The OnePlus 3 is currently one of the best phones that perfectly balances price and quality. Running Android Marshmallow out of the box, the company is now set to update it to Android 7.0 Nougat.
OnePlus says they will be starting with a beta build of the new Android version which will be available later this month. The final release is expected to hit devices by the end of the year.
This news will help prospective buyers who have been considering purchasing the OnePlus 3 make up their minds. And with Black Friday and Cyber Monday coming soon, they should also be able to get it for less than its current selling price.
OnePlus has also confirmed that their flagship from last year, the OnePlus 2 will also be getting the Nougat update but haven’t mentioned a specific time for the update. Next year sounds like the only possible time though. Sadly the, OnePlus X (which just got Marshmallow by the way) and the OnePlus One won’t be getting updated to Nougat due to hardware requirements.
