Update 1 ― No Android 12 update
Google’s Android 12 OS has arrived for the Pixel phone users. As for the OnePlus users, the latest flagship series, the OnePlus 9 got the chance to test the feature of the latest Android OS. But what about the OnePlus 6 and 6T users?
OnePlus launched the OnePlus 6 series back in the year 2018 as a flagship killer. It includes the OnePlus 6 and 6T launched in the same year but at different times. Disappointingly, these OnePlus phones are getting older and their software support is also coming to end.
Just after the launch, these smartphones were one of the best sellers of OnePlus as they were presented at very less prices as compared to the features they offered. But now, the company is not showing any interest in these devices and left them behind on their own.
OnePlus 6 and OnePlus 6T are not eligible for the Android 12 update. The company officially confirmed that the devices launched prior to the OnePlus 8 series will only receive 2 major Android OS updates. The company also confirmed these devices will get up to 3 years of security patches.
It also means that the OnePlus 7 and OnePlus 7T series won’t be eligible for the Android 13 update. However, they will get software support for up to 3 years.
