OnePlus 3 and 3T LineageOS 15 ROM now available [Download]

OnePlus 3 and 3t LineageOS 15.0

Earlier today, we told you that OnePlus is already testing the Oreo update for the OnePlus 3 in closed-beta group, which itself is incredible as the Android 8.0 OS is not very old at the moment. But guess what, in case you want to download the OnePlus 3 Oreo update, you can’t because no OTA or firmware is available at the moment — and likely won’t be until the official build is available under the public-beta release.

But here’s a solid, and reliable, way to install and run the Oreo update on your OnePlus 3 right now. We’re talking about LineageOS 15 ROM, that runs on Android 8.0 and is now available for both the OnePlus 3 and OnePlus 3T, speaking of which, the OnePlus 3T and OnePlus 5 are expected to have their own 8.0 closed-beta build available pretty real soon.

With the OnePlus 3/3T LineageOS 15 ROM, you can have some fun with new and cool Oreo features get to play with new features right away, and these include stuff like, new Settings app, new notifications center, notification snooze, picture-in-picture and Autofill.
