A OnePlus staff member has posted in the company’s forums regarding a new OxygenOS Open Beta. The version that will appear as v23 if you have a OnePlus 3, or v14 shall you have a OnePlus 3T, brings a few new things and updates to those enrolled in the pre-release program.
First off, it’s worth mentioning that the default color profile has changed to more closely resemble the alternative sRGB calibration. Depending on how you like your display, this can be good or bad news, since vibrant colors may not be as vibrant as they were before. New in the update is the addition of “Shot on OnePlus,” which can also be found on the newer OnePlus 5 smartphone. With it, photos are watermarked with OnePlus branding automatically, though the feature can be turned off under settings.
Also present in the update, as usual, are your typical bug fixes, performance enhancements and small visual changes. A few design alterations have been made in OnePlus apps such as Clock, Contacts and a few others. OnePlus also states that the stability of parallel apps has been improved, as well as location accuracy in the Weather app and loading times in the Gallery app.
Remember, the update is not yet available for the general public. You must be enrolled in the company’s Open Beta program and have one of the above mentioned OnePlus devices to be eligible. It began rolling out over-the-air on Monday of this week, so if you don’t have it just yet, expect a notification by Saturday at the latest. Testers can submit their feedback here.
