OnePlus smartphone owners are eagerly waiting for Android 6.0 Marshmallow update but there is no specific release date at the moment. However, the Chinese smartphone maker is constantly rolling out incremental updates to its devices to enhance users' experience. In the latest rollout, OnePlus pushed out Oxygen OS 2.1.3-x to OnePlus X users to fix some issues experiencing while using Chrome browser.
We received the software update notification on our OnePlus X review unit on Friday. The firmware update is a hotfix patch for 2.1.3 addressing the YouTube playback issues and keyboard lag in Google Chrome. The update size is 20MB and requires users to grant permission to download and install while connected to Wi-Fi to avoid data overages or incur charges.
This may not be a major update but regular Google Chrome users can take advantage of it.
OnePlus smartphone users are relieved after the company confirmed that all three devices in the company's lineup will receive Android Marshmallow update. Firstly, OnePlus' former software partner said the Android M based CM13 will be rolled out in the first quarter of 2016. Since not all devices run CyanogenMod anymore, users are more concerned about the Oxygen OS based on Android M release date.
The flagship OnePlus 2 will be the first to get Android M based Oxygen OS by March 2016, while the company's OnePlus X will follow a later date, which is yet to be confirmed.
With the new software, devices will get native support for fingerprint sensor, faster Chrome browser, improved Now on Tap feature, new security feature verified boot system and more.
