OnePlus is popular in the Android smartphone category to provide flagship experiences at less pricing. Recently, the company has given OxygenOS 13 updates to their devices which adds new features, security patches, bug fixes, and improvements. Almost one and a half years ago, OnePlus brought a new software maintenance schedule. In that schedule, they actually merged OnePlus and Oppo codebase (software) “to improve efficiency and standardization”. This merge actually happened between two operating systems OxygenOS from OnePlus and ColorOS from OPPO. Now OnePlus has promised that new premium smartphones from 2023 will get four major Android updates and five years of security updates.
OnePlus’s Newly expanded software commitment
This announcement of the software update policy will cover only premium phones except for the Nord series. This means OnePlus flagship devices will receive 4 major Android updates based on OxygenOS and 5 years of security updates from 2023. Actually, the company is trying to keep their user loyal to them because people change their phones if they don’t receive android updates and goes to the other brands. This policy will cover the latest features required to power OnePlus fast and smooth experience throughout the lifetime of that smartphone.
OnePlus representatives haven’t confirmed which existing flagship phones will receive this extended support policy and the Nord series won’t get it this is confirmed already. This all happened in OxygenOS 13 Media Roundtable meeting. One meeting was done in London through Open Ear Forum (OEF) as we informed about the already existing article.
Currently, OnePlus is giving three years of major updates and four years of security updates to its flagship devices. OnePlus 10 Pro and 10T have received a bunch of OxygenOS 13 updates where they have fixed many issues like flickering, lagging while switching apps, and display while on the lock screen.
