The update also includes support for Airtel VoLTE in India. The Open Beta version 30 which comes with the features isn't now available through the company's official website.

Previously available only on the OnePlus 5T - and it was eventually implemented on the OnePlus 5 too - the company's Face Unlock feature is coming to the OnePlus 3 and 3T as well.

For the OnePlus 5 and OnePlus 5T, OnePlus has released OxygenOS Open Beta 4 and Open Beta 2, respectively. The feature is software-centric unlike iPhone X's Face ID, which works on 3D depth sensing tech via device's front-facing camera sensors. It also includes bug fixes and optimisations. This update will bring some of the features now available to the flagship devices of 2017.

The Face Unlock feature was firstly introduced in company's latest flagship OnePlus 5T. Other apps such as Clipboard, File Manager, and Dialer have also been improved with some new features. The OnePlus 5T will now have the ability to auto-name folders and a new dynamic icon feature will be available for the desktop clock icon.

While the OnePlus 3T gets Open Beta 21, OnePlus 3 gets Open Beta 30.

Despite some of the new features and advancements, the new OxygenOS Open Beta versions are still meant for testing purposes as they include some known issues as well as various hidden bugs. The company also explicitly warns users that the new builds are not as stable as the official OTAs generally are. If you are really eager for it, you can flash an earlier Open Beta build (example Open Beta 29) and then search for the OTA update on the phone. OnePlus has provided its flashing guides to help you easily install the new version.

OnePlus, the famed flagship killer is all set to expedite the reach of Android's latest software version to its older devices.
