OnePlus is one of those firms that has known how to handle the play clue and to create hype above any other marketing strategy. With only two terminals per year, the firm goes through its best sales moments , and that is that every time they launch a mobile, this beats records within the company itself.
As usual,, doubts arise about whether or not there will be a T version . Carl Pei has spoken about this, and the truth is that has responded, but not .
The users have asked in theabout if there will be a T version, worried about the direction that OnePlus has taken with the updates since they were born. A “normal” OnePlus, born with an Android version, and updates the next two, all normal. However, T versions usually come out with a delayed version , so even if they receive two versions of Android, they should update to one more, I’ll explain.
The OnePlus 5T, for example, had to leave with Android Oreo, upgrade to Android P, and end its cycle in Android 10. However, it was outdated with Nougat, has upgraded to Oreo, and its cycle will end with Android P, this year 2018 , being a terminal launched in 2017. To the concerns about these decisions, and to the question of whether there will be a T version, Carl Pei has answered the following :
We do not have any plans to change our strategy at this moment. We also understand that software updates are extremely important to our community, and are always looking for ways to improve this. Hope you’ve seen some positive change with the OnePlus 6 being one of the world’s first phones with the Android P Developer Preview.
On the one hand, OnePlus implies that there will be a T version, like every year , and that they do not plan to change their strategy for updates. However, taking into account that the OnePlus 6 already runs the Android Developer Preview 2, it would not make sense that the OnePlus 6T went on the market with Oreo, so we will have to wait to see if OnePlus improves in this aspect, or continue to save a annual update
