OnePlus has launched the new flagship smartphone called OnePlus 3T which sports the powerful Qualcomm Snapdragon 821 processor. Fortunately, both devices, OnePlus 3 and OnePlus 3T are expected to receive an Android 7.0 Nougat update before this year ends or on December 15. But the rumors are widespread that the update for OnePlus One and OnePlus 2 is likely to arrive next year.
According to the Android Authority, updates for OnePlus 3 and OnePlus 3T will be arriving at same time and the OnePlus 3 will get every update the OnePlus 3T receives, effectively adding six months to its update shelf life.
There were also reports claiming that the OnePlus 2 will also get the Android Nougat update this year while the OnePlus One is not likely to get the firmware update as it is more two years old and runs on Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 chipset that is said to be not compatible with Android 7.0 Nougat's Vulcan API.
The OnePlus 3, which was out six months earlier than the 3T, will continue to receive updates along with the OnePlus 3T until the newer device reaches the end of its update life cycle. This is great news for any OnePlus 3 owners worried about the update of their now old device.
The company is releasing the update via OTA at the same time and also plans to get the OS running on both the phone at the same time so that whenever the OnePlus 3T gets an update, it instantly gets available on the OnePlus 3 as well.
OnePlus CEO Carl Pei has also confirmed this news on twitter saying, "The beta program for 3T starts post stable N."
In the meantime, there are also some reports which are suggesting that users of OnePlus 3 and OnePlus 3T are suffering from touch latency issues. The OnePlus 3's touch is said to delay for about 93ms, almost double than average Android flagship that usually lands at 50ms.
OnePlus Co-Founder Carl Pei also responded to this complaint via Twitter and said that they will fix the problem soon however Nougat is their priority for now.
While some reports also suggest that the company will fix the latency together with the Android Nougat update for OnePlus 3 and OnePlus 3T.
However, the company is still to give its official statement to about the Android Nougat update for OnePlus 3, OnePlus 3T, OnePlus 2, and OnePlus.
