OnePlus is currently toiling hard to get Android Oreo to its flagship users. So, any OS updates beyond that are currently out of their minds. But that’s not the case with users and fans. Questions are already being raised for Android P or 9.0 on the OnePlus 5.
The OnePlus 5 launched this year with Android Nougat on board. And Google recommends atleast two major OS updates for phones these days. So, apart from Oreo it should easily get Android P. However, nothing is obligatiory for manufacturers these days and unless you get official confirmation nothing is certain. Thankfully, OnePlus CEO Lei Jun, in a Q&A gave an affirmaitvie answer to the below question.
In the Q&A, one user asked the CEO, Will the OnePlus 5 be updated to Android 9.0. Jun gave an affirmative answer saying that Android 9.0 won’t be released until next year Google I/O. He further said that as soon as development starts, we expect to deliver Android 9.0 by the end of next year to OnePlus 5.
Currently, Oreo betas are running for both of this year’s flagships and are ready to get updated soon. However, the big question is, will the OnePlus 3/3T get Android 9.0 update. That will be a question many users will be waiting to get answered.
