OnePlus 2 update to OxygenOS 3.0.2, based on Android 6.0.1, about to rollout
OnePlus has announced today that it is about to begin the staggered rollout of OxygenOS 3.0.2 for the OnePlus 2. Since it is being disseminated OTA, the update might take a few days before you receive it. The 3.0.2 version of OxygenOS is based on Android 6.0.1, and will erase your currently saved fingerprint information. This means that once the new update is installed on your OnePlus 2, you will have to re-enter your prints.

OnePlus hopes to have OxygenOS 3.0.2 available to be installed on all OnePlus 2 units as soon as 48 hours from the start of the rollout. Some of the new features include an enhanced version of Doze. This will lengthen battery life on the phone by putting your apps to sleep if the phone is unused for a spell. That means that these apps won't be running in the background, consuming your battery power.

OnePlus says that the update adds system-wide performance improvements, better recognition of fingerprints using the scanner, a new UI for the camera and auto-focus feature, and a built-in update to third party QWERTY provider Swiftkey (to version 6.3.3). Other changes include the removal of MaxxAudio and Tuner, and the addition of Dirac HD Sound to improve the speaker. Apps can be locked in Recents so that they cannot be swiped away, and clear-all removes all of the current apps in Recents with one tap. The Network Operator selection will not change, thus preventing a situation where you accidentally start roaming on a network that you have no business using. This could save you from having to pay accidental roaming charges.

Just a couple of tips. When the notification arrives, before you start installing the new software, make sure that you are connected to a Wi-Fi network. You should also make sure that your battery is at least 50% charged before installing the update.

Funny how they take such a long time to released a update for a stock based ROM.

My son is convinced he is going to get cancer from it. Luckily, I have his brand new S7E sitting at my house, so he will have it next weekend and the OPT will be on Swappa.

Why would he be concerned. What's the issue? I'd that an excuse for a new phone? All phones give off radiation

I use a BT head piece for all of my phone use...have since the days of the flip phone. But, I think the SAR data on the Oppo line (oneplus) phones is higher than normal?

i take it that what he meant is that OS is really bad. I had an OPT, and I couldn't keep it for a week; The Oxygen OS is really immature and crap, it stutters even when you open the dailer!! the performance dips are really intolerable for a SD810! so, i had to revert back to my HTC M7. after my experience with the OPT, I was convienced more than ever that hardware is only one small part of the game, the rest is software and device ergonomics.

Does the OnePlus One get the update or did OnePlus stop support of it?
