OnePlus 3 and 3T will receive Android O as Final Major Update

The latter set of people had given up hopes for the next Android O update, and that isn't completely their fault, considering what OnePlus did with their OnePlus 2 and OnePlus X smartphones.

In a forum post, OnePlus has revealed that Android O will be the last major OS update for the OnePlus 3 and the OnePlus 3T.

Android users with the OnePlus 3 or OnePlus 3T will be getting one last major update for their devices. This information was revealed while he was answering questions on the forum.

He has also stated that the Android 8.0 O will be the last major update made for the mentioned devices, though security patches will still be available and coming in the "foreseeable future". However, the handsets will not receive Android P update expected to release in 2018.

In the course of the QnA, Oliver was also asked about some OP5 software features making their way to the OP3/3T via an update. The goal of the program is to fetch feedback in the form of bug reports and feature requests such as new improvements directly from the user community. It's worth noting that OnePlus has been pushing continuous updates through the beta program to test the new features before pushing a public release. However, if you are someone who likes to use phones as-is, I feel your pain. However, the Chinese tech firm won't be leaving the handset buyers in the dark as it will be rolling out security patches for the "foreseeable future".

The OnePlus 3 was released in the summer of of 2016, while the OnePlus 3T arrived just before the turn of the year.

Even the former mobile pioneer Nokia ( via HMD Global Oy) has promised to offer two years of Android OS support to its mid-range and entry-level phones-Nokia 6, 5 and 3. It remains to be seen as to how long the company will sell the OnePlus 3T.
