OnePlus X, OnePlus 2, & OnePlus 3/3T get AOSP Android Pie ports

OnePlus, OnePlus India

There was a void left behind when Google shifted away from the Nexus program to focus on the Pixel brand. Many would agree that OnePlus has been able to fill that void with their high-end hardware, premium design, and respectable update speed while keeping the price from getting too inflated. With Google releasing the source code to Android 9 Pie recently, many of the community developers here have begun their work on ports of the new Android Pie update for a handful of OnePlus smartphones including the OnePlus X, OnePlus 2, OnePlus 3, and OnePlus 3T. The OnePlus X and OnePlus 2 did not receive the Android Nougat update, so this will be a major version bump for those devices. On the other hand, the OnePlus 3 and OnePlus 3T are promised an official Android Pie update, so these ROMs will be a nice way to experience the latest release before the official update.

OnePlus X Android 9 Pie Port

The device that was left behind, the OnePlus X, has received a port to the latest version of Android thanks to the work of XDA Senior Member YumeMichi. The developer has labeled this as a testing build at this time as there are a couple of known issues at the time of writing this article. Here is a list of what works and doesn’t work on this Android Pie release for the OnePlus X.

Other OnePlus Devices

The OnePlus 5, OnePlus 5T, and OnePlus 6 will officially get the Android Pie update. The OnePlus 6 is on the Android Pie beta program and just recently received a new beta Pie update in China, so we shouldn’t be too far off from a new OxygenOS update based on Pie. As for the OnePlus 5 and OnePlus 5T, we don’t know when the release will be made available, but thanks to the devices receiving Project Treble support and having active developer communities, custom Android 9-based ROMs shouldn’t be too far off from release.
