New Delhi:

While gadget freaks are on cloud nine and going crazy for OnePlus's latest launch OnePlus 5, Shenzhen based Chinese smartphone manufacturer has recently announced the update cycle for their last year's flagship duo, OnePlus 3 and OnePlus 3T on their latest blog. The step will definitely be significant for the users of these smartphones.

The company will also start moving its Open Beta Program from OnePlus 3 and OnePlus 3T to OnePlus 5 after the release of Android O for the two smartphones.

Talking about the development, OliverZ, head of Product, OnePlus has said, "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. After the OP3/3T have been updated to Android O, we’ll start moving the Open Beta Program from OP3/3T to OP5."

Meanwhile, quite surprisingly, the support for these yesteryear gadgets of the Chinese manufacturer will be withdrawn early in their lifecycle. The OnePlus 3T is which has been launched last year only, is already facing axe from the company. OnePlus is also reportedly following Google’s model of two-major-software-updates-per-device. This seems to be quite strange as Apple even manages to provide the latest OS updates to their 2013 release iPhone 5S.
