OnePlus 3/3T won't receive any major software update following Android O

We're not surprised that this will be the case, for a company with a track record like OnePlus's, it does better to come out and say it.

OnePlus confirms that Android O will be the last major update to the OnePlus 3 and 3T.

Also ending after the OnePlus 3/3T's Android O update is the Open Beta Program for the two phones. These two were succeeded by the OnePlus 5, and after its release, there were talks about OnePlus giving software update to the OnePlus 3 and OnePlus 3T.

The first question starts off by asking why the OnePlus 5 has received more updates since it was released than the OP3/3T has had during that same time frame. "We'll continue to release security patch updates for the foreseeable future, and offer support for individual application updates", the company's head of product, Oliver Z. said. Even with Android O, the OnePlus 3T will receive just a little over a year of support, which is not much.

A day earlier, he vowed to meet North Korea's threats to strike the United States with " fire and fury ". Rubio also had a warning for North Korea.

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. There's now no word as to when Android O will be released for the 3/3T, but with Google expected to release public builds before the month is over, we'd hope that OnePlus can push it out before 2017 is over.

While the OnePlus 3 is fairly old at this point (in terms of smartphone shelf-life at least), the OnePlus 3T is just nine months old and many buyers will be a little miffed at this news.

According to Oliver, the August security patches for the OnePlus 3 and 3T are going to be released "soon" while the OxygenOS 4.5 build will be out "in the next 1-2 months".
