OnePlus 2 gets OxygenOS 3.5.8

Although its younger siblings received Android Nougat already, OnePlus 2 gets another Marshmallow-based software update. The new firmware comes with the latest Android security patch, also fixing various issues.

OnePlus 2 owners will be disappointed by this last update issued for their handsets, but it looks like OnePlus has decided to keep them in Marshmallow land for a little longer. However, the new update, labeled OxygenOS 3.5.8, comes with the latest security patch from Google, next to quite a few tweaks and fixes.

According to the official post on the OnePlus Forums about the update, these are its highlights:

  • Google security patch dated March 1
  • fix for the echo issue during video calls in Duo App
  • better audio compatibility
  • fix for the data roaming problems that occurred in certain countries
  • fix for the persistent network drop issues
  • general bug fixes

The update is incremental as usual, rolling out in stages. A few OnePlus 2 owners should have it already, while a broader rollout is expected to begin in a few days. 

In addition to the above, there is not much else to say, so we can only wait for the first public beta of the Nougat update for OnePlus 2 - if OnePlus does not decide to release the firmware without running an open test first, of course.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
