The first OnePlus 2 update for OxygenOS has arrived

The OnePlus 2 has been out for a little while now, but promises of an early software update were left unfulfilled, until now anyway.

Fortunately, OnePlus has started rolling out the very first over-the-air update for OxygenOS.

OxygenOS is a custom-built Android ROM built by OnePlus, after its relationship with ROM-creator CyanogenMod floundered.

“Today, we’re excited to announce the first OxygenOS over-the-air update,” says OnePlus.

It continues: “OxygenOS 2.0.1 includes various bug fixes as well as a security patch for the Stagefright security exploit.”

Here’s the changelog for the OxygenOS 2.0.1 update:

  • Added a patch for the Stagefright security exploit
  • Improves battery performance
  • Improves user interface logic and coherence
  • Fixed an issue with pinc-to-zoom in Google Photos
  • Fixed an issue where Dark Mode would cause instability in certain apps
  • Fixed an issue related to import/export of contacts stored on SIM card
  • Additional support for global carrier APNs
  • Other improvements and bug fixes

The update is rolling out incrementally, and will arrive for users in India first.

The company says it “may take some time” before the update reaches all OnePlus 2 devices globally.

The OnePlus 2 is the Chinese start-up’s second ever smartphone, following on from the success of last year’s OnePlus One.

Touting flagship specs like a Snapdragon 810, a Full HD screen, and 4GB of RAM, the handset is an apparent steal at just £239.
