Please provide android updates past Android Oreo for 3T

    DHUMSHAN , May 17, 2018 :
    I love OnePlus. I am proud of OnePlus. When my brother was searching for a phone, I recommended OnePlus X to him. When my father was going to buy a new phone I suggested him OnePlus 3. And when it was my time to get a new phone, no research was needed. I bought OnePlus 3T. We are a OnePlus family.
    However, when I remember the fact that I won't be getting newer Android versions, I feel sad. OnePlus has time and again accomplished what it had set out to do. It has created an unique place in technological world. It is not a small company anymore.
    As far as I can tell, OnePlus can continue Oxygen OS development program for OnePlus 3T past Android Oreo. If it is so we would be forced to buy new devices, having a knack to outperform yourself year by year with each new device, you don't need to employ the planned obsolescence strategy.
    If not these couple increments, I am sure that I will be buying OnePlus phones for the rest of my life whenever I am able to afford them.
    Meanwhile, please oh please, support OnePlus 3T with latest Android updates for a couple of years.
    Thank you for making such wonderful devices. Yours truly,
    A OnePlus user.

    You could have written this in an email and sent it to Carl, and I still doubt that would change anything.
    I'm sorry to say but it's quite clear what's gonna happen. I don't like it either, that the 3 will get atleast 2 yrs of support while the 3T will die with a shorter lifespan, even though it is a little more capable.
    It is what it is, man.

    flash custom rom or buy a new phone. The good thing is that OnePlus phones always had a good community with dedicated developers on XDA, so there's a lot to choose from

    If OP are going to keep releasing T models then they really need to support it an extra 6 months.

    All major brands give a minimum of 2 years updates as far as I aware so In reality you are getting less updates buying a T then not?

    To tell you honestly, no one cares....
    You already knew about the software support right?

    There's no point in Whining...

    As suggested by others, go the custom ROM path.

    Well the software on 3t was carried on from the 3, so 3t gets the same support as 3

    T models are a refresh of those models, so it gets the same software support as the main models

    @DHUMSHAN after 8.1 OP3/3T will continue to get security updates, but it will not get android Pee.

    On the other hand you can go down the path of custom ROMs, you can still get 2 major updates or even more.

    And when it launched, they said that it will get the same support as 3. I really don't see the problem.
