It was disappointing to see that the OnePlus 3T wasn’t running Nougat out of the box, but a new update has brought the device a step closer towards getting the latest software. The OxygenOS 3.5.4 build which is live now equips the handset with several performance optimizations.
Through a forum post, OnePlus has made it clear that the upgrade kicks in improvements for T-Mobile network in the US. There are even some optimizations for reducing lags when the battery is below 5 percent.
This update for the recently launched 3T even brings with it improved Bluetooth connectivity for Mazda cars and a better Battery Saving Mode. Under the latter, the GPS and orientation preferences will now be restored when the Battery Saving Mode is shut down. One more optimization is aimed towards a flashlight usability issue in WhatsApp.
Here’s a neat look at the specs of the new OnePlus 3T:
– Display: 5.5-inch Optic AMOLED, 1080 x 1920 pixels
– OS: Android Marshmallow-based OxygenOS (upgradable to Nougat)
– CPU: Quad core Snapdragon 821

It was only yesterday that the OnePlus 3T went on sale in India via Amazon at Rs 29999. This is quite an affordable price tag, considering the kind of specifications it boasts of.
The OxygenOS 3.5.4 update for the OnePlus 3T is being rolled out in the form of an OTA, and should reach your device in the coming days.
