The OnePlus 3 and OnePlus 3T have enjoyed an intense round of updates during the last months, among which was the one that carried the Android Nougat version. In fact, both models currently enjoy Android 7.1.1. However, despite the fact that in the forums of the brand it was said that the OnePlus 2 would receive Nougat, to this day there is no trace of the new software.
We have pointed it out many times. The OnePlus 3 and OnePlus 3T have enjoyed a system of upgrades that have provided their customers with a quick support service. There were many OTA updates to introduce new versions of Android and, at the same time, polish the operation of smartphones. But that system of updates has only been offered to the last standard bearers, leaving the rest of models in the background of the catalog of the Chinese manufacturer.
Now that differentiating effect begins to take its toll and to end the patience of those who decided to buy a OnePlus 2, so much that onePlus official forums has started a protest initiative to put pressure on the brand. Last year in June last we saw references in the same forum that the OnePlus 2 would receive Android Nougat in the form of update, that update has not yet arrived, just four months of release the OnePlus 3 and OnePlus 3T began their update process with Nougat.
Similarly, all users who own the OnePlus X and annoyed with the situation, have also mobilized along with the first for the manufacturer to take action on the issue.
A tricky subject and we do not know if it will actually force the manufacturer to release an update for both models. The updates are halted for the OnePlus 2 and OnePlus X because as per Google’s software policy, after more than 18 months since its launch the signatures fail to provide official support, at least in the face of updates that involve a change of version of Android. One of the major drawbacks of Google’s software platform, which we call the fragmentation of Android and the same by which today the implementation of Android Nougat is so reduced.
