It’s not common for Android devices to get more than two major OS updates. So when a device is released, it will only be supported for two major OS updates in most cases. There have been deviations from the norm in a few cases but the two year cutoff is more or less the norm in the industry. You can imagine how happy OnePlus would have made its customers when it announced that it would update the OnePlus 3 and 3T with Android 9 Pie. The company has followed through on that promise today.
The OnePlus 3 and 3T are now receiving their Android 9 Pie update today. This is the third major Android OS update for the device. The OnePlus 3 series was released by the company in 2016. It’s now rolling out Android 9 Pie for both devices.
The OxygenOS 9.0.2 firmware update is now rolling out for the OnePlus 3 and the OnePlus 3T across the globe. It brings all of the features that are part and parcel of Android 9. This includes a new user interface, Google Lens support in the camera for an improved image recognition experience, an enhanced Do Not Disturb mode, and a lot more. The firmware update also brings the April 2019 Android security patch.
OnePlus is rolling out Android 9 Pie in stages for the OnePlus 3 and 3T. It will take a couple of days before the update becomes available for all users.
