Just after the launch of OnePlus 6 in 2018 OnePlus announced in its community the devices which will be receiving the Android Pie 9.0 update, OnePlus 6/6T, 5/5T, 3/3T. As it was good news that even after the 2-year-old model OnePlus is providing the latest android update, as Both phones launched with Android 6.0 Marshmallow out f the box, got an update to Android Nougat and then Android Oreo.
Most Android manufacturers only stop at two major OS updates But OnePlus 3/3T are still powerful smartphones as bundled with 6GB RAM and Snapdragon 820/821 SoC which is still pretty decent processor at least better than mid-range processor and can easily handle the Android Pie 9.0 update.
The Android Pie update may be hitting both devices soon as models running the latest version of Android have been spotted on Geekbench. The OnePlus 3 was benchmarked a few days ago (January 3) but the Android Pie-running OnePlus 3T was benchmarked on December 27.
Currently OnePlus 3 and OnePlus 3T run Oxygen OS 5.0.8 which is based on Android 8.0 Oreo. OnePlus canceled the update to Android 8.1 Oreo in favor of the update to Pie. The update to Pie should also bring a new security patch when it begins to roll out. Check out the full list of official updates of OnePlus 3.
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 on your OnePlus 3 and 3T for Android Pie the change log is shown in above image..
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 OnePlus 3 and OnePlus 3T featuring 5.5-inch 1080p Optic-Amoled display, a front-mounted fingerprint scanner, and a 16MP rear camera. Whereas OnePlus 3 has – Snapdragon 820 and OnePlus 3T has Snapdragon 821; front cameras on OnePlus 3 is – 8MP and OnePlus 3T has 16MP; and their battery capacities – 3,000mAh against the OnePlus 3T’s 3,400mAh battery. The OnePlus 3T also has a variant with 128GB of storage.
As, we are expecting that in the first week of February the incremental roll out for OnePlus 3 and 3T Android pie 9.0 will begin. As OnePlus 5 and 5T have already started receiving the Android Pie Update.
In the Month of February we saw message of the OnePlus community employee stating that “I tried the latest (testing) build for 3/3T this afternoon and it looks good, i think we are pretty close to the good news now. However, each official update needs to meet our release standards, which require more time. maybe we can share a beta build first“.
First we thought that in the month of February OnePlus will finalize Pie for One Plus 3 and 3T but only beta version was available not the stable version. This time OnePlus did not shared the Beta version also yet. so, we are expecting to get final stable build for OnePlus 3 and 3T in month of April.
Do let us know in comment section if you own OnePlus 3 or 3T, it’s been two and half year I am owning OnePlus 3 and eagerly waiting for Pie update to see how phone performs after this update.
