New OxygenOS community builds are now available for the OnePlus 3 and OnePlus X, bringing the OS' up to versions 3.5.2 and 3.1.1 respectively.
September 15, 2016

OnePlus is pushing out another OxygenOS community build to its OnePlus 3 and OnePlus X smartphones today. Sadly, the update doesn’t upgrade either of the handsets to Android 7.0 Nougat, but the builds do come packed with some new features that customers are sure to find useful.

The OnePlus 3’s latest version of OxygenOS has been bumped up to 3.5.2. This rather large 1.3GB update introduces a “kill all background processes” button in the recents menu, additional directions for first fingerprint configuration, Battery Saver mode optimizations and enhancements, reintroduces the contacts widget in the launcher, and brings an enhanced incoming call notification UI, among a few other changes.

The OnePlus X is now on version 3.1.1, which includes the ability to move apps to a microSD card, improves touch responsiveness, better HFR settings for video capture, and September’s Android security patches, along with a few bug fixes here and there. This update is a tad smaller at 761MB in size.

OnePlus has been determined to push out faster updates to its devices in the closing half of the year. The company even went so far as to merge its Hydrogen and Oxygen operating systems recently in order to improve turn around times. If you’ve already flashed a previous community build, you will receive these updates via an OTA.
