OnePlus 3, 3T won't get major OS updates after Android O

OnePlus 3, 3T won't get major OS updates after Android O”

So today the Chinese company's Head of Product, Oliver Z., has made a decision to answer a few questions on the matter.

A community manager posted an update to the fan forums about software support for the OnePlus 3 and OnePlus 3T, both released during the course of 2016.

Smartphone manufacturers typically keep open an industry-standard two-year action window for major software upgrades.

Android O is going to be the last Android version update we'll release for OP3/3T. Since many customers who purchased the OnePlus 3, 3T and 5 are wondering if they will be treated the same way OnePlus 2 and X owners were treated, the Chinese company has made a decision to come forward with an official statement and reveal its plans regarding the software roadmap.

This is why it doesn't really come as a surprise to learn that OnePlus will be done with the OnePlus 3 and 3T after the Android O update.

"We'll continue to release security patch updates for the foreseeable future, and offer support for individual application updates", said Oliver Z. OnePlus does say that those devices will continue to get security updates for the "foreseeable future", though. It's worth noting that OnePlus has been pushing continuous updates through the beta program to test the new features before pushing a public release.

After the OnePlus 2's very lukewarm response, there was much rejoicing when the OnePlus 3, and later the OnePlus 3T, turned out to be a return to form for OnePlus. Another question asks about security updates and they're told that due to a delay in OxygenOS 4.5 for the OP3/3T these security patches for August will be pushed "soon" by themselves and without the big 4.5 update.
