    Oneplus is smart.If you have looked at the history of Oneplus devices,they have always released an outdated Android while launching the 'T' variant.For example,Android Oreo existed in November 2017 and yet 5T was launched with nougat.Why?The reason is simple :
    Oneplus has promised 3 years of updates i.e roughly 3 Android versions(2 years of feature+1 additional year for security).Since the 5T was released with nougat,and even if they announce Android Pie as the last update,it won't break their promised since Oneplus has already provided support to 3 Android versions(Nougat,Oreo and Pie).Had they introduced Oreo,they would have been forced to provide support till Android Q.
    So this would be the action plan of Oneplus:
    Release 6T with 8.1.Immediately provide Android P beta builds for 6 and 6T,launch stable Android Pie within a couple of weeks after the 1+6T's launch.Alongside that,start providing bets builds to the 5/T as well.
    This way,1+6 will receive Oreo,Pie and 'Q'.Three Android versions that's it!
    Even Samsung follows the same strategy.Note 9 doesn't have Android P out of the box.
    Sorry to say this but all the existing oneplus users will need to wait at least 2 months before the official,stable rollout of Android P.

    Wrong it's 2 years of android updates then a year of security making the 3 years.

    There is a unified 6T thread where all 6T threads should go

    https://forums.oneplus.com/threads/unified-oneplus-6t-speculation-discussion.834259/

    and there is the maintenance schedule again for you to read properly.

    But yes they aren't stupid and any T series always gets the same as the phone released 5-6 months before it of the same number.

    Thanks for the info.However,I just mentioned "3 years of updates-and not anything specific i.e feature or security".So technically I'm not wrong.Anyways,I have edited the post for more info.

    That will mostly be in September.Also,6T is rumoured to launch a bit early,compared to the release dates of other 'T' variants.

    I think I got that wrong, it's weird but the dev previews should have been here by now judging by the previous 3 releases.

    Maybe it's not a dev preview, maybe it's an open beta.

    This time, I'm pretty sure that OnePlus 6T would launch with Android Pie. Let's hope for the best!
