OnePlus has released an official update cycle map for its devices. The software maintenance plan provides a clearer picture of when supported phones are regularly updated. From now on, devices are fully supported for two years – that means Android version upgrades, new feature implementations, and security updates. After the two years, the phones will receive one extra year of security updates, which will arrive every two months.
The newly released schedule will apply to OnePlus 3 and OnePlus 3T, OnePlus 5 / 5T and the recently released versions. OnePlus 6. The company also informed the community through its forum that they will release a new open beta version of the OnePlus 3 / 3T later this week. In early July, it will also provide a stable version of the operating system for the above mentioned handsets.
Improving the clarity of the update, OnePlus will avoid potential miscommunication, as was the case with the OnePlus 2 and the OnePlus X. The OnePlus 2 was promised an update to Android 7.0 Nougat, but in the end, owners of the Handset hang.
