Good news for those of you who have a OnePlus 3 or 3T. Pete Lau, the Founder & CEO of the company has confirmed via Twitter that Android O will be coming to the 3 and 3T once it is released.
A lot of you have been asking, so I’m proud to say Android O will come to OnePlus 3 and 3T.

The question, of course, is when? OnePlus has been catching a lot of grief lately because of previous commitments to get Android Nougat out for the OnePlus 2 and the OnePlus X. Those updates simply haven’t happened and at this point, could well never happen. So while the company’s CEO has said it will be coming, there are probably more than a few OnePlus 3 & 3T owners that are hesitant to believe it.
While some of the grief is justified – don’t say something if you aren’t going to do it – some of it is a bit over the top. Many manufactures are slow or completely fail to release major updates for phones that are less than 2 years old (Samsung, I’m looking at you) so OnePlus is hardly unique.
The bottom line is that O is expected out in the September/October timeframe this year. Hopefully by the time 2018 hits, your OnePlus 3 and 3T will be running it.
