In a OnePlus forum post, a certain user Oliver Z., head of Product, confirmed in a statement that Android O will be the last major OS update for the highly popular duo OnePlus 3 and 3T.
“for OP3/3T. We’ll continue to release security patch updates for the foreseeable future, and offer support for individual application updates. After the OP3/3T have been updated to Android O, we’ll start moving the Open Beta Program from OP3/3T to OP5.”
Consider yourself lucky, OnePlus 3 and 3T owners. It can be recalled that many OnePlus 2 and OnePlus X users were left in the dark by OnePlus for not releasing an Android Nougat update for the respective devices. Both devices and Android Nougat were announced just one year apart. At least this time around, the company is being transparent with their plans.
