Android 9 Pie is already available to OnePlus 6 owners, it was very much expected that the OnePlus 6T would ship with the same version in tow.
OnePlus previously spoke about the software on this upcoming smartphone on its forums, confirming a “new UI” and reworked navigation gestures.
Further, Lau gave an update on when to expect Android 9 Pie on some older OnePlus devices. While OnePlus is still planning to deliver Android 9 Pie on its OnePlus 5/5T and OnePlus 3/3T smartphones, the update has apparently been delayed.
It’s unclear exactly why OnePlus has delayed the update, but Lau said it is taking longer than expected. The original timeline for a Pie update to those older devices was by the end of this year.
Finally, Lau confirmed the OnePlus 6T will go on sale in China on November 5 — six days after its global launch on October 30.
