OnePlus 3 getting Android Nougat beta update this month

OnePlus 3(₹ 7389 at amazon), the latest flagship from the Chinese technology startup is getting a taste of Android Nougat this month. The company plans to release a community build of Nougat to beta testers before a full rollout.

Android 7.0 Nougat is the latest mobile operating system from search giant Google. With Nougat, Google adopted a change of heart and made it available in the form of developer beta months ahead of official release. The first device to feature Nougat out of the box was not a Google device but LG's V20, showing the directions for the mobile OS.

OnePlus' head of software, Brian Yoon has confirmed to Engadget that the smartphone will get a Nougat beta this month. Once the flaws have been ironed out, the OS will be made available as an OTA update to all users by the end of the year.

Earlier this year, OnePlus announced plans to bring its HydrogenOS and OxygenOS teams together on order to deliver updates faster. OnePlus users, in the past, have addressed complaints against the company's ability to deliver timely software updates.

Ealier this week, LG started delivering Nougat update for its G5 flagship users in Korea. Following suit, fellow Korean competitor and world's biggest smartphone maker Samsung also announced beta release of Nougat for its 2016 flagship Galaxy S7. Motorola has also started rolling out Android 7.0 Nougat for its Moto Z and Moto G4 lineup of devices.

Nougat is currently running on nearly 0.3 percent Android devices and the number is set to grow exponentially once OEMs like OnePlus and Xiaomi start pushing the update.
