Oneplus has not confirmed it yet, we might see a few more security patches next year, So as to claim they have supported the Oneplus 6 up to 4 years. The original Oneplus 6 was launched in May 2018, So this coming year May 2022 will account for 4 years this is just our theory we might be wrong here.

This device has received three major OS update, and its highly unlikely it will get Android 12 update, Only few security updates and it will end of updates for this device.
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.
