The Chinese giant OnePlus has released the 3rd version of the company’s Android Q Developer Preview for its flagship devices i.e. OnePlus 6, 6T, 7 and Oneplus 7 Pro users simultaneously – bringing update beats together for the first time.
The recent updates from Google arrive as the Beta method for Q on the pixels is about to end but as far as OnePlus is concerned, the company has suggested that the participants will be needing to temper their expectations on when OnePlus’ OS upgrade will be finalized.
In regard to the update method itself, if you are already in a developer preview, your information must be backed up as the on-load Developer Preview 3 requires a wipe — the OnePlus 6 series impacts Developer Preview 2 defendants in particular. A disk cleaner will also be required for everyone rolling from a stable image or open beta image.
As with prior previews, you can download the ZIP file to your computer and update the local system to switch between preview and stable pictures. More about the updates can be found in the suitable forum posts and downloaded for OnePlus 6 and OnePlus 7 series.
In relation to overall stability and app compatibility problems, OnePlus 7 and 7 Pro owners on DP3 may also discover fingerprint authentication unusable on-demand from the ambient screen. Before using the sensor, they need to wake up their device manually by pressing the power button.
There is nothing to say about what version of the mainline Android Q beta OnePlus will adopt for the recent preliminary view but it says it is still in its “early phase” for most software companies. The question remains, however, of how far behind will the company trail Google in pushing Q.
