Owners of the OnePlus 3 have some good news coming their way in the next few weeks. A new report confirms that OnePlus plans to release a “community” beta for the smartphone to support Android 7.0 Nougat sometime later this month, followed by an over-the-air Nougat update for all OnePlus 3 phones by the end of 2016.

The report comes from Engadget, who spoke to Brian Yoon, the head of software at OnePlus. He also confirmed that Nougat would be coming to some of its older smartphones like the OnePlus 2 at some point, but there’s no specific date for when that will happen. This news comes just a couple of months after the company decided to combine its HydrogenOS and OxygenOS development teams, in an effort to speed up the release of updates for its phones.

This news also comes just a few days before OnePlus reveals its next smartphone, which is rumored to have Nougat installed out of the box. The official reveal will be made on Tuesday, Nov. 15. In the meantime, are you excited that Nougat is going to be making its way to another smartphone in the near future?
