    What is the expected delay between the Android security releases/patches and when released by OneTouch? Phone will be used for work primarily. Company audits compliance. Samsung releases updates on average 3-6 months after the core Android release is released causing the phone to be out of compliance for 3-6 months. This prevents access to company apps on the phone while it is out of compliance. Hence, Samsung is not a good choice. Hoping OnePlus releases shortly after Google releases the Android update.

    It depends on how old the device is, as OnePlus also releases the updates to next version of Android from latest phones to older ones, flagships, followed by the mid-range.
    As of now, OnePlus 9 and 9Pro have received A12 and next phones are expected to follow. You can check the phone's respective thread section for details about latest update.

    OnePlus security patches are usually Bi monthly but they do a staged rollout so you could get it in 3 months or download the update manually and update it yourself via local upgrade. Do a backup of your data before you upgrade any phone or computer in general.

    That said samsung is the one of the most consistent in terms of security patches or even Android updates in recent times especially their Flagships other than Google unless you are getting a carrier locked variant. Again I'm not sure if the work compliance policy needs latest security patches or Android version updates
