If you are a OnePlus 3/3T or 5/5T owner you might want to be seated for this one. Pete Lau, company’s CEO, says the developers need more time to work on the Android 9.0 Pie update for those phones.
It’s understandable to some extent given that the OnePlus 3 and 3T are more than two-year-old phones that weren’t supposed to get the 9.0 Pie update in the first place and new phones are a top priority at the moment. But what’s with the hold up on the OnePlus 5 and 5T?
Unfortunately, Pete Lau didn’t disclose anything more and moved on to tease the OnePlus 6T. He says that the latter will ship with Google’s new OS out of the box and we also expect it to bring OnePlus’ new OxygenOS UI re-design. We hope OnePlus doesn’t go too far with that last one as many users come to OnePlus mainly for its clean, stock Android.
Still, we hope that the OnePlus 3 and 5-series will get the Pie update before the end of this year. The firm still has two more months to go.
