Android O Will Be Last Major Update For OnePlus 3, 3T

Tyler Lee August 11, 2017

At the rate phones are being released, it is safe to say that companies tend to stretch themselves too thin which is when when it comes to Android updates, many companies pick and choose which devices they want to focus on, and more often than not after a couple of years, you can kiss goodbye to said updates.

This is why it doesn’t really come as a surprise to learn that OnePlus will be done with the OnePlus 3 and 3T after the Android O update. According to a post on the OnePlus forums, the company’s Head of Product Oliver Z revealed and confirmed that Android O will be the last major Android update for the OnePlus 3 and 3T.

However this doesn’t mean that OnePlus will be abandoning either handset. Both phones will still receive updates such as security patches from time to time, but don’t expect them to receive the next major Android update, which assuming Google keeps to their naming scheme should be Android P and should be released in 2018.

According to Oliver Z, “Android O is going to be the last Android version update we’ll release for OP3/3T. We’ll continue to release security patch updates for the foreseeable future, and offer support for individual application updates.” That being said, it is unclear when Android O will be officially released. We heard a rumor last week that suggested that it could be this week, but so far we haven’t seen anything.

OnePlus 3, OnePlus 3T To Get Android O This Year

Tyler Lee June 27, 2017

The benefits to being a smaller company with few products in its portfolio is that OnePlus gets to concentrate more and pour more resources and efforts into products that they do have. This also means that unlike bigger companies like Samsung, OnePlus only has a few devices that needs updating, which is why both the OnePlus 3 and OnePlus 3T received the Android Nougat update last year relatively earlier than other devices.

The good news is that it looks like that tradition of speed/efficiency will be applied to the next major Android release, Android O. In a post on Reddit, OnePlus has confirmed that both the OnePlus 3 and OnePlus 3T will be receiving the update to Android O by the end of this year. When exactly remains to be seen as Google has yet to officially release Android O, but presumably it should be in the coming months.

As to when OnePlus will get around to releasing it, last year we saw OnePlus release Nougat in December, so presumably it should take them just as long as well. There was no mention of the recently launched OnePlus 5 and its update to Android O, but presumably it should also be updated within the same time frame, if not earlier. Either way we’ll keep our eyes peeled for more information regarding the update, so check back with us in the coming months for the details.

Android O For OnePlus 3 And OnePlus 3T Confirmed

Adnan Farooqui May 31, 2017


OnePlus fans are anxiously waiting for more information about the company’s next flagship smartphone. OnePlus CEO Pete Lau has provided a bit of information today which concerns the company’s existing handsets. Lau has confirmed that the next major Android release, currently referred to as Android O, will be coming to the OnePlus 3 and OnePlus 3T when it finally goes live later this year.

Lau confirmed over Twitter that people were asking him about Android O being released for these handsets so he thought it was prudent to confirm that the OnePlus 3 and OnePlus 3T will both be updated to Android O when the time comes.

OnePlus released the OnePlus 3 and OnePlus 3T last year. Both handsets were running Android 6.0 Marshmallow when they arrived. Since Android devices are covered for major updates for at least two years, it’s not surprising to know that they will get the Android O update in due time.

You can imagine that this announcement hasn’t made a lot of OnePlus 2 owners happy. They would like to get Android O for their handsets as well but since their devices are over two years old, it’s unlikely that OnePlus is going to release the update for that handset.

Lau obviously didn’t say when the Android O update will be released for the OnePlus 3 and OnePlus 3T, that’s because Google hasn’t confirmed when it will release this update. It hasn’t even confirmed what Android O is going to be called officially.

A lot of you have been asking, so I’m proud to say Android O will come to OnePlus 3 and 3T.

The OnePlus 3 Touch Latency Has Been Fixed

Tyler Lee April 7, 2017

While a lot of phones have specs that look similar, it’s the subtleties that makes all the difference. For example it could be how manufacturers optimize their UI to make it smooth, or how to squeeze out the best possible images from sensors using their own algorithms and software.

In the case of the OnePlus 3, not all touchscreens were made equal because if you might recall, back in 2016 a developer pointed out how when compared to other Android phones, the OnePlus 3’s touch latency was the “worst”. Granted it might not necessarily be very perceivable by most users, but it does impact the overall experience of the phone.

