.2.0. In fact, the only change that OnePlus added is the “SIM recognition issue.” That said, there may be other bug fixes and optimizations that were too minor to mention in the changelog.

The headline features of the update are the addition of sRGB mode (accessible from Developer Options) that makes the colors on display more muted and – some say – more true to life, and the RAM management tweak, which will presumably allow the phone to keep more apps in its 6GB of memory.

Like with all Oxygen OS updates, the OTA will roll out incrementally over 48 hours or so. That’s assuming no show-stopping bugs occur. Let us know if you’ve got it!
