Wonder! What will be the last update for OnePlus 5?
OnePlus has confirmed that OnePlus 3 and OnePlus 3T smartphones will not get any Android version updates after Android O. OnePlus’ Head of Product, Oliver Z posted the information on the company’s forum outlining that the two smartphones will continue to receive security updates and patches.
“Android O is going to be the last Android version update we’ll release for OP3/3T. We’ll continue to release security patch updates for the foreseeable future, and offer support for individual application updates,” Oliver’s post read. Also, the company is said to conclude the Open Beta Program for OnePlus 3 and OnePlus 3T shortly after the Android O update is released for both smartphones.
The company has been regular in releasing Open Beta updates for OnePlus 3 and OnePlus 3T, and is expected to launch the August security patch soon. Also, the two smartphones will get Oxygen OS version 4.5 this year, which currently runs on OnePlus 5.
OnePlus will roll out the Android O version update for OnePlus 3 and OnePlus 3T smartphones later this year, CEO Pete Lau had announced in June. Simultaneously, recent reports suggest that Google may release the OS for the general public on August 21. Thus Android O version update for OnePlus 3 and OnePlus 3T should reach users before the year ends. Android O is currently in beta phase, open to developers and early adopters.

OnePlus 3 was launched last year and OnePlus 3T followed as a mid-cycle upgrade. While OnePlus 3 was based on Android Marshmallow 6.0 out-of the box, the OnePlus 3T was based on Android Nougat 7.0. The company promises a continued two-year of updates on their smartphones while security patches continue to reach users in idle cases. Thus, the recent information from the company is certain to leave OnePlus 3T users with sour taste considering the smartphone is not old over a year on the market.
