OnePlus has begun working on its devices and their OS and the first to get an update on OxygenOS 2.2.0 is One Plus X. One Plus X is close to getting the OTA and if you are lucky and have one of these, you too could be getting the update in the next 24 hours. The manufacturer has announced that the update has started to roll out today.
One Plus X was launched with Android Lollipop and the Android version remains the same, with some changes. The changelog includes the manual camera mode found on OnePlus 2 earlier last year, the option to save photos to a microSD card and dual SIM preferences added to system settings.
Manual mode for Camera App
Save to SD card option in Camera App
USSD bug fix for India
Added dual SIM preferences back in system settings
OTA App upgrade
General bug fixes and optimizations
Apart from the aforementioned changes, the rest of the update is comprised of bug fixes. Happy updating!
OnePlus 2 is getting another update! Its operating system, OxygenOS, has reached version 2.2 today and it brings about some well-deserved bug fixes and a number of security patches. Panorama and photo-sphere issues in the Google Camera are now fixed, plus you will be able to tweak your screen temperature from the quick settings section.
This way you will be able to adjust the colors of your display as you want. Here is a complete list of the changes for OnePlus 2:
added NTFS and exFAT support for OTG
fixed dual SIM preference selection issues in settings
fixed Google Camera photo-sphere and panorama bugs
added hide search bar option in launcher settings
screen temperature can be adjusted from the quick settings
general bug fixes and optimizations
The OxygenOS update will roll out in patches, which means it will take a few good days to reach all OnePlus 2 devices, but it should come to all devices soon enough. Let us know how your phone feels after the OTA.
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.
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 reveals new information regarding its Two device and it appears that we are in for an excruciating process yet again, just like it happened with the OnePlus One last year. The Chinese manufacturer will tease one piece of information after another in the hope of creating some hype for the device. AHD that’s not all, as the second One phone will also be released in stages, based on invites.
The most recent bit of information released today si also probably the most important one yet, as we now know that the OnePlus Two smartphone will be running on a Snapdragon 810 v2.1. According to the manufacturers, the second 810 processor version is supposed to run much better and thus avoid another SnapdragonGate. LG G Flex 2 and HTC One M9 are just the more famous devices to suffer from thermal throttling because of Snapdragon 810 processor. Even the Xperia Z4 with the v2.1 version has been having some reported issues in Japan.
OnePlus is planning to use graphite and thermal gel to diffuse the heat from the processor as the graphite is supposed to dissipate heat evenly. OxygenOS is supposedly fixed around the Snapdragon processor as well in order to make better use of the big and little cores alike.
The 2 will have an USB type C port, which means it will only work with some microUSB cables, but it will definitely work with all the future devices and cables out there.
The OnePlus 2 does not have an official launch date yet, but more details regarding spec will be revealed in the following weeks.
OnePlus 2 is one step closer to the shelves as we speak because the mother-company is rumored to have marked the device for launch in July. The One Plus One device was one of the most talks about smartphones last year, in part because of its terrible horrible no good invite system and also because of its spec price ratio. The device presented the spec build of a 2014 flagship at half the price.
This year’s OnePlus device is rumored to feature a Qualcomm Snapdragon 810( the much hated easily-heating processor that broke the Internet during spring) paired with 3 GB of RAM, a 1920 x 1080p display plus a 13 MP camera and a 3300 mAh battery to power it all.
OnePlus’s co-founder Carl Pei recently said that the company is taking into consideration customer feedback from the One to improve the Two device by preparing a smoother launch with more support for customers. Moreover, the company is further developing its team and future vision by working hard on the new smartphone.
It appears that the horror of the invite system is not over as the second OnePlus flagship will be achievable via the same process as before. The new handset will also have a higher price than One ($300).
The Chinese company recently started two new contests with an interesting prize: an all-expense paid trip to the headquarters in Hong Kong. One contest is taking in to consideration a no edits photo competition on Instagram where users can upload a photo with the tag @oneplustech detailing how they were able to accomplish their photo. Officials will choose 10 photos and users will vote on the final winner.
The second contest takes place in video format and it’s supposed to be a personal confession or vlog in which people can share their OnePlus story by saying what they like about the One, what they expect from the future device and basically why THEY are the biggest One Plus fans ever. The videos will be judged on quality, originality and production. One winner will be chosen by the judges and one by the community. You can make your entry viable with THIS FORM.
This makes both contests have a total of three winners which will get a full-paid trip to Hong Kong to the OnePLus HQ where they will experience the OnePlus Two firsthand and apparently participate in a secret project.
OxygenOS will not get its Android 5.1 update until the OnePlus 2 is released, but the new Cyanogen OS will be coming much sooner. After the rather violent and unexpected breakup between OnePlus and Cyanogen Inc., the former managed to release its own Oxygen OS ROM for those who already bought their devices, but their updates will be coming slow, new reports suggest.
The OnePlus 2 has not shown its face so far, but it has been officially mentioned a few times, which can only make its descent closer and closer with every passing day. This will be the first device to operate solely on OxygenOS. A new build of the ROM will come live soon and this should fix the touchscreen issue OnePlus One users have been having, but don’t expect a bump in the version number.
On the other hand, Cyanogen is moving along with the tests of Cyanogen OS 12.1 – Android 5.1 version – and it is waiting for Google certifications. The OS should be available for download “Soon”.
Note: do not confuse Cyanogen OS with CyanogenMod, the open source ROM we all love.
