We know, we know, it’s been long enough. Roughly a year since both the OnePlus X and Android 6.0 were released to the general public, similarly hard to come by off the bat. The affordable mid-range 5-inch phone and Lollipop’s sweet OS successor tried their best to go wide in the first half of 2016, but then OnePlus decided to focus on one “true flagship family”, and Google prioritized Nougat development.

The latest Android distribution chart has Marshmallow at a disappointing sub-20 percent share, while the OnePlus X is still listed on the OEM’s website as out of stock essentially around the world.

On the bright side, we were told the other day to expect over-the-air M deployment next week, so technically, OnePlus is early today in “starting the incremental roll-out of OxygenOS 3.1.2” for the X. Better late than never anyways, with public beta tests taking a little over a month to iron out all last-minute kinks.

In addition to standard Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow goodies, Now on Tap, Doze mode, App Standby and customizable permissions included, the newest stable OxygenOS build also lands on the OnePlus X with October security patches (already?), revamped icon packs, Google search bar UI customization, shelf UX improvements, general system performance enhancement, some bug fixes, the OnePlus Music Player, and OnePlus Gallery. Gradual, incremental OTA en route now.
