If you’re familiar with the tech field of today, then you know that Chinese smartphone producer OnePlus became a major power player in the game. Its latest launch was the OnePlus 5 smartphone, which was highly anticipated and quickly became one of the most expected and coveted launches of the year. But the previous and older devices in the range are also quite noteworthy. We’re talking about the OnePlus 3 and the OnePlus 3T, of course.
There is an open beta program going around for the OnePlus 3 and OnePlus 3T smartphones, and some interesting additions and changes just took place in it. For one, there are updated security patches, as well as UX related changes. There is also some minor optimization going on. This all has to do with OxygenOS, of course. But some major undocumented changes also took place, such as the addition of DCI-P3 support for the OnePlus 3 and the OnePlus 3T.
The new beta kernel source for the Open Beta of OnePlus 3 and OnePlus 3T contains an unmistakable addition of DCI-P3 support. Although we don’t want to bore you with pointless lines of code, here are the lines in cause in case you want to have a look:
For those users out there that are unfamiliar with DCI-P3 and what it means for the OnePlus 3 and OnePlus 3T, let’s just say for starters that it’s almost the same color gamut used by 4K TVs. The OnePlus 5 originally had it as an user-facing feature, but the OnePlus 3 and OnePlus 3T seem to have as not user-facing. But this is actually only going to work on the OnePlus 3T, because the OnePlus 3’s panel is way too different. So if you have root access and a OnePlus 3T phone, give it a try.
