Earlier this year, OnePlus decided to blend its two teams that were working on Android updates in China and the rest of the world and merge them as one. This move was taken as they wanted to bring the latest software and features for all the devices at a faster pace. This move turned out to be a masterstroke as within no time the Android 7.0 Nougat update arrived.

Android 8.0 Release Timeframe
As we have already mentioned, all OnePlus 3 and 3T models will be getting the Android 8.0 Oreo update before the end of this year. This was also the case with Android 7.0 last year as they barely released it before the deadline. The update had lots of bugs and problems and it had to be re-released on January 9th which was beyond the deadline. Another “stable” update was released on January 18th.
The updates are still faster than Samsung, so you need to keep this in mind when you are waiting for more details. Since the latest update has officially released for Pixels devices, you should be expecting an announcement from OnePlus soon. The update is expected to arrive in late November to early December.
New features in Android 8.0 Oreo
In this new update, you will be finding lots of features which will help you do more with your device. The users will get to enjoy bundled notifications which will be easier to manage or the new picture-in-picture mode for videos which will allow you to watch videos or video chat while simultaneously doing some other activity on your device. There are also changes in the icons, easy text selection tools, and the auto-fill in apps such as Chrome. There are also changes to promote faster performance and to make the battery last longer.
