Last week, OnePlus announced that it will discontinue company’s current flagship device, the OnePlus 3T (in some markets) as the company is gearing up to launch the OnePlus 5 soon. You may be wondering what that means for its two predecessors from last year, the 3 and the 3T, in terms of major Android updates.
Now it is the time to relax, OnePlus Founder and CEO, Pete Lau has confirmed that the OnePlus 3 and 3T will get Android O (the next major Android release). He shared the news via his official Twitter account.
A lot of you have been asking, so I'm proud to say Android O will come to OnePlus 3 and 3T.

However, he did not mention any timeframe as to when these phones will receive the Android O update. Anyway, at least you now know that it is coming.
OnePlus has already confirmed that the OnePlus 5 will be powered by Snapdragon 835 SoC. The company has also teamed up with DxO, a photography benchmark to enhance the camera on the OnePlus 5. The smartphone is said to feature fingerprint sensor on the front, similar to the OnePlus 3 and 3T. It is expected to be launched this Summer, which is sometime in Q3 2017. We should know more details about the smartphone and the launch date soon.
