OnePlus 3 to get updated as long as OnePlus 3T

OnePlus 3 Android flagship killer to get updates as long as OnePlus 3T
OnePlus 3
Although OnePlus 3T arrived six months after the original OnePlus 3, both handsets will get the same end of the update life cycle. This way, OnePlus 3 owners will not be left behind those using the more recent 3T handset.

The updated OnePlus 3T arrived quick on the market, only six months after its popular predecessor. However, its appearance also made OnePlus 3 owners worried about the update life cycle of their handsets. Fortunately, it has been confirmed that both flagship killers would get updated side by side, thus increasing the original expectations for the OnePlus 3.

According to a confirmation received by Android Authority, "The OnePlus 3 will continue to receive updates alongside the OnePlus 3T until the newer device reaches the end of its update life cycle." However, OnePlus does not reveal any time frame, so when will these devices reach the end of their life cycle remains a mystery for now.

OnePlus was not one of those companies to come out with the software updates promptly, sometimes lagging seriously behind the stock Android releases from Google. For now, we know that both the OnePlus 3 and OnePlus 3T should get Android Nougat, as the upcoming firmware is already in Beta stage. Remains to see what will happen in the future and when will the OnePlus 3/3T get their last official update.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
