OxygenOS 2.1 update reaches OnePlus 2 – what are the changes?

OxygenOS 2.1 is now live and the first to get it is OnePLus 2. This Android ROM created specifically for the One Plus phones was light on features and possibilities at launch, but things are slowly changing as updates come along on the mobile front. Today’s update brings changes to the camera, display and some obvious bug fixes.

 

OxygenOS 2.1 OnePlus 2

 

You can check the official changelog here:

  • We’ve added manual mode for all you photography enthusiasts. Hope this will give you more control for capturing that perfect moment.
  • Raw support is now enabled for 3rd party camera apps that support this format
  • There’s a new color balance slider in Display for adjusting the color tone of your screen. You can now go warmer or cooler as you please.
  • Added Exchange support.
  • We fixed some issues that were causing problems with popular 3rd party apps.
  • Telephony service improvements so you no longer get the lag when you turn on/off airplane mode.

 

One of the most important changes is the manual mode on the camera, which is a huge upgrade from the standard. OnePLus 2 has a much better camera performance than the OnePlus One and OxygenOS 2.1 manages to offer it more options.

Now, users will be able to get into photography and they should get RAW support in third-party camera apps too (some reports suggest issues with this, officials are working on it). The update also brings in some color balance sliders on your pics.
The OTA started today and it will reach all OnePLus 2 devices by tomorrow.

OnePlus 2 will not reach North America in the next 2-3 weeks

OnePlus 2 will not make its appearance in North America as soon as you thought. Even if things didn’t go that well for the Chinese manufacturer at its launch, the device is still seeing a great wave of newcomers on the invite waiting list. But the waiting is only going to get longer, at least for some regions of the world. OnePlus announced that the North American shipments of its newest device will be delayed for 2 to 3 weeks.

People who already have an invite will be able to get their OnePLus 2 smartphone starting tomorrow (August 11th), but you will have to give it a day or two for the package to physically reach your home. If you are from North America, your money is good too, but you won’t get the product as soon as the rest of the world. It will simply not ship to Canada and the US until production is back on track.

 

What is OnePlus 2 all about?

 

If you are considering getting an invite for one of these “flagship breaker” smartphones – as the Chinese are branding it – , you should know what it’s made of, right?

 

The device has a 5.5” Corning Gorilla Glass 4 screen at 1080 x 1920 pixels, which brings it to 401 pixel density. You get Android 5.1 with an Oxygen UI, the proprietary software OnePlus has been using since earlier this year, after the fallout with Cyanogen. There’s also a 13MP main camera with a  5MP secondary sensor in the front.

 

Everything is powered by an octa-core Snapdragon 810 (MSM8994) SoC paired with 3 or 4 GB of RAM and 16 or 64 GB of space. There is no MicroSD card support for the device. Everything is powered by a 3000 mAh battery. Another interesting aspect of the OnePlus 2 is the microUSB v2.0 Type-C reversible connector. The smartphone accepts dual-nano SIMs.
