No Android 8.1 for OnePlus 3 and 3T, Android P update will be delivered instead
That includes not just this year’s OnePlus 6 and 2017’s 5T and 5, but the OnePlus 3 and 3T as well, the former of which is already more than 24 months old. The Snapdragon 820 and 821-powered devices have both seen daylight running Android 6.0 Marshmallow out the box, which made their Nougat and Oreo promotions feel… refreshingly normal.
But what comes next is outright astonishing, as the Android 8.1 update will be skipped to shift the focus entirely on the Android P “project.” That’s right, the OnePlus 3T and 3 are slated to move straight from OS version 8.0 to 9.0.
You obviously shouldn’t start counting the days just yet, as OnePlus will look to update the OP6 first, then the 5 and 5T, meaning the earliest you can reasonably expect the 3 and 3T to do the official Android P dance is probably during the early stages of next year.
Until then, a couple of additional security patches and other minor OxygenOS revisions are likely on the cards, which is already more than what other manufacturers are delivering for two year-old devices. Three major OS updates is something only Google can promise for Pixel phones, making OnePlus a third-party software support heavyweight title contender.
