Share

In an interview published on the OnePlus forums, the company's head of product has revealed all. 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 chose to come forward with an official statement and reveal its plans regarding the software roadmap. It seems that the company is following Google's model of two-major-software-updates-per-device. It was already known that this is the last major OS update for nearly all the Nexus branded devices.

Confirmed via the OnePlus forums, the last Android version update the OnePlus 3 and OnePlus 3T will receive is Android O. OnePlus would still be offering the users with regular security patches. OnePlus has now stated that this will also be the last Android OS update for the OnePlus 3 and OnePlus 3T smartphones.

OnePlus 3/3T owners out there, what are your thoughts about your phone stopping at Android O for major updates?

However, even if it makes sense, this still probably comes as sour news for OnePlus 3/3T owners.
