OnePlus 7 Pro 5G Android Q update
- Eligible for Android Q update
- Stable release expected in Q4 2019
The unlocked OnePlus 7 Pro is already part of the ongoing Android Q beta program and given the device is basically the same as the 5G variant, we expect an update to Android Q stable to arrive somewhere in Q4 2019.
The standard Pro should get Q in Q3 2019, but due to the usual carrier-related delays, the OnePlus 7 Pro 5G’s update to Q will also delay by several weeks.
How long will OnePlus support OnePlus 7 Pro 5G
OnePlus is known to support their devices well. And they are also pretty good at rolling out the updates in a very timely manner. No wonder then that they are months ahead of even Samsung in releasing major Android OS updates.
OnePlus has always supported their devices for two years, but with the OnePlus 3 and 3T, they extended the support for another year by releasing the Android Pie for the devices. Although the rollout was in a limited manner via community beta build, you can be sure that OnePlus won’t back off when it comes to updates.
They have even promised Android Q for OnePlus 5 and 5T, which means these two handsets will be supported for 3 years as well.
You can be sure that OnePlus 7 Pro 5G will be supported for 2 years at the minimum, which means it will definitely get Android Q and Android R updates. But there also exists a great chance that OnePlus would roll out even the Android S update for the device.
Security updates should be regular, no doubt about that. And you can even expect new features and bug fixes if any in a timely fashion.
