The update will only reach a small number of users today before becoming more broadly available over the next few days. If you simply can’t wait, a hero in the thread comments has uploaded a full zip of the OnePlus 3T update if you’re so inclined.

Meanwhile, we’re still waiting on the first official Nougat update for the OnePlus 2, which OnePlus has said is still coming… eventually.

OnePlus

OnePlus 3, 3T: After a brief stint in beta, OxygenOS 4.1 is coming for this pair of OnePlus flagships. It should be available now in an over-the-air update. The company’s blog has more details about the OnePlus 3 and 3T. The official changelog follows:

  • Upgraded Android 7.1.1
  • Updated Google security patch to 1st March 2017
  • Added expanded screenshots
  • Improved picture taking of moving objects with blur reduction
  • Improved video stability when recording
  • Improved WiFi connectivity
  • Improved bluetooth connectivity
  • General bug fixes

Android Wear

Fossil: Outside of the lackluster LG Watch Style and ginormous LG Watch Sport, it’s been the waiting game for existing watches. The Q Founder, Q Marshal and Q Wander are eligible for the update. Android Wear 2.0 brings the Google Assistant, native apps, and a better Google Fit app.

ZTE

Axon 7: ZTE has done a nice job with software updates, as now you have Android 7.1.1 on the ZTE 7. Along with the usability improvements that come from the latest build of Android, you get Wi-Fi calling if you use T-Mobile, all the latest emojis, and the February security patch (March will have to wait, apparently). You can get all the details directly from ZTE.

Google

Nexus 6: It’s been a weird week for the Nexus 6. A lengthy Reddit thread appeared with users complaining about being forced to downgrade from Android 7.1.1 to 7.0.

What happened was that Google initially pushed out 7.1.1 to the Nexus 6, but then pulled the update after numerous issues appeared. Now it wants everyone back on 7.0, calling it the “supported track” to try and stabilize things. It’s the first time we’ve come across Google actually rolling back a device through an update
