The very latest Android OS version after Nougat 7 the name of which was expected to be Android Oreo‘s launch is officially announced soon although it still remains unknown when will Android Oreo will be released for each device while many people are still waiting for the arrival of Android 7 since Nougat did not make it for more than 15% of all the devices.
Android O update information for Oneplus 5 and Oneplus 3 and 3T devices is available in this post.
As we already know, Android 8.0 update is released for a couple of devices succesfully while many devices were still waiting for Android Nougat Update release dates. And Oneplus smart devices are one of those mid-range smart devices that releases the updates regularly. And the most commonly used devices such as OnePlus 5 and Oneplus 3 and 3T is highly expected by many to upgrade to the newest Android OS 8.0 soon.
Android O Oreo Update Release Dates for Oneplus?
It is expected that the Android 8.0 comes to Oneplus Devices by the end of december of 2017.
It is not possible to tell you an exact release date of Android O8 for Oneplus devices since the dates depend on many components but it has been several weeks that the CEO of OnePlus Pete Lau confirmed that users of OnePlus 3 and OnePlus 3T will receive the update for Android O, Android 8.0.
However, he had not mention any calendar on the arrival of the next update.
When will Android O arrive to OnePlus 5 and OnePlus 3 / 3T?
During an Ask Me Anything (AMA) session a few hours ago on Reddit, a OnePlus employee spilled some information on when Android O would arrive for OnePlus 3 and 3T. He made no mention of the company’s latest flagship, but presumably the upgrade would come even earlier than last year’s models.
When one of the participants in the talk asked the OnePlus manager about the availability of Android O for OnePlus 5, OnePlus 3T and OnePlus 3, the representative of the Chinese company answered that Android O woukd arrive for these phones “within this year probably at the end of it” . The OnePlus employee did not tell us any particular date, but at least we know that at best we only have to wait 6 months or even less although these promises are not always kept.. They say nothing else but a sorry word when they can not release an Android update on a promised date 🙂
What will the Features of Android O8 to OnePlus 5 and other mobiles of OnePlus?
In the launch of Android O for the recently released OnePlus 5 should come either before or at the same time as the software for its more direct predecessors. The latest revision of Google’s operating system was officially announced during the Google I / O 2017 event in May. Currently the software is in the classic process of previewing developers, waiting for the final version of Android O is about to arrive in the month of August this year.
The software is expected to come pre-installed on the Google Pixel 2 and Pixel XL 2, although speculation also indicates that the LG V30 to be introduced in August will be the first smartphone away from the Google brand to be released to the market with Android O. Therefore, you can guess that OnePlus can make software available for OnePlus 3 and 3T, as well as for OnePlus 5, in the fourth quarter of this year.
Android version 8.0
Last year, the OnePlus 3T was officially launched in November 2016 and the Android Nougat update hit the smartphone in late December. So it seems that OnePlus is not going to delay the release of the Android 8 update for OnePlus 5. As for the rest of OnePlus smartphones, as has been revealed recently, users of OnePlus 2 will not receive the update Android O.
