After facing early criticism from reviewers and users for certain issues related to the display and RAM management, OnePlus is now coming up with an over the air (OTA) update for fixing the issues.

According to Android Authority, the update (version 3.1.4 of Oxygen OS) will now be rolled out to review units across to take feedback and release it officially later on.


The new update is expected to fix the issue related to the display and poor RAM management. To be more specific, the OTA update will now introduce a sRGB mode, accessible from developer options on the settings menu.

With the sRGB mode, users will now be able to tone down the colours shown by the OnePlus 3, which had been criticised by numerous tech firms for being inaccurate.

However, the issue with the colour is at a highly technical level, and the device’s colour combination and other offerings are fine from a layman’s perspective. Yes, there is a bluish tone, low brightness affecting the smartphone but the effect is minimal.

Besides, the OTA will further improve the RAM management issue pointed out earlier by several tests, showing that the device does not utilise the RAM to its full extent.

With the new OTA, the company plans to improve facets such as game-loading time, improved RAM management for better multi-tasking. Initially OnePlus CEO Carl Pei said the company will make its kernel available to third party OS developers, which will help them make full utilisation of the 6GB RAM.

The company also said that the new OTA update will bring a number of other small and ‘unspecified’ optimisations.
