Will the OnePlus 8T Get Android 14-based OxygenOS 14 Update?



Android 14 officially debuted for testing and development, and several OnePlus devices would get it through the OxygenOS 14 update. But the question here is whether the cutest OnePlus 8T will get the upcoming Android 14-based OxygenOS 14 update or not.

Well, OnePlus has already stopped support for major software updates and monthly security updates for the OnePlus 7 and 7T series. And it looks like the OnePlus 8 series is the next to lose major software support.

Last year, OnePlus expanded its update policy for OxygenOS to guarantee four major Android upgrades with five years of security patches for selected flagship models in 2023. Through it, the Chinese tech giant aims to bring users longer-lasting and more stable intelligent experiences by continuing to build on OxygenOS.  

Let us tell you that the OnePlus 8T smartphone originally appeared on the user platform with the Android 11 operating system and is eligible to receive 3 Android software updates and four years of monthly security patches, similar to the OnePlus 8 and 8 Pro

Furthermore, the tech maker upgraded the OnePlus 8T with OxygenOS 11.1, OxygenOS 12, and later OxygenOS 12.1, and currently, the phone runs OxygenOS 13. The latest version of the OxygenOS 13 brings all the new features that Google introduced in the latest Android 13 operating system. On the flip side, this major update brings a new design philosophy and Aquamorphic design, which provides an easier and faster way to manage your device.

Sometime in 2021, the company revised its update policy from promising 2 years of major software updates for devices to 3 years of major software updates and 4 years of monthly security updates.

According to the software update policy, OnePlus 8T will get three major Android OS and four years of security update support. The smartphone launched with OxygenOS-based Android 11 skin means the OnePlus 8T will get the Android 14 update.
