Oneplus keeps its flagships up to date with the latest version of Android but the main issue is the older device will not receive any of the updates.
The company’s latest flagship has been getting quite a few updates but OnePlus 3 and 3T is confirmed to get Android O as its last update.This statement has been revealed by Oliver Z , Head of the product at OnePlus. OnePlus 3 and 3T users would feel bad about this statement as their smartphone is a flagship and when a new product reaches the market in future, they would feel hesitant to compete with them.
“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. After the OP3/3T have been updated to Android O, we’ll start moving the Open Beta Program from OP3/3T to OP5.” said Oliver Z., Head of Product, OnePlus.
The time which OnePlus 3 and 3T were launched with Android M and later updated with Android N very faster than its rivals.But now the decision by the company really disappoints the OnePlus 3 and especially 3T owners as it was launched last November and now OnePlus have plans about stopping the updates.In my opinion, it is unacceptable OnePlus should support customers for a long time as OnePlus 3 and 3T is a one-year-old smartphone.
