After some OnePlus 2 users complained about the fingerprint scanner malfunction, the Chinese tech giant got to the root cause of the problem and dispatched a fix.
Last night, OnePlus announced on its official Facebook page that OxygenOS 2.0.2 OTA update is available to all OnePlus 2 users. The company also updated its official forum with details of what the new software brings to the table.
The first OxygenOS 2.0.1 was rolled out to OnePlus 2 users only a week ago, and a new update is out to fix known issues. This way, OnePlus is keeping its current flagship from harm's way. According to the official change-log, OxygenOS 2.0.2 addresses the frustrating issue with the fingerprint scanner on some handsets.
By updating your OnePlus 2 with the latest OxygenOS 2.0.2 build, the fingerprint recognition will work more accurately. Other changes in the new software release include stability improvements to the front camera, new and improved UX for the camera preview and a fix to the bug randomly muting the phone's volume.
What's more interesting is the fact that OnePlus confirmed the major OxygenOS 2.1 update release in mid-September. The upcoming software is expected to bring significant improvements and new features as the jump from version 2.0.2 to 2.1 looks momentous.
As for updating the OnePlus 2 smartphone to the latest OxygenOS 2.0.2, make sure your handset is connected to Wi-Fi and the battery is charged at least 50%. Updating the software using your mobile data may incur charges or exhaust your data limit. If you haven't received the notification to update your handset to the new software, be patient as it is being rolled out in phases and will arrive in the next few days.e
