OnePlus 7T beta 2 update brings February patch & bugfixes; OnePlus 3/3T December update hitting units
China has taken a huge hit due to the coronavirus outbreak. Suffering the most from this outbreak are the Chinese smartphone manufacturers that are not able to roll out timely updates for their devices.
OnePlus, which happens to be a Chinese OEM, also got caught up with this pandemic and updates for majority of its devices, took a toll. The OnePlus 7T January 2020 patch was also delayed due to this issue.
But, there is some good news for the users of the OnePlus 7T in China, as the OEM has now started rolling out a new beta 2 HydrogenOS update that brings in the February 2020 security patchset.
Note that the Chinese variants of the OnePlus phones, run on HydrogenOS while the global units operate on OxygenOS. Talking about the update, it comes with version OP7T_H2_BETA_02 and weighs in around 538 MB in size.
It also brings along optimization for the system, phone, gallery and voice assistant. Check out the complete changelog (translated from Chinese) below along with the screenshot of the same:
– Optimize system background management mechanism
– Optimize the copy of the settings page
– Optimize the trigger parts of the interest screen display and lock screen interface.
– Update the Android security patch to 2020.02
– Add voice assistant language, car mode helps you travel safely.
– Optimize each display of the contact information window
– Repair gallery video playback black screen problem.
Both the devices are being served with the December 2019 patchset which is based on the Android 9 Pie, since the duo is not eligible to get Android 10 OS.
• Update Android security patch to 2019.12
• Improve system stability and fix known issue
Notably, their previous update brought the October 2019 security patchset, which also happened to be the last official update for both the devices on OxygenOS.
But seeing these updates being made available for the HydrogenOS variants of the OnePlus 7T and OnePlus 3/3T, we can expect that the OxygenOS variants will soon get the updates too, in the coming days.
