OnePlus 3, OnePlus 3T To Receive Android O Update; Company Promises Updates Despite OnePlus 5 Focus

Jun 01, 2017 04:12 AM EDT


The CEO of OnePlus has announced last Wednesday that the Chinese multinational tech company's OnePlus 3 and OnePlus 3T will both receive an Android O update. Currently, there is no timeline revealed about the operation system update.

In an article published by GSM Arena, OnePlus CEO Pete Lau said Android O upgrades will finally come to OnePlus 3 and OnePlus 3T after a huge public demand. Android O is the next version of the OS that would be out this late summer for Pixel and Nexus devices.

"A lot of you have been asking, so I'm proud to say Android O will come to OnePlus 3 and [OnePlus 3T]," Lau said on his Twitter account. In an article published in NDTV, this move shows how the company is treating these two smartphone devices differently after there has been a vocal displeasure of not receiving major updates from the users of OnePlus X and OnePlus 2 since the launch of the mentioned devices.

The Android O update is the second major update for OnePlus 3 and OnePlus 3T since its launch last June and November 2016, respectively. The first update that these smartphones received is an Android Nougat update.

This is considered a great news for the users of OnePlus 3 and OnePlus 3T despite the company's focus on launching OnePlus 5. The company announced the discontinuation of OnePlus 3 after OnePlus 3T became official.

The company has promised to look out for the OnePlus 3 and OnePlus 3T by supplying software-wise support. Despite the announcement, users are still clamoring for more specifics on the supports and updates.

OnePlus 3 and OnePlus 3T's successor, OnePus 5, is what currently the users are waiting to be released. Various tech sites have reported that the phone will equip a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 SoC, a front-facing fingerprint sensor, and a camera that is developed in partnership with DxO. The upcoming smartphone is also believed to sport a 23-megapixel rear sensor and a 16-megapixel front camera.
