The OnePlus 3 and 3T Will be Getting Android P

The OnePlus 3 and 3T Will be Getting Android P

OnePlus 3 and OnePlus 3T are all set to get the Android P software update once the final version launches later this year.

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".

The company announced its commitment to three years of updates for the OnePlus 3/3T, 5/5T, 6, as well as future devices. The latest iteration of the OnePlus family brings us an all-new design on the outside, and more of what we already love on the ...

"Including our camera improvements and the latest Android security patch, the OxygenOS 5.0.4 update for OnePlus 3 and 3T was released worldwide last week".

Both the OnePlus 3 and 3T now run on Android 8.0 Oreo.

For those who have yet to upgrade from a OnePlus 3 or OnePlus 3T, this is major news.

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.

In an announcement the company said: "After internal discussions and evaluation, we have made a decision to focus our development resources on the Android P project, instead of upgrading the OnePlus 3 and 3T device to Android 8.1". However, Google broke all precedent when it announced the Android P beta builds would be released to not only the usual Pixel devices but also to a multitude of other partner OEMs, one of which being OnePlus. So, if we assume that the final Android P release to AOSP and ecosystem arrives in Q3 2018, the stable update to OnePlus' 2016 flagships probably won't be released until the first few months of 2019.

Android P is now in its beta testing stage.
