OnePlus announced the OnePlus 10T alongside OxygenOS 13, which was held live in Gotham Hall, NYC (some of our users attended the event too). This phone should not be seen as the successor of the 10 Pro, as there hasn't been a OnePlus 10 either. However, we've compared both specs to give you a general idea. For a more detailed overview of specifications, watch the announcement video below and check out its specs page or the community announcement post.

We'll update this article should things change, or if there are any exclusive offers you may be able to avail. Until then, go through these "deep dives" on OnePlus Community if this phone interests you: Charging, Performance, Design, Camera. They're all written by Kinder L. (head of R&D at OnePlus) who also wrote similar deep dives for the 10 Pro.

You may have already read the official OnePlus Community post about OxygenOS software release schedule, but here's a refresher:
Flagships including & after 8-series are supposed to receive 3 major Android versions and 4 years of security updates. The Nord / Nord CE line should receive 2 major and 3y security. The Nord N line receive only 1 major and 3y security updates. These are relative to the device's launch OS, and don't compound (i.e. the max support period for each device is whatever the number of security-years are).
With that out of the way, here are the devices that will receive OOS13 in time:
- 8, 8 Pro, 8T
- 9, 9 Pro (Closed Beta testing is underway)
- 9R, 9RT
- 10 Pro (it already has it as a Developer Preview, with a Closed Beta too)
- Nord CE, Nord CE 2, Nord CE 2 Lite
- Nord 2, Nord 2T
Other OOS13-ineligible devices are as follows. They'll continue to receive security patch updates:
- 7- & 7T-series (it recently received OxygenOS 12.1 Open Beta; stable should come soon)
- Original Nord (already has OOS12 stable)
- Nord N10 & N100 (OOS11 is their last major version)
- Nord N200 (already has OOS12 stable)
- Nord CE
Of course, all devices are supported by the app, and as long as your device isn't EOL, the app will continue to help you update ASAP. Security updates are especially important to install almost immediately, so you can have peace of mind at least.
If you weren't aware, all devices before 7-series were marked EOL (End-of-Life): 6/6T since December 2021 (126.96.36.199), 5/5T since November 2020 (10.0.1), 3/3T since November 2019 (9.0.6). So of course these devices won't receive any updates at all. You should consider moving to a custom ROM; LineageOS is a great place to start.
If you don't want to mess with it, at least make sure you're on the latest stable version: compare the versions in brackets and see if they match. If they don't, select the "Stable (full)" update method in the app's settings. If you still don't see anything, you're probably on a very old beta version, in which case you'll have to enable advanced mode as well. Take a backup of your data, since moving from those old versions back to stable requires a full wipe.
