OnePlus plans to deliver four major operating system updates and five years of security patches for some of its 2023 phones. The brand confirmed its new commitment at a roundtable event in London, but didn’t reveal which smartphones will benefit from the new update policy.

Speculations suggest that future OnePlus flagship phones will benefit from the new enhanced software support starting with the upcoming OnePlus 11. OnePlus and Oppo’s OS Product Head Gary Chen confirmed that security updates will be released every two months.
Current OnePlus devices from the number series back to the OnePlus 8 receive three operating system updates and four years of security patches. Older number series phones like the OnePlus 7 and newer Nord series devices get two OS updates and three years of security updates. The OnePlus N series has to make do with a single operating system update and three years of security patches. Samsung is the only other Android manufacturer that guarantees up to four major Android updates for its new flagships.
