OnePlus promises Android P for two-year-old 3 and 3T against all expectations

Last month, OnePlus formalized its software maintenance schedule. Like Google, the company promised customers two years of Android OS version upgrades, followed by an additional year of security maintenance updates. This new schedule applied to hardware starting immediately, which most of us had assumed meant that the last version of Android the OnePlus 3 and 3T would see was Android O via either 8.0 or 8.1. Well, earlier today OnePlus promised owners of the 3 and 3T the unexpected: Both phones will be getting Android P, but at a cost.

[Update: Downloads available] Oxygen OS 5.0.3 for OnePlus 3/3T brings Face Unlock, several launcher changes, and more

With the 5T, OnePlus introduced its own version of face unlock, aptly named 'Face Unlock." Thanks to its sheer speed, it quickly became a hit. Owners of older OnePlus devices begged for it to be added to their phones, and days later, it showed up on the OnePlus 5 with the latest Oxygen OS beta. The feature then made its way to the OnePlus 3 and 3T via the beta track, and then to the OnePlus 5's stable track. With Oxygen OS 5.0.3, the OnePlus 3/3T gets Face Unlock on the stable track, as well as some other tweaks.

OnePlus posts new Open Beta builds after removing them during domain change

OnePlus is good enough to provide beta versions of OxygenOS for most of its phones, but those downloads vanished yesterday.
