The OnePlus 7 and OnePlus 7T, two of its most popular lineups, will no longer receive software updates from OnePlus. The company has acknowledged that its community website is being built.
The OxygenOS 12 MP3 build for the OnePlus 7 and OnePlus 7T series is the last upgrade, according to the Chinese smartphone manufacturer. The OnePlus 7 and 7T family of smartphones have received two updates to the Android operating system and a full year of security patches from the firm.
The OnePlus 7T series debuted with OxygenOS 10 out of the box, while the OnePlus 7 series arrived in May 2019 with OxygenOS 9. The company announced its decision to stop providing upgrades for the OnePlus 7 and OnePlus 7T series in a forum update. The company wrote in the article, “According to the maintenance schedule, MP3 will be the last build for OnePlus 7/7 Pro. Thank you all for your help and attention to OnePlus.”
A new software update policy for incoming flagship smartphones will be in effect starting in 2023, according to the smartphone manufacturer. According to OnePlus, some of its upcoming flagship handsets would receive security updates for five years and significant Android updates for four years.
Recall that OnePlus declared last year that all of its devices released after the OnePlus 8 series would get three significant Android updates and four years of security patches.
