OnePlus 3 and 3T get Android 9 Pie update

Following beta ^( builds ^( going out since April, OnePlus has today released the stable update to Android 9 Pie for the OnePlus 3 ^( and 3T ^( It comes as OxygenOS 9.0.2 for both devices.

As you might expect, this means you’ll get the new Pie UI, but there are more goodies baked in, like customizing the time range in the new Do Not Disturb mode, support for Google Duo video calls in the Dialer app, support for Google Lens in the Camera app, as well as the usual general bug fixes and improvements.

The new software comes with the April 2019 security patch level, and adds Gaming mode 3.0, with support for displaying text content of the heads-up notifications, as well as notifications for third party calls.

As always this will be a staged rollout, with the over-the-air update reaching a limited number of users today. A broader distribution should follow in a few days to a couple of weeks, unless there are any critical bugs found after the initial slow propagation phase.

The update to Pie for these handsets may be very late, but the mere fact that they are both receiving their third big OS version update deserves to be celebrated nevertheless. The OnePlus 3 and 3T launched running Marshmallow, and have subsequently been updated to Nougat and then Oreo.
