About seven months ago, OnePlus announced that it will release Android Pie update to its old OnePlus 3 and OnePlus 3T smartphones. But, the rollout still hasn’t happened yet. Now, the company’s Community Manager David Y has reiterated that OnePlus will indeed push the latest Android Pie update to its 2016-released handsets. But, he also mentioned that first an Android Oreo-based security patch will be released and then the Pie update.
There is however no word on the official rollout timeline at the moment. Furthermore, users who have repeatedly been asking him about the Android Pie update, the community manager replied to them saying, “Can’t you guys just go and do something more meaningful than chasing the update… (facepalm).” In addition, roughly seven months ago, OnePlus asserted that it would skip the Android 8.1 Oreo update and instead, offer the latest Android operating system.
The company then released the Android Pie updates to OnePlus 5, OnePlus 5T, and OnePlus 6 as well. Later, it was confirmed that the Chinese company soon do the same for the OnePlus 3 and 3T. This has led to users repeatedly asking the same question on the OnePlus forum. Furthermore, it’s good that the company is still planning to roll out the latest Android Pie update to its 2016-released handset as it will be the three major Android OS release.
