The release of Open Beta 12 for OnePlus 3 and 3T made OnePlus the first non-Google manufacturer to release the Android 7.1.1 Nougat to its devices. It was then followed by the ZTE Axon 7, and much more. Later, the firmware came out of Beta Program with the advent of official Oxygen OS 4.1.0. The OTA brought the official Android v7.1.1 to the flagships. Today, OnePlus software development team rolled out the official Hydrogen OS Beta 4 for the OnePlus 3T and the H2OS Public Beta 10 for the OnePlus 3. This new firmware is still based on the 7.1.1 Nougat but comes with many new changes to UX, performance, and stability. H2OS, as we know, is an alternative firmware for the Chinese variants of the OnePlus phones. However, the H2OS ROMS can be installed seamlessly on the international variants as well.
This means the Open Beta 13 and the Open Beta 4 for the OnePlus 3 and 3T respectively are on their way. We can expect the next Open Betas within this week. Moreover, there is a little bit of difference in the stock Oxygen OS and Hydrogen OS firmware. Check out the full changelog of H2OS Public Beta from below. We have also seen an Android 7.1.1 Nougat based H2OS custom ROM for the OnePlus 2 as well. this is
