Android 7.0 Nougat begins rolling out to OnePlus 3T (OxygenOS 4.0.2)

The OnePlus 3T is probably one of the best smartphones out there. Its design, camera and specifications are all top-notch, offered at a comparatively lesser price. The only downside of the phone was the fact that it didn’t have Google’s latest OS. OnePlus has finally begun rolling out OxygenOS 4.0.2 to the OnePlus 3T. You might recall that back in December, OnePlus started rolling out OxygenOS 4.0 (Android 7.0 Nougat) for the OnePlus 3 and 3T. The roll-out was stopped as 4.0 was found to be buggy and unstable for the OnePlus 3T. The 4.0.2 update has likely fixed the bugs and stability issues.
