OnePlus fully commits to Android updates - time to get a OnePlus 6?

The Chinese company has now announced 'OnePlus Software Maintenance Schedule' programme guaranteeing platform updates for two years and security patch updates for three years.

OnePlus notes that the OnePlus 3 and 3T are pretty much at the end of that line when it comes to software updates, but the company is going to release one more open beta for the devices soon, and in early July it will launch an update to the stable build. OnePlus, a company who once had a rocky update history, has slowly been improving in the area since the release of the OnePlus 3 two years ago.

In case you were wondering how this will look for the OnePlus 3 and 3T, OnePlus says that they'll continue providing regular OTA updates until November of this year (2018), followed by an additional year of Android security patches.
