OnePlus has started rolling out the much-awaited Stable Android Pie for its four-year-old mobile phones OnePlus 3 and OnePlus 3T. OnePlus 3 series users have been shouting for this since a long while and it seems their wait is finally over now. OnePlus 3 has been launched by the company in June of 2016 followed by the OnePlus 3T in November same year.
The stable Android 9 Pie will be released with Oxygen OS 9.0.2 build which will also include the April 2019 security patches. The software update is the most crucial thing for any mobile phones.
