After the OnePlus 2’s extremely tepid reaction, there was much cheering when the OnePlus 3, and later the OnePlus 3T, ended up being an arrival to shape for OnePlus. With the organization’s consideration now on the OnePlus 5, in any case, it won’t not come as a colossal stun that Oliver Z, OnePlus’ head of item, affirmed that the OnePlus 3/3T won’t be given real programming refreshes following Android O.
In a meeting with OnePlus’ people group director, Oliver affirmed the possible move, however the telephones will in any case get security fix refreshes “for years to come”:
” Android O is going to be the last Android version update we’ll release for OP3/3T. We’ll continue to release security patch updates for the foreseeable future, and offer support for individual application updates. “
On one hand, I comprehend that, the OnePlus 3/3T will have become two noteworthy programming refreshes when Android O handles, a timetable that even Google clings to with Nexus and Pixel telephones. Additionally, no less than OnePlus will in any case issue security patches for the two telephones. Then again, the OnePlus 3T has just been out for nine months, with the OnePlus 3/3T probably pressing more than adequate equipment to help no less than one more significant programming refresh past Android O.
Tinkerers require not stress, since there will undoubtedly be custom ROMs for the OnePlus 3/3T because of their fame in the ROM people group. Notwithstanding, on the off chance that you are somebody who likes to utilize telephones as-seems to be, I feel your agony.
Additionally finishing after the OnePlus 3/3T’s Android O refresh is the Open Beta Program for the two telephones. Oliver affirmed that OnePlus will utilize the program solely for the OnePlus 5.
With respect to the not so distant, OxygenOS on the OnePlus 3/3T will be refreshed to variant 4.5 in the following month or two, however a security fix will arrive “soon.” Finally, Oliver affirmed there are a few components, for example, the OnePlus 5’s Reading Mode, that won’t stream down to the OnePlus 3/3T because of equipment constraints.
By and large, the news will come as a killjoy for OnePlus 3/3T proprietors, however what they should fear is an encore of the product refresh circumstance with respect to the OnePlus 2 and OnePlus X. Yuck.
