OxygenOS 5.0.4 Rolling Out To OnePlus 3/3T With July Security Patch, Improved Image Quality For Front Camera & More


The OnePlus 3 and OnePlus 3T are nearing the end of their software update cycle. OnePlus released the final Open Beta build for the two smartphones a couple of days back, and now the Chinese company is rolling out a stable update for its 2016 flagships. OxygenOS 5.0.4 includes the July security patch, improvements to the camera, and fixes for third-party apps.

Here's the changelog:

Changelog


System
• Updated Android security patch to 2018.7

Camera
• Improved image quality for the front camera
• Fixed manual ISO setting issue of 3rd party camera apps

Third-Party Apps
• Fixed parallel WhatsApp crash issue
• Fixed front camera zoom-in issues for Snapchat


If you will go to the 'About phone' section, you will find the Android security patch level mentioned as '1 June 2018'. OnePlus has confirmed that this is a typo, and the July security patch is indeed present.

Usually, OTA updates from OnePlus can be obtained instantly by using a VPN application and setting the country to Canada or Germany. OnePlus has explicitly stated that the VPN method may not work with this update. However, several users on the OnePlus forums confirmed that the VPN method was in fact working.

OnePlus will be posting the download file of OxygenOS 5.0,4 after the global rollout of the update is completed. Contrary to our expectations, OnePlus won't be releasing any software update for those using the final Open Beta. These users will instead have to manually install OxygenOS 5.0.4 after OnePlus posts the flashable file.

As we have previously described, it is unlikely that the OnePlus 3/3T will get the promised Oreo 8.1. OnePlus' apparent withdrawal from its promise has left the OP3/3T users disappointed. Addressing user concerns, David Y, Community Manager on the OnePlus forums, wrote:

Hey everyone, this won't be the last update for OnePlus 3 and 3T users. We fully understand you guys are eagerly waiting for some big changes. Please be patient and relax, everything will be alright. We will share more details very soon.

This might bring some hope for the Android 8.1 update, but keep in mind that OnePlus backed out of the Nougat update for the OnePlus 2 and OnePlus X.
