OnePlus X now getting Oxygen OS 2.2.1 update, still no Marshmallow though

OnePlus X

As OnePlus X owners wait with bated breath for their Android 6.0 Marshmallow builds, they can download yet another Lollipop update now. Oxygen OS 2.2.1 has just been released for it by its Chinese maker, equipped with a number of bug fixes and a security patch.

It can be noted that Oxygen OS 2.2.1 was also recently released for the OnePlus 2. However, while the said device received RAW photography support via the update, the OnePlus X isn’t getting the same since it does not have the hardware required to support the feature.

What it does get is a fix for a bug that causes the app drawer to crash when the Google search bar is hidden. Another bug that’s getting squashed is the microphone automatically getting muted during Google Hangouts. OnePlus has also added to this update a fix for the data leak bug experienced while roaming in some regions.

A neat look at the key specs of the OnePlus X:

– Display: 5-inch AMOLED, 1080p full HD resolution
– OS: Android Lollipop-based Oxygen OS (upgradable)
– CPU: 2.3GHz quad core Snapdragon 801
– GPU: Adreno 330
– Memory: 3GB RAM, 16GB storage (expandable up to 128GB)
– Cameras: 13MP rear, 8MP front
– Battery: 2525mAh
– Weight: 138gms
– Dimensions: 140 x 69 x 6.9mm

This Oxygen OS release for the handset kicks in the GMS 3.0 upgrade, a security patch and of course, general bug fixes and optimizations. The OnePlus X now seems to be ready for its Android 6.0 Marshmallow-based Oxygen OS 3.0 release. While there’s no firm timeframe for that, we’re assuming that the software will arrive in the coming weeks.
