OnePlus 2 finally receiving Marshmallow update

OnePlus 2

Owners of the OnePlus 2 won’t have to wait for the update to Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow any longer since the company has finally started rolling out the upgrade to all its users. They’ll be getting the promotion as part of OxygenOS 3.0.2 which is now being sent out OTA.

In a forum post, OnePlus promises to broadcast OxygenOS 3.0.2 to all OnePlus 2 consumers within 48 hours, so most won’t have to wait too long before they’re blessed with the update. While the brand is calling it an incremental upgrade, it does bring along a number of changes on top of the big Android 6.0.1 boost.

First-off, OnePlus has improved the handset’s fingerprint sensor performance and recognition so users can spend less time trying to unlock their phone. The company has also implemented a new Camera UI and optimized AF. Furthermore, network operator selection will stick to the consumer’s choice to prevent the device from roaming to unintended networks.

The move to Marshmallow spells bad news for MaxxAudio and Tuner since the two are getting eliminated in the process. However, OnePlus has incorporated Dirac HD Sound technology for the speaker system. It promises that the change will supply a great experience without the knobs and dials.

Moreover, OxygenOS 3.0.2 allows OnePlus 2 owners to lock apps in recents so the tools won’t get cleared away. The manufacturer has also added a brand new clear process in addition to clear-all for those users who want greater control over background processes.
