OnePlus' track record with software support for its devices has been decent for some products, and very bad for others (remember the OnePlus 2 and OnePlus X?).

OnePlus has confirmed that Android O will be the last major Android OS update for the OnePlus 3 and 3T. As OnePlus 3 and OnPlus 3T owners were in the dilemma whether their handset would get any software update in the future. For the OnePlus 3T, which launched in November of last year, that means it is only getting about a year of updates.

The first question starts off by asking why the OnePlus 5 has received more updates since it was released than the OP3/3T has had during that same time frame.

While the advent of Android O update is indeed a good news for the anxious OnePlus 3/3T owners, the confirmed dearth of updates, following that will surely discourage many. Even with Android O, the OnePlus 3T will receive just a little over a year of support, which is not much.

"We'll continue to release security patch updates for the foreseeable future, and offer support for individual application updates", said Oliver Z. It's worth noting that OnePlus has been pushing continuous updates through the beta program to test the new features before pushing a public release. At this point, the OnePlus 3 is 14 months old while the OnePlus 3T is just 9 months old from their respective dates of release.

When it comes to Android O, Google is expected to release the update by the end of this month. The OxygenOS 4.5 with August security patch for both the devices is on it's way.
