OnePlus is known for providing software support for three years from the day of the launch but still, it can be tricky for many to keep a track of it. This seems to be the reason OnePlus has set up a dedicated page revealing software-end date for the OnePlus 8 series and OnePlus Nord smartphones.
The table shows that the OnePlus Nord will keep receiving software updates under July 2023. As for the OnePlus 8, OnePlus 8 Pro, and OnePlus 8 5G will be updated until April 2023. It means users of these smartphones easily have about three years before they start thinking about the end of software support.
It should be noted that the end of software support does not mean your OnePlus phones will stop working after the deadline. It only means that OnePlus will stop rolling out any more software updates including security patches. It means while you can continue using the phone, as usual, you should not expect any fixes for performance and security related issues that may arise post-deadline.
OnePlus has currently revealed software-end dates only for the aforementioned four devices. We can expect the team to add more devices as time will pass. As and when that will happen, we will make sure to keep you posted.
