December’s not generally a month where we expect a lot to happen in the smartphone space: we’re a couple months past the big fall launches, and CES and MWC are just over the horizon, but these last few weeks of the year too often feel dominated by deals rather than juicy smartphone news. Despite these low expectations, OnePlus has been doing an admirable job of keeping itself in the spotlight, with news on the retail front, the release of new software updates, and a healthy smattering of rumors talking about what’s next. Today we’re checking in with a new software update for the no-more-invites-required OnePlus 2, as the latest OxygenOS update lands.
Starting today, OnePlus begins distribution of OxygenOS 2.2.0 to the OnePlus 2. In it you’ll find a few new configuration settings, some bugfixes, and a bunch of performance tweaks.
Specifically, users can look forward to expanded format support for OTG accessories (perfect for reading a flash drive with your phone), dual-SIM settings fixes, a correction for some glitchy Google Camera behavior, and the latest security patches. There are also new settings for search bar behavior in the launcher, as well as screen temperature.
And just because it’s that time of year, OnePlus is throwing in some new holiday-themed wallpaper options.
Be on the lookout for OxygenOS 2.2.0 hitting your OnePlus 2 beginning today. Availability will be staggered, so if you don’t see it straight away, just keep your eyes peeled.
