It started with the OnePlus 3 at the end of 2016, and since then, the Open Beta program of OxygenOS it has become the perfect platform for all those users who own a phone company, who want to test the latest software news before the rest. Currently, both OnePlus 3 and 3T, like 5 and 5T , enjoy their beta program, and continue to receive monthly test updates, which bring new features to the software of phones of Chinese origin.
Of course, being part of a beta program like this, also carries its risks. Today, according to announcements since Android Police , OnePlus has been forced to withdraw the latest Open Beta version destined to its last four smartphones, due to operating problems related to possible excessive battery consumption.
The withdrawn beta version corresponded to the Open Beta 5 in the case of OnePlus 5T, Open Beta 7 in OnePlus 5, Open Beta 24 in OnePlus 3T, and Open Beta 33 in OnePlus 3. The previous models of the company are not part of the program – since they do not even receive updates yet – and therefore they are out of danger.
OnePlus, for the time being, has not communicated the concrete causes that led it to withdraw the update, although a good number of users in the OnePlus forums reportedly a drastic drop in battery life after installing the latest beta edition. Others, in addition, assured that the temperature of the terminal stayed excessively high even when it was in rest.
All those who have already updated to the latest version, will have to wait until OnePlus releases the next version of the Open Beta, correcting the bugs , something that should not take too long to happen. The rest, meanwhile, will not receive the update through OTA, since this has been withdrawn, and in case of wanting to proceed with the manual installation of the Open Beta, they will only be able to Download the previous version from the OnePlus website.
