OnePlus 8 updates

I have a question for the mods. I just got the OP8 and see that it's the T-Mobile model with the same software version just with a Sprint sim. Does this mean the phone will be getting the same updates as the T-Mobile version?

 

Thanks.

Hi! The OnePlus 8 5G is now capable of accessing T-Mobile's network, with the latest software version and VoLTE enabled, but you must be located in an area with 5G coverage and have been selected as one of our customers that's going to be able to experience this in the first instance. Chosen customers, will be notified about the access and given instructions if necessary. We're working on enhancing the network experience for all customers!

Yes I'm aware of all that about the network and 5G. The phone has only been on T-Mobiles network since activation even though band 41 is strong in my area. My question is about the software updates. Since it's a T-Mobile phone with a Sprint sim does it get the T-Mobile updates or it's still a Sprint update?

The updates will initially come from Sprint since your account is with us and connected to our network. If there are any updates for T-Mobile's network or access, customers will be notified.

I understand they will come from Sprint while the phone is technically still Sprint. I'm talking more about the updates themselves. It seems the Sprint model and the T-Mobile model are exactly the same. Since they are the same will both models get the same exact software updates? For example, they both got the same first update, 10.5.8.

We can't say just yet, as of right now the updates are released by Sprint.

The 10.5.10 update was pushed to t-mobile OP8 and I received the same update. So i guess I now have my answer.

I have the OnePlus 8 on Sprint and am not able to get the August update. Manually checking says I have June update and am up to date.

Sprint pulled the 10.5.17 and 10.5.20 updates. On September 26th a new update will roll out as a fix for these issues.
