After a couple of months in beta, OxygenOS 3.0.2 will be rolling out on the OnePlus 2. It’s the upgrade to Android Marshmallow 6.0.1 you’ve been waiting for.

OnePlus has confirmed the update through a blog post, stating OnePlus users should be receiving the over-the-air update, in the next 48 hours.

The update is of course incremental with the promise of 100% of OnePlus 2 devices, receiving Marshmallow. It’s a massive move of confidence for OnePlus to promise this, as Android updates are notorious for their punctuality.

Just a warning, the update will wipe your stored biometrics, so you’ll have to re-enrol your fingerprints again. A slight bother for faster fingerprint recognition don’t you think?

Android Marshmallow Features

Here is a highlight of what OnePlus 2 users can expect from the update:

  • Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow upgrade
  • Enhanced Doze mode for better battery life
  • System wide performance improvements
  • Improved fingerprint sensor performance and recognition
  • New OnePlus Camera UI and AF optimization
  • MaxxAudio and Tuner have been removed. We have integrated with Dirac HD Sound technology for the speaker so you get a great experience without the knobs and dials
  • Shelf UX has been improved. You can now long press to edit a board
  • You can now lock apps in recents so they won’t be cleared away. We’ve also added clear process in addition to clear-all for those of you who want a better control of background processes
  • Network operator selection will now stick to your choice so you don’t accidentally roam onto unintended networks
  • Swiftkey update to 6.3.3

Let us know if you got your update and what you think!
