The OnePlus 2, being almost three years old at this point, is obviously coming to the end of its operational life. This means that its smartphone will get software updates for two years after launch, and security patches for three years, which is exactly what Google promises for its own devices. OnePlus took to its forums to reveal official details on the new OnePlus Software Maintenance Schedule.

Like other Android phone company, OnePlus too are supposed to offer a minimum of 18 months of firmware support. The software updates start from the day the phone is released, coming with new software features, Android updates, and security patches on a bimonthly basis.

In case you were wondering how this will look for the OnePlus 3 and 3T, OnePlus says that they'll continue providing regular OTA updates until November of this year (2018), followed by an additional year of Android security patches.
