Now that the first OnePlus Android Pie update is finally available, users are patiently waiting for more details. Just a few months after Google’s Android 9 Pie release, OnePlus is already sending the new software to select users. With that in mind, here we’ll go over everything we know about OnePlus Android 9 Pie updates and what you can expect.
For now, Android 9 Pie is available for Google’s Pixel family of devices, including the new Pixel 3. Not to mention a few other devices like the Essential phone and now the OnePlus 6. With more betas on the way and official updates in the works, here’s what you need to know.
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 a similar quick approach 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, the new OnePlus 6T will come with Pie out of the box.
The company released multiple Android P betas in August and September. As a result, we're expecting similar betas for older devices. We saw something similar last year, so it only makes sense. In fact, we believe the company will add its older devices to the beta program before the end of November, or earlier, then release official updates.
