OnePlus enters 2020 more successful than ever—but it can't rest on its laurels

OnePlus enters 2020 more successful than ever—but it can't rest on its laurels

As 2019 ends and we enter a new decade, I felt the story of OnePlus deserved a bit more examination. In an email interview with CMO Kyle Kiang, I probed the history of a company that is often as shocking in its successes as it is in its marketing misfires. As it crests its sixth year as a smartphone vendor, it's more competitive than ever, coming a long way from the days when it could barely manage to build enough $349 OnePlus Ones using a tightly controlled and very annoying invitation system.

OnePlus has also transformed in ways I don't believe any of us predicted, going from a scrappy, value-first smartphone maker to a legitimate competitor in a field that includes some of the world's most recognizable brands: Samsung, Apple, and Google.

OnePlus 6 and 6T Android 10 update rolling out again as Oxygen OS 10.0.1 (Update: 10.3.0 ROMs)

Reports have been trickling in for the last couple of hours that the stable Android 10 update for the OnePlus 6T has been rolling out — apparently without any fanfare or an associated announcement at the OnePlus forums, as is customary. In addition to bringing all the Android 10 features you can expect, the OxygenOS 10 update for the 6T also includes the company's Game Space feature and the "Contextual display" ambient display feature.

OnePlus 6 and 6T receive another Android 10 Open Beta after tricky stable rollout

OnePlus 6 and 6T receive another Android 10 Open Beta after tricky stable rollout

OnePlus usually provides its handsets with timely Android updates, though with the OnePlus 6 and 6T, it slipped up quite a bit. The devices got a stable Android 10 version in November, but the software turned out to be buggy, so OnePlus had to stop the rollout and started slowly pushing out a hotfix  — effectively leaving a majority of users on a four-month-old security patch level. It looks like the company is continuing to fix bugs and might be readying another stable point release soon as it has just launched Android 10 Open Beta 3 for the phones.

Security updates on the OnePlus 6 and 6T are an utter mess right now

Security updates on the OnePlus 6 and 6T are an utter mess right now

OnePlus often prides itself on the solid software support it extends to its relatively small smartphone lineup, and rightly so. Handsets as old as the OnePlus 5 (the one with a 16:9 display, remember?) are confirmed to get Android 10, while this year’s 7 series was updated months ago. Even the OnePlus 7T came out running Android 10 in the same month Pixels got their stable builds. Two phones that couldn’t be a part of this flattering tale are last year’s OnePlus 6 and 6T that have been stuck on Android Pie while OnePlus is struggling to put their Android 10 packages together.

OnePlus shares Android 10 rollout schedule for OnePlus 6T, 6, 5T, and 5

The official rollout of Android 10 has already started for the OnePlus 7 and 7 Pro, but older OnePlus devices are still without the latest software. That won't be the case for too much longer, though, at least for some phones. OnePlus has shared a tentative schedule of when the OnePlus 6T, 6, 5T, and 5 will see the update, and it's as soon as this month.
