During this week OnePlus caught the headlines with the release of OnePlus 7T. The new handset is the company’s upgrade over the OnePlus 7 released earlier this year alongside the 7 Pro. Interestingly enough, the OnePlus 7T has a better chipset (Snapdragon 855+) which is better than the standard SD855 inside the OnePlus 7 Pro.
There’s one undeniable fact about OnePlus devices, no matter if you like the brand or their pricing policies, they have one of the best software supports in the industry. Moreover, OnePlus handsets are easy to mod, due to the company’s good nature of offering an open-source experience. Now, in another good example of commitment in complying with GPL, OnePlus has disclosed the Kernel Sources of the 7T.
OxygenOS offers one of the best Android-based software experiences. However, it may not be everyone’s cup of tea. With the Kernel Sources, developers will be able to work on Custom ROMs for the OnePlus 7T. Moreover, it will allow them to work on Custom Recoveries and Mods for the latest flagship. If you’ve been in the Custom ROM community for a while, you’ll probably enjoy the idea of LineageOS in the handset. Also, developers usually are faster the most OEMs in publishing new Android versions. Last but not least, even if OnePlus decides to drop OnePlus 7T support in the future, 3rd-party developers can step in and keep the support.
