Now, the official OnePlus forum has confirmed that the much awaited update is rolling out to the OnePlus 3 and 3T users across the globe.

That includes some customizations to the App Launcher, like notification dots (from Oreo) and a new design. Both the devices already received Android Oreo through OnePlus's Open Beta program and had received a couple of updates since then. After the beta testing is over, the full OTA (over-the-air) update for the Android 8.0 OS will be available in early 2018.While, the Oreo beta for the OnePlus 5T will come in December, says OnePlus spokesperson at the 5T launch. Just make sure that you are running on OxygenOS 4.5.1 to receive the Oreo update. "The OTA will reach a small percentage of users today, and we'll begin a broader rollout in a few days", Jimmy Z, OxygenOS product manager, OnePlus, said in a statement.

The update will first be rolled out incrementally and then expand to more users. This way, OnePlus has progressed to become the second manufacturer to roll out the Oreo update to its devices.
