OnePlus is currently one of the few Android device makers excluding Google which can be trusted with regular and faster software updates. It not only delivers monthly security updates on time but also makes sure to upgrade its devices to the newest Android version as soon as possible. While it has already updated the OnePlus 6 to Android Pie, its other eligible devices are still waiting for an upgrade which is now confirmed to get at least a little longer.
OnePlus CEO Pete Lau has shared on the Chinese microblogging website Weibo that OnePlus 5 and OnePlus 3 series smartphones will surely be receiving Android Pie but it will take some time. He confirmed this while responding to a user's query on the platform. The exact reasons for the apparent delay were not shared by he said that the work on the update is currently going on.
Other than this, he went on to confirm that the upcoming OnePlus 6T will be running Android Pie out of the box. This is something which was under speculations for a long time but it is good to see the official confirmation coming ahead of the launch. It will become the second OnePlus smartphone of the year once it gets official on October 30th.
As per reports, OnePlus 6T is said to sport a 6.4-inch Full HD+ Optic AMOLED display with a notch at the top. It is expected to arrive in 64GB, 128GB, and 256GBinternal storage variants. On the back panel, it is reported to offer 16-megapixel and 20-megapixel dual rear cameras along with a 16-megapixel camera on the front panel. One of the biggest highlights of the OnePlus 6T is the addition of face unlock which OnePlus has been teasing in all of its marketing campaigns so far.
