Three big updates for the flagship is a really rare phenomenon in the world of Android. Meanwhile, OnePlus has just announced that it intends to update the OnePlus 3 and OnePlus 3T to Android P!
OnePlus 3 and OnePlus 3T are two successful smartphones from 2016. Their career began on Android Marshmallow and everyone expected it to end on Android Oreo. It's quite logical – after all, two-year support is a common phenomenon in the Android world. OnePlus apparently came to the conclusion that it was time to stop it.
Android P for OnePlus 3 and OnePlus 3T
If your OnePlus 3 / OnePlus 3T had to get Android 8.1 Oreo, it will not get it. This does not mean, however, that the producer abandoned them, because OnePlus is preparing something even better!OnePlus 3 and OnePlus 3T are expected to receive an update to Android P. This means that these smartphones will receive a third, large system update, which is a very rare phenomenon among smartphones with a green robot on board. As far as I am not mistaken, this type of support is offered only by Google – although Xiaomi can longer provide new MIUI, however, it is often not associated with a change in the Android base. Of course, you will have to wait for the update – the discussed models are last in line, with all newer flagships. It's worth remembering that OnePlus works with Google on Android P tests, so you may not have to wait for a new system update until the next summer. To be honest, I think that the flagship of Android should be guaranteed three years of support – I do not need more. OnePlus impresses me more and more – who knows, maybe my next smartphone will be the model of this brand? 😉
There will be security updates
At this point it is worth recalling that OnePlus 3 and OnePlus 3T are to receive security patches until November 2019 . If you have bought OnePlus 3 or OnePlus 3T with the hope of longer support, you certainly do not feel disappointed at the moment. Let's just hope that OnePlus will keep its word. Source: OnePlus
