OnePlus X addresses camera bug in latest system update
Right now, if you go and ask a bunch of OnePlus users what they’re looking forward to most eagerly, you’re likely to get one answer that pops up a lot more frequently – and is voiced a lot more enthusiastically – than the others: they want Marshmallow. And while OnePlus is still working on that, it has managed to deliver a number of other updates in recent months – and for OnePlus X users, those updates have largely focused on their phones’ camera. Just about a month ago we saw the OnePlus X score OxygenOS 2.2.0, delivering among other things a new manual camera mode. OnePlus has camera operation on the mind again today, as it begins distribution of a hotfix designed to resolve an image corruption issue.
We’re not sure of the exact nature of this corruption problem (and it hasn’t occurred on our own OnePlus X handset), but if you’ve been seeing messed-up images coming off your OnePlus X’s camera, today’s update should set you straight.
The tiny 9.5MB update may not be available to all users immediately, but OnePlus X says that everyone should have a chance to install it within the next two days or so. So if you’ve been seeing this corruption issue, take heart that it will be resolved swiftly. And if you haven’t – well – then this update can take its sweet time getting to you, can’t it?
As for that Marshmallow update, we still don’t have even an estimated timeframe. OnePlus has said to expect Marshmallow for both the OnePlus One and OnePlus 2 in Q1, but all it’s offered in terms of the OnePlus X is that it will “will update [us] on a time frame at a later time.” That was three months ago, and we still haven’t heard a peep. In light of that, enjoy today’s hotfix, but don’t hold your breath for something more substantial.
