OnePlus 3/3T wont get major OS updates after Android O

So there's been a surge in questions about software support for the OnePlus 3/3T on their forums and they made a decision to pool a few of them together for some answers. But now it seems that all the doubt has been clear, as the company's senior executive has confirmed that both the devices will get Android O. However, he also mentions that after this update users will not get any further OS update for OnePlus 3 and 3T.

Smartphone manufacturers typically keep open an industry-standard two-year action window for major software upgrades.

The OnePlus 2, from the class of 2015, were initially supposed to receive Android Nougat, but were recently designated to be forever stuck on Android Marshmallow instead.

Also on the outs after Android O is the open beta program for the OnePlus 3 and OnePlus 3T.

When Knights of the Frozen Throne launches, it will add 135 new cards, including a whole new type of hero, Death Knights . The final mission set, coming a week later on August 24, is Showdown with the Lich King: The Frozen Throne.

The OnePlus 3 was released in the summer of of 2016, while the OnePlus 3T arrived just before the turn of the year.

Android O is going to be the last Android version update we'll release for OP3/3T. Otherwise, you'll have to wait a while for each official update to come in as the OnePlus 5 has gotten development priority.

As for the foreseeable future, OxygenOS on the OnePlus 3/3T will be updated to version 4.5 in the next month or two, though a security patch will arrive "soon".

Oliver says the company dedicates a lot of time during the 1-2 months after a new device is released to iron out/add some of the most requested bugs/features. On the other hand, the OnePlus 3T has only been out for nine months, with the OnePlus 3/3T presumably packing more than sufficient hardware to support at least one more major software update beyond Android O.
