Now that the first OnePlus Android Pie update is finally available, users are patiently waiting for more details. Nearly a month after Google’s Android 9 Pie release, OnePlus is already sending the new software to users. With that in mind, here we’ll go over everything we know about OnePlus Android 9 Pie updates and what you can expect.
Back in March Google pushed out an Android P Developer Preview to Pixel, Pixel XL, Pixel 2, and Pixel 2 XL users to start testing it as early as possible. Then, they officially released it to the world in early August as Android 9 Pie.
For now, Android 9 Pie is available for the Pixel, Pixel 2, Pixel XL and Pixel 2 XL. Not to mention a few other devices like the Essential phone and now the OnePlus 6. The 3rd beta is over, and now the company will shift focus to older OnePlus phones.
Actually, OnePlus was one of 11 manufacturers that partnered with Google to test the Android P Developer Preview early. As a result, the company is well ahead of schedule compared to previous years and delivered the first official Android Pie update within a month. We’re expecting that same fast path for older phones.
The company hasn’t confirmed any specific dates yet, aside from the first official OnePlus 6 Android Pie update on September 21st. However, thanks to previous release cycles we have a pretty good idea of what to expect. We can start to piece together the update pie, and give you a sense of when it’s coming.
In our slideshow below we’ll share information about a few things you need to know about Android Pie if you have the OnePlus 6, 5T, 5 and even the older OnePlus 3 and 3T.
OnePlus Android 9 Beta
For starters, those with the OnePlus 6 can get Android 9 Pie right now. To make things easier the company changed the name of Oxygen OS to match Google. The latest software for the OnePlus 6 is Oxygen OS 9 (Android 9 Pie). Plus, we're expecting the new OnePlus 6T to hit the market running Android Pie out of the box.
The company released its third Android P beta only a few days ago, so this is a quick turnaround. That said, we're hopeful the older OnePlus 5, 5T and even the 3 will get an Android Pie beta in the near future. We saw something similar last year, so it only makes sense. We believe more devices will get added to the beta before the end of September, or in early October.
