More About the Android 10 Update
Now taking things into perspective, the OnePlus 5 launched in early 2017. And for most of the smartphone manufacturers, updating a phone which is at least three years old is completely unheard. The update is slated for roll out sometime in Q2 2020. Although the 6 and 6T will be getting their update rolled out sometime in November 2019.
While comparing to the other smartphone manufacturers this is a pretty bold move by OnePlus. While for the OnePlus owners it has already exceeded their expectations. Looks like OnePlus is competing with Apple secretly. Just like when Apple rolled out the iOS 12 updates to the iPhone 5s.
Android 10 has been released with OxygenOS 10 and for the time being, is a bit buggy. Although a constant stream of updates is being pushed to OxygenOS 10 devices.
