OnePlus has been a brand that has really impressed us over the past few years. The brand is rather new in the markets but has been massively popular. Their flagship-killer smartphones have been very impressive, and this year they’ve got their updates game on point too. OnePlus had promised the Android Nougat OS update before 2016 ended, and it started rolling out on the 31st of December. They have now begun rolling out the OxygenOS 4.1 OS update which brings the Android 7.1.1 Nougat OS to the users of OnePlus 3 and OnePlus 3T.

OnePlus has become the first OEM to start rolling out the Android 7.1.1 Nougat OS update for their devices. So far the update is only available on Google Pixel and Pixel XL, and the latest generation of Nexus smartphones. With the OxygenOS 4.1 OS update, OnePlus has proved yet again they are living up to all user demands!

The update is rolling out over the air, and will soon arrive for all the users. It might take quite some time before all the users get it, but it is comforting to know that it has started. While the Android 7.1.1 Nougat OS rollout begins, Pixel and Nexus smartphones might soon get the Android 7.1.2 update. Current speculations indicate it would begin on the 3rd of April.

The OxygenOS 4.1 OS update is an OTA update and cannot be installed manually as of now as the image files have not been made available.
