OnePlus 2 gets updated to OxygenOS 2.0.1 (Stagefright patch and other fixes included)
Starting today, OnePlus is rolling out an over the air update (the first) to its newest smartphone, the OnePlus 2. More exactly, the update is for the international variant of the OnePlus 2 (which runs OxygenOS, not HydrogenOS, like the Chinese model), and brings OxygenOS to version 2.0.1.
Like plenty of other software updates lately, the one offered by OnePlus addresses the Stagefright security exploit. However, that's not all that OnePlus 2 users are getting with this update. Also included are improved battery performance, improved "user interface logic and coherence", and various other fixes and enhancements. The OxygenOS 2.0.1 update is being rolled out in phases, so not everyone will get it today.
Available since August 11, the OnePlus 2 can be bought for as low as $329 (if you have an invite, that is). Like last year's OnePlus One, the OnePlus 2 sports a 5.5-inch 1080p display. However, the handset brings plenty of new features, including an octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 processor, fingerprint scanner, an upgraded 13 MP rear camera, 4 GB of RAM, and a 3300 mAh battery.
Earlier this month, OnePlus also offered a Stagefright-related update for OnePlus One owners.
