OnePlus is finally addressing one of the biggest concerns surrounding its phones since the company's inception - the longevity of software support. According to the detailed post, the company will provide regular software updates including new Android versions, Android security patches and new features once every two months for up to 24 months after the launch of the device.

The models which have been finalised to receive these facilities aren't just the latest OnePlus 6 models but the company will be taking care of phones starting from the OnePlus 3 and OnePlus 3T and it applies to all the higher spec versions in the range. The OnePlus 2, being almost three years old at this point, is obviously coming to the end of its operational life.

Under this schedule, all OnePlus phones (including T variants) will receive 2 years of "regular software updates" from the date of release. At present OnePlus rolls out Android updates for phones that were launched for a maximum of two years ago.

OnePlus were one of the chosen partners that saw inclusion in the Android P Developer Preview as the first time Google has widened the availability of new firmware beyond Pixel devices. While any future or current OnePlus device could benefit from this, it still raised questions based on previous experiences with OnePlus and software updates that software updates could abruptly stop quite quickly after Android P. This means the OnePlus 6 smartphone will be supported till 2021 with Android security fixes at least.
