OnePlus 3 and 3T users might think their phones are outdated, but OnePlus and Google do not agree
Last month, OnePlus officially announced a software enhancement program for old and new smartphones. As a developer of the Android operating system, Google promises radical changes to its Android OS upgrades and improvements every two years. When we look over this time, we see that the OnePlus 3 and 3T need to get Android Oreo 8.0 or 8.1. Earlier, OnePlus pledged to publish the Android P update for both models.
When we look at this description, we see firstly that the OnePlus 3 and 3T will skip Android 8.1 updates. Because devices with Android 8.1 Oreo versions get the Android P update much earlier than previous versions. This means that in the Android P update sequence, OnePlus 6 will be updated first, then One Plus 5 and 5T, and finally One Plus 3 and 3T will be updated. In this respect, the latest Android P update will be the model 3T and 3 as the opposite. So those users who have been waiting for Oreo's operating system for a long time will have to wait for Android P for a while.
Operating system versions do not have a ROM version that OnePlus has published for OxygenOS 5.1.X. In this position, there is a positive development for OnePlus 3T owners.

Those with smartphone models would start looking for a third-party ROM to install Android P, but this will no longer be necessary. We think that more information will be provided by OnePlus over the coming months and various updates will be published on this issue.
