As stated, the information was broken via OnePlus's official forums where Head of Product, Oliver Z and Community Manager, David Y sat together to answer questions from the community.

The OnePlus 3 was released in the summer of of 2016, while the OnePlus 3T arrived just before the turn of the year. The company kept the name with the newly released OnePlus 5 as well as the recent flagship has been receiving updates right from the day one. With the company releasing the OnePlus 5 recently, it has led many to wonder how software will be supported on the OnePlus 3 and OnePlus 3T going forward.

In addition, Oliver also said that OnePlus will also end the Open Beta Program for the 3/3T after Android O update is released. OnePlus has been pushing updates to users on the Open Beta Program around every 1-2 months since its release, and seeing as how the beta has been used to test new features before releasing them to public builds, it only makes sense that these will be ended as well.

OnePlus does specifically mention that security updates will continue for the "foreseeable future" (whatever that means), but still, buyers of this phone probably would have liked to have a solid two years of Android version updates.

After the OnePlus 2's very lukewarm response, there was much rejoicing when the OnePlus 3, and later the OnePlus 3T, turned out to be a return to form for OnePlus. A month or two after these patches go live, the company will release Oxygen OS 4.5 to both the smartphones. Some hardware-reliant features found on the OnePlus 5, like the Reading Mode and DCI-P3 color gamut output, won't get passed onto the OnePlus 3 and OnePlus 3T - the component gap is real, folks.
