OnePlus, through a post on the OnePlus forum, has confirmed that Android O will be last major OS update for the OnePlus 3 and 3T. Oliver Z, Head of Product at OnePlus, also added that both phones will receive security and feature updates for the foreseeable future.
OnePlus will instead focus on the recently launched OnePlus 5, bringing experimental features and new releases from the company and its community for the device through OnePlus’ open beta program.
While OnePlus has constantly received praise for its affordable flagships, it has also been criticized for not bringing major software updates to the older phones in its lineup. The OnePlus 3 is just 14 months old and the 3T is nine months old.
