OnePlus Commits to Three Years of Updates

OnePlus guarantees software updates for two years, and security for three years

The new schedule accounts for everything back to the OnePlus 3 and 3T, which are close to the two year anniversary of their release.

One of the biggest complaints and hesitations around purchasing a OnePlus device was if it would be updated and left behind in the Android software lifecycle. Case in point is the OnePlus 2T, which debuted in November 2016, and was denied the Android Oreo update.

OnePlus today formally committed to service its handsets with two years of feature updates and three years of security updates. At present OnePlus rolls out Android updates for phones that were launched for a maximum of two years ago.

Regular software updates include the likes of Android version upgrades and new OnePlus-specific features, and along with this, all phones are also getting 3 years of Android Security patch updates that will be pushed out every two months.




The policy applies to new devices like the OnePlus 6, as well as existing devices still within that timeframe, like the OnePlus 5T, OnePlus 5 and OnePlus 3/3T handsets. "We look forward to bring you more exciting news about Android version updates in the coming months, stay tuned", concluded OnePlus. OnePlus 5/5T will get major updates till November 2019 and security patches till November 2020. This sparked an excitement for the device that it would severely cut down the time taken to get the latest version of Android to the device.

Not a lot of smartphone OEMs bother with regular and timely software updates for their devices.

The company also clarified the software schedule for all OnePlus 3 and 3T devices by adding that it will launch the last Open Beta build for both the devices "later this week".
