OnePlus has started hammering its hands over the Android 14-based upgrade. Meanwhile, several users are reaching out to us continually to know whether their devices will receive the next firmware version.

The OnePlus 8T smartphone is a primal flagship member of the 8th smartphone lineup. Consequently, the tech maker has crafted the OnePlus 8 series with the best possible hardware and software, especially the 8T model.

Originally, the respective smartphone appeared on the user platform with the Android 11 operating system. Thereafter, the tech maker pushed off subsequent upgrades with OxygenOS 11.1, OxygenOS 12, and OxygenOS 12.1, and currently, the phone runs OxygenOS 13.

In comparison to previous versions, the OxygenOS 13 gave a new life form to this old flagship with a bundle of incredible features and functions. However, the OxygenOS 14 is the next target that OnePlus 8T smartphone users are looking at.
Why this anticipation? This is so because OxygenOS 14 will surely appear as a major and feature-packed upgrade over 13 versions in every aspect. From camera improvements to ultimate optimizations in the user interface, the iteration is said to offer some of the best tweaks ever.
On the flip side, if we glance at the previous software update policy, then OnePlus 8T will receive three major Android OS and four years of security updates support. Since the phone came into existence with Android 11, it is technically eligible for the Android 14 upgrade as well.
Although the dilemma arises at two points:
- All the other 8 series models have completed the Android rollout cycle, and aren’t eligible.
- The OnePlus 7 and 6 series were also eligible for three major OS rollouts and attained the following versions. But the tech giant halts the OnePlus 7T and 6T models only at 2 Android updates.
The same criteria apply to the OnePlus Nord 2T and Nord CE 2 Lite handsets. Eventually, the truth stands on the manufacturer’s decision whether it will consider what OS the phone shipped with or what OS the series has started with.
OnePlus 8T is eligible?
OnePlus has currently not confirmed the eligibility to upgrade the 8T devices over OxygenOS 14. But there is still a high chance that this good old flagship will make it up to the list. Till then, we’ll keep you posted with new developments.
