OnePlus 7T update delayed due to Corona virus outbreak, January patch to be released in following two weeks

Coronavirus has not only put a pause to the human life in China but also has impacted at large, the entire smartphone community especially the Chinese smartphone manufacturers.

OnePlus, which is one of the Chinese OEMs is finding it difficult to push out new security updates for its smartphones. OnePlus 7 Pro (which is stuck in November 2019 patch on stable update) hasn’t been updated for nearly a month and a half.

However, a OnePlus staff member via the official forums cleared the air that the reason behind it is the extended Chinese New Year holidays alongside the other much so obvious one – the coronavirus attack, which could very well be the reason for update delays for OnePlus 7T as well.

Moreover, OnePlus 7T has also received any updates since the November 2019 security patchset back in December 2019. However, there is some news regarding the delays in pushing out update for the OnePlus 7T.

According to a OnePlus staff member, the NCP outbreak was the reason behind the delays in the update. But, the staff member also stated that if everything goes well, the January 2020 security update will be pushed in the coming two weeks or so.

We encountered some delays due to the NCP outbreak. The January security update for 7T will be released in the following two weeks if all goes well.
