OnePlus 2 gets major camera update

OnePlus has issued an update for its OnePlus 2 flagship phone that promises to dramatically boost its camera performance.

We were already quite impressed with the OnePlus 2’s camera when we reviewed it back in August, but OnePlus has seen fit to improve it further with a new software update.

OxygenOS 2.1.0 is rolling out to OnePlus 2 owners now, according to a recent forum post. OnePlus calls it “a sizeable update full of bug fixes and improvements.”

Chief among those improvements is an all-new manual mode for the OnePlus 2 camera app. It’s an understandable addition, given the praise the Samsung Galaxy S6 and LG G4 have received for their own manual camera modes.

Another pro camera feature that’s been added in OxygenOS 2.1.0 is RAW support for third party camera apps, though there have been reports that this feature still isn’t working. OnePlus is looking into it.

Other non-camera related additions include a new colour balance slider for adjusting the tone of the OnePlus 2’s screen. If you’re used to the warmer hues of Samsung or the colder hues of Apple, you should now be able to adjust the OnePlus 2 screen to match.

Add in Exchange support and a whole bunch of bug fixes, and you have a pretty substantial update.
