The OnePlus 11, Ace 2, and Ace 2V smartphones will receive 4 main Android updates and 5 years of security patches, according to Li Jie, the company’s president for the Chinese market. This indicates that the OnePlus 11 will be compatible with Android 17 in the future.
That makes OnePlus the company with the oldest support for its flagship models, along with Samsung and Google. But bear in mind that OnePlus’ head of the Chinese division provided the information. Therefore, we still have to hear something formal from the OnePlus representatives around the world.
According to Li Jie, maintaining its phones for more than four years after launch would cost the business CNY 100 million, or roughly $15 million. We’ll have to wait and see if this applies to the worldwide versions of OnePlus’ phones.
