As beta work has already started for OnePlus 5 and 5T so soon after that we are expecting OnePlus 3 work will be in progress.Android pie on OnePlus 3OnePlus announced the OnePlus 3 and 3T in 2016. Since the two are separated by just five months, OnePlus chose to treat them as one device, which, essentially, they are. Usually, updates are rolled out to the pair at the same time and they always bring the same features.

Guys the wait is over as OnePlus has started the stable build to roll out on incremental basis, sooner or later in coming days you all will receive the update and your OnePlus 3 and #T running on Android Pie.

It is a special Request from OnePlus and From our side as well do not use VPN to get the update early as it may cause some issue its better to wait trust me i myself has experienced the issue after doing this so avoid using VPN.

The Chinese OEM beat a host of companies to Android Oreo, where OnePlus 3 was among the first non-Google devices to receive the OTA update. Even more interesting is that the phone beat the newer OnePlus 3 and 5T to Oreo. Android pie on OnePlus 3

As OnePlus 3 and 3T supports 6GB RAM and Snapdragon 820 and 821 SoC which is yet more powerful than may other mid-range chipset so if they are getting android pie update then why not OnePlus 3 and 3T. As we know the OnePlus is company which is boosted just after the launch of OnePlus 3 and there is no doubt in it that today also it is fast and snappy device and used vastly through out the world.

Expected release date: First Quarter of 2019
OnePlus 3 Android 9 Pie update
Android OSRelease date
Android 6.0 MarshmallowPre-installed
Android 7.0 NougatReleased on 20 Jan 2017
Android 7.1 NougatReleased on 17 Apr 2017
Android 8.0 OreoReleased on 24 Nov 2017
Android 8.1 OreoSkipped in favor of Pie update
Android 9 PieExpected in Q1 2019

With Oreo, this was the second major OS OnePlus 3 was receiving, which means that it doesn’t stand a chance for another major OS upgrade. WRONG!

Surprising as it is, the OnePlus team has made it official that the OnePlus 3 is will receive the OS update to Android 9 Pie. We understand it’s a bit crazy for a non-Google OEM to announce a major update for three years, but we’re so happy to see this from OnePlus. Maybe Samsung and Huawei and other OEMs take note.

OnePlus didn’t reveal and target launch date for the OnePlus 3 Android 9 update but we can guess based on previous roll out of similar major updates. We do expect the software team at OnePlus to give a green work on Android 9 update for OnePlus 6, OnePlus 5 and 5T sets ahead of OnePlus 3 (and 3T), which is why we think the Q1 2019 release date is highly likely.

BTW, the Pie update will be the third major OS upgrade for the OnePlus 3, which would also mean that like the Pixel handsets, the OnePlus sets will be receiving as many as three major OS upgrades.
