A preview build of the next version of Android was made available on OnePlus 6. This is the first time when users of devices other than the Pixel phones by Google can test the newest version of Android.
The first developer preview for a non-Pixel device
The update that includes the upcoming Android P is called Developer Preview 3 on OnePlus, but it seems like this could be the same version as the fourth developer preview that Google released at the beginning of July. Since the first developer preview for Android P was available only on Pixel phones, the difference in numbers is understandable.
What comes with the update
On the changelog provided by OnePlus we can see the list of improvements and fixes that come with this update. The Developer Preview 3 will include the most recent security patch and it will improve system stability, the quality of the camera, and the compatibility with third-party apps. On the other hand, we might experience certain issues while testing Android P, which is expected with every preview build. Amongst the potential problems listed by OnePlus there are some issues with power consumption, Bluetooth connectivity and the functioning of some apps.
How to get the Developer Preview 3 update
In case you own a OnePlus 6 and want to test Android P to see how it works, you should visit the OnePlus website where you can find the instructions on how to download and install the Developer Preview 3. Once you install the update, be aware of the fact that some additional issues might occur, which were not mentioned by OnePlus.
According to some reports, the fourth developer preview of Android P could be a suitable candidate for an official release, which means that the rollout of the newest version of Android should follow soon.
