OnePlus said that Oreo would be the last platform update for the two-year-old OnePlus 3/3T, but the company is now changing its stance. In a forum thread, OnePlus confirmed that both the OnePlus 3 and 3T will receive the Android Pie update.
The company said that after "internal discussions and evaluation," it decided to offer the Android 9 Pie update to either device in lieu of Android 8.1 Oreo. Both the OnePlus 3 and 3T are currently running Android 8.0 Oreo, and they'll directly make the switch to Pie, skipping Android 8.1 altogether.
OnePlus' decision is welcome news to fans using the 3/3T, and while there's no information on when the Android Pie update will be delivered to either handset, OnePlus mentions that the upcoming Android version will first make its way to the OnePlus 6, followed by the OnePlus 5/5T, and then hit the 3/3T.
