OnePlus Reveals Android 6.0 Marshmallow Upgrade Plans, Rolls Out OxygenOS 2.1.2

OnePlus on Monday revealed its Android 6.0 Marshmallow update schedule for its devices. The company also started rolling out OxygenOS 2.1.2 update to the OnePlus 2 and OnePlus X smartphones. In other news, OnePlus India has announced extended service plans for the OnePlus X smartphones sold in the country.

The company confirmed that the OnePlus One running Cyanogen OS will start receiving the Android 6.0 Marshmallow update in the first quarter. It added that the community builds of OxygenOS for the OnePlus One will be updated "when time allows".

The OnePlus 2 will also be updated in Q1 next year, and the company confirmed that the update will add the new standard Marshmallow API for the fingerprint sensor.

"We've heard requests for us creating an API for the current fingerprint implementation in OxygenOS, but have decided against this since we're switching over to the standard Android M implementation soon" said OnePlus co-founder Carl Pei in a blog post. Further adding, Pei said that the company is working hard to rollout Marshmallow update to the OnePlus X.

OnePlus 2 and OnePlus X users over the weekend started receiving the OxygenOS 2.1.2 OTA (over-the-air) update. The company however noted that the update rollout will be incremental and thus will take some time to reach all users.

The OxygenOS update for the OnePlus X brings UX bug fixes in the Camera app; improvement to colour offset in HDR mode; bug fixes to System Update to improve OTA stability; system optimisations in low battery state, and general bug fixes & performance improvements.
