Update to OnePlus X starts rolling out; no, it's not Marshmallow
Back in November, OnePlus said that the OnePlus X would be updated to Android 6.0 along with the OnePlus One and OnePlus 2. Today, an update has started rolling out to the OnePlus X, but it is not Android 6.0. Instead, the phone is receiving Oxygen 2.2.2 which includes new features, bug fixes and some enhancements. The manufacturer says that it is still working on the Marshmallow update for the "X."

When your OnePlus X receives the update to Oxygen 2.2.2, you will see a notification on your handset. At that point, before you start the process of downloading and installing the new files, you need to make sure that you are connected to a Wi-Fi network and are using a battery that has been fully charged. Because Oxygen 2.2.2 is being disseminated OTA on a staggered basis, it might not hit your phone for a few days yet. If you're impatient, you can try to coax the update out of your phone manually by going to Settings > About phone > System update > Check for update.

The changelist for Oxygen 2.2.2 includes:

  • Upgraded camera to version 1.4 UI
  • Improved camera frame rate performance
  • Added trusted face unlock security option
  • Updated Swiftkey to version 6.3.3
  • Updated carrier name mapping
  • Added July security patches
  • Fixed default SIM card selection issue
  • Fixed network operator selection issue
  • Fixed screen rotation issue
  • General improvements and bug fixes

The update weighs in the neighborhood of 325MB.
