OnePlus 3/3T won't get any major OS update after Android O

OnePlus 3/3T won't get any major OS update after Android O

OnePlus confirms that Android O will be the last major update to the OnePlus 3 and 3T.

While we are sure that the OnePlus 5 will get the Android O update without any delay, a recent post by the company has clarified regarding the support that will be offered to the yesteryear flagships - OnePlus 3 and OnePlus 3T.

The company's head of product Oliver Z says security patch updates are coming "for the foreseeable future" but there'll be no Android P release for the 2016 handsets.

In addition, Oliver also said that OnePlus will also end the Open Beta Program for the 3/3T after Android O update is released.

While the advent of Android O update is indeed a good news for the anxious OnePlus 3/3T owners, the confirmed dearth of updates, following that will surely discourage many. Even with Android O, the OnePlus 3T will receive just a little over a year of support, which is not much. On the other hand, the OnePlus 3T has only been out for nine months, with the OnePlus 3/3T presumably packing more than sufficient hardware to support at least one more major software update beyond Android O. 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.

OnePlus does specifically mention that security updates will continue for the "foreseeable future" (whatever that means), but still, buyers of this phone probably would have liked to have a solid two years of Android version updates.

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.
