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

Share

Now in a recent Q&A session fielded by the company on the official forums, it has been confirmed that the Android O would be the last major update for last year's flagships.

So today the Chinese company's Head of Product, Oliver Z., has chose to answer a few questions on the matter. We'll continue to release security patch updates for the foreseeable future, and offer support for individual application updates. There's now no word as to when Android O will be released for the 3/3T, but with Google expected to release public builds before the month is over, we'd hope that OnePlus can push it out before 2017 is over. And with the release of the OnePlus 5 it's understandable that owners of last year's flagships, the OnePlus 3 and 3T, have gotten a bit antsy not knowing exactly what to expect from this point forward.

The OnePlus 3 and 3T are two praise-worthy smartphones by OnePlus. This is good news for OnePlus 5 users who wish to experiment with the latest Android features before they are released to the public. A higher frequency of updates for a brand new phone isn't unexpected though, and we generally see a few from major OEMs which are trying to fix bugs and improve stability for a newly released device. 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.

During the Q&A, OnePlus also announced that it plans to push the August security patches to the OnePlus 3 and OnePlus 3T very soon.

So, how much better do you feel now?
