Geekbench listings of the OnePlus 3 and OnePlus 3T running on Android 9 Pie have been spotted recently.
Since these are the only OnePlus phones that are yet to receive Android 9 Pie update, the new Geekbench listings suggests that the latest version of Android could be available for these phones within the first quarter of this year.
The listings show the OnePlus 3 and OnePlus 3T phones running with Android 9 Pie on Geekbench. Probably, the Chinese manufacturer could be checking the performance of these phones with Pie update.
Android Marshmallow to Android Pie
In August, OnePlus had confirmed through an official forum thread that the OnePlus 3 and OnePlus 3T are eligible to receive Android 9 Pie update. Both phones were launched in 2016 with Android Marshmallow OS and were treated with Android 8.0 Oreo OS update last year.
Theses phones haven’t received the Android 8.1 Oreo incremental update. Probably, the Chinese manufacturer may skip the Android 8.1 Oreo update and release Android 9 Pie update instead.
OnePlus had also confirmed that the OnePlus 3 and OnePlus 3T phones will be provided with Android 9 Pie update after the OnePlus 5 and 5T phones are provided with the Pie upgrade.
Since the Chinese manufacturer rolled out the Android 9 update in the last week for OnePlus 5 and 5T, it appears that the release of the latest Android software for OnePlus 3 and 3T handsets is around the corner.
OnePlus has already released Android 9 Pie update for newer handsets like OnePlus 6T and OnePlus 6. The Android 9 Pie update has brought along OxygenOS 9.0.1 UI update on OnePlus 6, 6T, 5 and 5T phones.
Hence, the goodies of OxygenOS 9.0.1 may also arrive with Android 9 Pie update for OnePlus 3 and 3T handsets anytime in the first few months of this year.
