It’s still not time for Android Marshmallow to be infused into the OnePlus X handset, but owners can make do with an Oxygen OS update which is aimed at improving the device’s user experience for the SD card. The version of the phone’s Android Lollipop software will stay put 5.1.1 after this upgrade of course.
The OnePlus X happens to be the Chinese company’s first ever handset to offer a microSD card slot. Oxygen OS 2.1.3 which is being rolled out right now brings several UX improvements to this feature. exFAT SD card support is also brought onboard, aside from the much revered ability to move apps to and from the SD card.
There was a bug which used to cause the X handset to reboot when a microSD card was removed in an active state. This update fixes that fault, while it even brings with it the regular Android security patches and general bug fixes and optimizations.
This phone was launched by OnePlus late this October, equipped with a metal and glass design. It runs on the tried and tested quad core Snapdragon 801 processor, which is the main factor that helps the company keep its price down to Rs 16999 or $249.
