OnePlus Inc. is reported to be having a slight delay in rolling out the new Android Nougat updates. Given the fact that most smartphones run the Android OS, the Google Android updates are much-anticipated by nearly all phone users. With several phone manufacturers  started featuring the tweaked version of Android OS, such as the Oxygen OS, OnePlus' lack of indication of a likely roll out of new updates seems to be a little disappointing for the fans.

The current Android OS update in the market is 7.0 Android Nougat found in some recent releases and latest Google phones. In previous reports, OnePlus was quick in launching the Android Nougat beta testing version in August this year. Following this, a number of benchmark websites have reportedly begun sharing details of beta testing on the manufacturer's devices. One of these is from Geekbench that showed the performance rating of the smartphones after installing Android Nougat 7.0 and 7.1.

Moreover, OnePlus 3 performed best with Android Nougat 7.1 with 1747 score in Single-core and 4007 in Multi-core. The updates may likely roll out in December,  Tech Crunch reported.

Meanwhile, the Chinese smartphone manufacturer is expected to reveal the company's next model on Nov. 15. Based on leaks, the rumored device is called 3T, which may be an upgraded version of OnePlus 3, as announced in June.

OnePlus co-founder Carl Pei also confirmed via Twitter that 3T will still have the company's Optic AMOLED displays.
