Moreover, though the smartphone is all set to launch on November 15, the actual release might take some time. As a result, we might not see OnePlus 3T on the shelves until December 2016.

The update brings in a bunch of fixes with possible workarounds for PlayStore download issue.
However, the official opening of the store for the public will happen tomorrow i.e. 7th January at 2 PM.
Note that the list includes both Nougat specific and OnePlus specific features. Also, all of these features are common to OnePlus 3T as well.