Touch latency ✔️
Alert Slider ⏰

— Carl Pei (@getpeid) April 6, 2017

The good news is that touch latency on the OnePlus 3 has been fixed, or at least that’s according to a tweet by OnePlus co-founder Carl Pei in a recent tweet. According to Pei’s tweet, he has suggested that the touch latency for the OnePlus 3 has been addressed, and that they are now working on the alert slider.

We’re not sure if this has been addressed in the previous patch/update that was released for the phone or if it’s in reference to an upcoming one, but we are assuming the latter. Unfortunately there’s no timeline as to when the update will be released, but either way it’s good news for OnePlus 3 owners.

OnePlus 3 Update Brings Google Assistant

Adnan Farooqui March 7, 2017


Google confirmed not too long ago that it will soon release Google Assistant for all Android smartphones running version 6.0 Marshmallow and up. This means that the AI assistant is no longer exclusive to Pixel smartphones. The release kicked off a couple of days back and now a OnePlus 3 update has brought the Google Assistant to this handset.

Assistant is Google’s artificial intelligence-powered virtual helper that can do a wide variety of tasks. It was previously limited to the company’s Pixel smartphones and the Google Home smart speaker but now it’s available for a wide variety of Android handsets. Rumors even suggest that Google Assistant might be released for iOS as well.

Google Assistant has now been rolled out to English users in the United States, Canada, Australia, Germany, and the United Kingdom. You need to be based in one of those markets to use this feature on your Android smartphone that’s running on at least Android 6.0 Marshmallow. Google Assistant will get support for more languages throughout this year.

OnePlus has rolled out an over-the-air update for the OnePlus 3 which brings Google Assistant to its handset. It’s unclear right now when this update is going to be released for the OnePlus 3T which is more than capable of powering Assistant as well.

Android 7.0 Nougat Released For OnePlus 3, OnePlus 3T

Tyler Lee January 1, 2017

android nougatBack in November, OnePlus said that they would be releasing the Android 7.0 Nougat update for both the OnePlus 3 and OnePlus 3T in December, and also promised that they would be available by the end of the year. Call it cutting it close or whatever you want to call it, but it looks like OnePlus has kept to their word.

In a series of tweets by the company’s co-founder, Carl Pei, it seems that OnePlus will begin the gradual rollout of the stable build for Android Nougat for both phones tonight. Like we said it is cutting it pretty close and we’re pretty sure that not all users will be able to update to Nougat by the end of 2016, but we guess it’s a good way to end the year, and also a pretty decent way to bring in the new year.

There have also been new posts on both the OnePlus 3 and OnePlus 3T forums. Both posts are identical and basically tell users what kind of changes they can expect in OxygenOS 4.0. This includes new notification design, a new settings menu design, multi-window view, and more along with the rest of whatever else Nougat brings to the table (save for some features which are exclusive to the Google Pixel handsets).

OnePlus 4 Release May Be Skipped For Ceramic OnePlus 5

Adnan Farooqui December 5, 2016

oneplus_3_002
OnePlus came out with the OnePlus 3 earlier this year. It remained the company’s flagship smartphone for about eight months before OnePlus decided to launch an upgraded variant that it’s calling the OnePlus 3T. There are some questions about how the company’s smartphone lineup is going to progress from this and rumor has it that it’s going to skip the OnePlus 4 release in favor of the OnePlus 5 which is claimed to tout a ceramic body. Superstition may also play a part in this.

The number 4 is generally considered to be unlucky in China and we’ve seen companies like Vivo skip the number 4 for their handsets as well. Perhaps that’s one of the reasons why the OnePlus 4 release might be skipped in favor of the OnePlus 5.

Rumor has it that OnePlus is going to launch the OnePlus 5 in the first half of 2017. It’s also claimed that the handset is going to have a ceramic body. Apparently, it’s going to source the ceramic material from the same company that supplied it to Xiaomi for the Mi Mix.

