OnePlus 3T, OnePlus 3 to get Android 7.0 Nougat update in December

OnePlus 3T is expected to receive Android Nougat update in December. However, an update to OnePlus 3 will be released earlier than the latest version. The recently released OnePlus 3T is loaded with Android 6.0 Marshmallow, which is pretty disappointing. The rumors had reported that the new handset is expected to ship with the latest Android platform.

During the launch event of OnePlus 3T, the company had announced that it is gearing up to roll out Android 7.0 Nougat update in December. Moreover, the OnePlus 3 released in July 2016 will also get Android N update during the same time frame. There have been speculations on the rumor mills over the last few months about the fact that the handset will get Android N update soon.

OnePlus 3T will get Android Nougat in December

Even though the OnePlus 3 will receive the beta version of Android N by the end of November, you need not have to expect any update for OnePlus 3T. However, the latest version of OnePlus will be a big refresh in December.

We don’t have any information about the expected date of launch but it is almost confirmed that an update to Android Nougat will hit OnePlus 3T by the second half of December.

In the meantime, the company had disclosed that both OnePlus 3 and OnePlus 3T would get updates via OTA at the same time in future. This means, when the company released an update for OnePlus 3T, the same update will be available for OnePlus 3.

OnePlus 3T specifications

On the specifications front, the OnePlus 3T features a 5.5-inch FHD Optic AMOLED Corning Gorilla Glass 4 protected display, Snapdragon 821 processor, Adreno 530 graphics, 6GB RAM, 64/128GB internal storage, 16MP rear camera, 16Mp front-facing snapper loaded with Android 6.0 Marshmallow. A 3400mAh battery completes the package.

It remains to be seen as to when OnePlus 3T will be released in India. The phone will be a bonus for OnePlus lover because it ships with an improved processor, a high capacity front camera coupled with a large battery.
