OnePlus has been one of the biggest names when it comes to the world of smartphone technology. For a relatively new brand, it has achieved a lot, and has made a name for itself internationally. The company is known for providing frequent updates to their smartphones. In a latest update, the OnePlus 3 and OnePlus 3T users are now getting the OxygenOS 4.0.3 update.
OxygenOS 4.0.3 update has already started rolling out for these users. However it does not upgrade the Android OS version. Users will still be at Android 7.0, but various improvements have been added on. It brings forward a ‘smart Wi-Fi switcher’ which automatically switches to data connection in case Wi-Fi connection is consistently poor.
This update also improves the camera of the OnePlus 3 and OnePlus 3T smartphones. Following the OxygenOS 4.0.3, users will now be able to click more ‘stable’ pictures. Photographs taken during the night time too, have been improvised a lot after this update. For those using the phone in India, the update also brings in the Amazon Prime app on to their phones.
The OxygenOS 4.0.3 update also improves audio recordings, says OnePlus. Two major vulnerabilities have also been found on the OnePlus 3 and OnePlus 3T Bootloaders which allow the installation of unverified boot images. These vulnerabilties were found by researcher Roee Hay.
The first of the two vulnerabilities was fixed by OnePlus with the OxygenOS 4.0.2 update. The second vulnerability is a dm-verify vulnerability, and as of this moment it is unclear if the OxygenOS 4.0.3 update has fixed it. The first vulnerability affects OxygenOS users from version 3.2 to 4.0.1. For those users who might be on the older versions of the OS, we strongly recommend updating the OS.
The update comes as an OTA update, and is being rolled out in phases. Not all users are expected to get it immediately, but it is rolling out.
