This comes almost two weeks after the company rolled out an emergency update to fix the reboot issue that was plaguing its flagship when some users were trying to contact emergency services using 911. For the uninitiated, 911 is used to contact emergency services in the United States.

The company has released about seven software updates after the launch of the smartphone to ensure that the bugs reported by users are fixed. This is not the only device that the company is issuing active updates to. It is also managing the Open Beta channel for both the OnePlus 3 and 3T. OnePlus is one of the few companies that upgraded its flagship smartphones to Android Nougat 7.1.1. The company has not released any detailed about the jelly effect ‘bug’ that the users are complaining about.
