OnePlus has released the first official Android Marshmallow build for the OnePlus X. The software content will update the device from Android 5.1.1 Lollipop to Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow.
OnePlus X owners who are booting either OxygenOS 2.2.3, 3.1.0 or 3.1.1 don’t have to flack back to an older version to install the OxygenOS 3.1.2 update. The OTA can be accessed by going to “Settings,” “About Device” then “System Updates.”
According to the official OnePlus forum page, the OxygenOS 3.1.2 update brings new launcher upgrades, icon packs and wallpaper designs. There are new customization options for the Google search bar UI.
Like any other software update, this one features graphic enhancements and general bug fixes. It also installs two new default apps. These are the OnePlus Gallery and OnePlus Music Player.
For added security, OnePlus furnished the update with the October Android security patch. A new settings pane offers a revamped Alert Slider and native Android app permissions.
OnePlus X owners should bear in mind that the OxygenOS 3.1.2 update just started rolling out on Wednesday. The Chinese smartphone manufacturer announced that the OTA will be released in phases worldwide.
“For those who have flashed Community Builds of OnePlus X, we appreciate your feedback,” said a spokesperson for OnePlus. “With your help, we have been able to better optimize and improve several key areas. Thank you for your patience and as always, we look forward to hearing your continued feedback.”
Phone Arena noted that the OxygenOS 3.1.2 update contains a minor flaw. While using the smartphone’s camera on Facebook and Messenger, OnePlus X owners need to manually give storage permission to prevent the apps from crashing.
The OnePlus X released back in October 2015. The mid-range device served as a bridge between OnePlus’ flagship offerings. The OnePlus 2 hit the market on July 2015. The OnePlus 3 followed suit 11 months after.
