OnePlus CEO Pete Lau has announced the latest icing on the cake on what looks to be one of the best phones of the year: the OnePlus 6T will come with Android Pie right out of the box.
According to BGR, Lau confirmed the day-one availability in response to a post on Chinese social media site Weibo.
Samsung’s Galaxy S and Note flagships are still waiting on Samsung’s special version of Android 9.0, and given the current state of the developer builds, they’ll likely be waiting for a long time.
Meanwhile, OnePlus’ upcoming aluminum-and-glass phone will not have to go through any upgrade process to get the new OS.
The OnePlus 6T — with its 6.4-inch AMOLED screen, in-screen fingerprint scanner, and 3,700mAh battery — is rumored to have a slightly higher price than its predecessor’s $546: about $20 to $30 across the board.
