OnePlus 3 finally seems ready to receive the update to Android 7.0 Nougat, in a much shorter time compared to its brother OnePlus X, which should be updated to Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow soon (and whose update will be the last, since Snapdragon 801 processor is not compatible with Nougat). This was confirmed by the same Chinese company in a Reddit AMA session, where answered questions from users. We still have no exact date, but it seems that within a maximum period of two months users should receive a notification to download and install the new version of the Google operating system.

OnePlus 3 updates to Android 7.0 Nougat 1

OnePlus 3 design features the presence of an anodized aluminum body with silver and graphite colors in soft golden hue surrounding a large screen with 1920 x 1080 pixels, Full HD resolution and 5.5-inch size protected by Gorilla Glass 4 with side buttons on the back and a main camera with 16 megapixel sensor manufactured by Sony and that makes use of a bright f/2.0. On the inside of the camera, we find different features and components such as HDR, system of optical and electronic stabilization, phase detection compatible with RAW format approach and video recording also in 4K at 30 fps and slow motion to 720p quality and up to 120 fps. The camera on the front is 8 megapixel camera with f/2.0 aperture, electronic stabilization system, 1080p Full HD video at 30 fps and smile recognition.

OnePlus 3 had a starting price of 399 euros, which is not bad for a device with 6 GB of RAM which is accompanied by the powerful Snapdragon 820 chipset and Adreno 530 graphics card; the weak point is certainly the internal memory of 16 GB non expandable via microSD. Luckily there are cloud storage services, but the physical memory is also important. Then there is the Android 6.0.1 operating system with interface OxygenOS, GPS, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, wireless 4G and NFC chip.

OnePlus X is a more compact model with a Snapdragon 801 processor of 32-bit with Adreno 330 GPU, 5-inch screen AMOLED with a resolution of 1080 x 1920 pixels protected by Gorilla Glass 3, OxygenOS interface mounted with Android 5.1.1 operating system, 13-megapixel rear camera with ISOCELL sensor with f/2.2 aperture, while the front camera is 5 megapixels for selfies. It has integrated FM radio and memory of 16 GB which can be expanded up to 128 GB, fortunately, via microSD.
