This device has received two major OS update, and its highly unlikely it will get Android 12 update due to Oneplus 6 receiving three major OS upgrade, This device is bit different than OP6 but Oneplus has paired this device together, and rolled updates at the same time for both the versions.
Most probably this will be the last OTA this device gets, as it’s almost been 3 years or so since the device was launched although its sibling Oneplus 6T had only 2 received 2-OS upgrades to date, the OG 6 Series should be happy about this.
