The recently launched OnePlus 3T was rumoured to come with Android Nougat, but sadly it came with one generation old Marshmallow OS, leaving many prospective buyers a tad disappointed.

So, when will OnePlus 3T get Google's new mobile OS?

It has come to light that the company has scheduled to release the Android Nougat to both OnePlus 3T and its predecessor OnePlus 3 at the same time. This apparently means the new device will get Google's v7.0 mobile software update in December 2016.

Currently, OnePlus is still testing the Nougat-based OxygenOS and few lucky registered OnePlus 3 owners have received the community build version. Once the company gets the feedback from them, they will conduct few more tests to iron out any glitches and then finally release the update to the public.