There’s no word on the specifications at this point in time but considering that the handset is due until next year, it’s quite likely that the OnePlus 5 is going to run Android 7.0 Nougat straight out of the box.

None of this has been officially confirmed by the company as yet so take it with a grain of salt.

OnePlus Promises To Look Into Touch Latency Issues

Tyler Lee November 30, 2016

oneplus_3_001Yesterday we reported that according to a developer and subsequently confirmed by quite a few OnePlus 3 users, it seems that the handset is suffering from touch latency issues in which it was suggested that it was OnePlus’ tweaks to the operating system that is to blame, not the hardware supplied by their partners.

The good news is that if you’re wondering what the company plans to do about, it seems that they will look into it, but only after Android 7.0 Nougat has been rolled out. This is according to a tweet by OnePlus co-founder Carl Pei in which he wrote, “We hear the touch latency feedback, and will look at it soon. N has higher priority.”

Note that OnePlus does not guarantee a fix, but at least they are acknowledging it. We should point out that this seems to mostly affect the OnePlus 3. This is because an update issued to the OnePlus 3T seems to have addressed the issue, or at least in part as the changelog for the update mentions the touch display and also touch accuracy.

No word on when exactly we can expect a fix either, but OnePlus did previously state that the Nougat update should be rolled out to both phones by the end of the year, so the fix (if it arrives) will probably be next month or early next year. In the meantime we guess OnePlus users will have no choice but to live with it.

Developer Calls OnePlus 3 Touch Latency The ‘Worst’

Tyler Lee November 30, 2016

oneplus_3_002With capacitive touchscreens replacing resistive touchscreens, it marked the start of a new era of how we interacted with devices. It opened the door to gestures, new types of games, and how we interact with apps. However not all capacitive touchscreens were created equal, as one developer has since called out OnePlus on the OnePlus 3’s touchscreen latency.

According to developer arter97, he claims that the touch latency on the OnePlus 3 is the worst he’s ever seen. “OnePlus 3 has the worst latency I’ve ever had on an Android device. Smoothness is not equal to latency. OnePlus 3’s hardware is “smooth”. And by smooth, it means the GPU can consistently handle 60fps output. Latency is another thing, since latency is big, contents beneath the finger always follow your finger slowly(more noticeable when you scroll slowly).”

His claims seem to be backed by other users on the OnePlus forums who are claiming similar issues. It has been suggested that this is more of a software/optimization issue because about a week ago, OnePlus issued an update to the OnePlus 3T that updated the touch panel’s firmware, an update that the OnePlus 3 did not get.

We’re not sure if OnePlus has plans to update the OnePlus 3, especially since the phone has been discontinued in the US and Europe, but hopefully they will as it would not be nice to leave existing customers hanging. Now whether or not the touch latency can be felt during usage will probably vary from user to user. Those who are more keen might notice it, while those who aren’t might not even know about it until it’s been pointed out, but what do you guys think? Have you noticed any latency issues with the OnePlus 3’s touchscreen?

OnePlus 3 Will Get Updates As Long As OnePlus 3T Does

Adnan Farooqui November 22, 2016

oneplus_3_6
If you were feeling a bit down because OnePlus decided to effectively make your OnePlus 3 a second-tier device by launching the OnePlus 3T, you can find solace in some good news that the company has confirmed today. OnePlus has already confirmed that both the OnePlus 3 and OnePlus 3T will receive software updates at the same time. It has now confirmed that the OnePlus 3 is going to receive updates as long as the OnePlus 3T does.

What this means is that OnePlus has basically extended the OnePlus 3’s shelf life by six months. New Android devices are normally supported for major updates for at least two years after they’re released.

OnePlus 3T arrives some six months after the OnePlus 3 was released but now that the company has confirmed that both devices will remain tied together as far as software updates are concerned, this means that the OnePlus 3 gets an additional six months of software support.

“The OnePlus 3 will continue to receive updates alongside the OnePlus 3T until the newer device reaches the end of its update life cycle,” is the official word from OnePlus.

OnePlus hasn’t really provided a precise end-of-life date for its latest device but you can be sure that it’s at least going to be around for a couple of years. As long as it’s around, the OnePlus 3 will continue to receive new software updates.
