OnePlus promised long-term support for its OnePlus 3 and OnePlus 3T and it has delivered on its promise. In the previous months, the company released the very first public beta of Android Pie for both smartphones. This was later followed by community builds and a second beta. The company has now finally started rolling out the stable release of Android Pie for the OnePlus 3 and OnePlus 3T. Both smartphones are now receiving OxygenOS 9.0.2 stable update via an over-the-air update.
This update is bound to instil a breath of fresh air into both smartphones. This update brings a new and revamped Pie UI, support for Google Duo calls via the dialler as well as the ability to fire up Google Lens directly from the camera app. In addition to this, users will also be able to customize the time range of Do Not Disturb mode. Needless to say, the update will also come with multiple bug fixes and system improvements.
Unfortunately, this update comes with the April security patch. Considering it’s almost the end of May, it’s sad that OnePlus has released this update with an outdated security patch. While this will be the last major update for both devices, it’s still amazing to see that OnePlus has taken the trouble of making this possible.
