March 7: OnePlus 2 back in December last year received the OxygenOS 2.2.0 update with several fixes. It now has started receiving OxygenOS 2.2.1 that brings new features in the camera department among other fixes and improvements. The new OS version started rolling out last week.
The OxygenOS 2.2.1 update for OnePlus 2 brings RAW file support for the native camera app. RAW image files give users more control during editing. The update additionally fixes the occasional image corruption issue in the OnePlus 2 camera. It is worth mentioning that the OnePlus X also recently got an update that fixes several camera issues. However, it was not an OS update.
The new OS version also features improvements in Bluetooth compatibility, roaming issues, and Ultra-SIM compatibility. Also included in the OxygenOS 2.2.1 incremental update are GMS 3.0 upgrade, security patch update, and Romanian language support, added the company’s forum post.
Since the rollout of the new OS version is gradual, it will take few days to reach all the OnePlus 2 smartphones. Users can manually check for the new update availability by going to Settings > About Phone > System Updates on their OnePlus 2.
The previous version – OxygenOS 2.2.0 for OnePlus 2 – brought fixes for dual SIM preference selection issues in settings; added NTFS and exFAT support for OTG; fixed Google Camera photo-sphere and panorama bugs, and also brought screen temperature adjust options directly from quick settings.
It is worth mentioning that OnePlus Co-Founder Carl Pei last month revealed that OnePlus 2 successor, likely called the OnePlus 3, will be launching in the second quarter of this year. He said that OnePlus 3 will be arriving in the US and other markets as an unlocked smartphone and will be sold directly by OnePlus. The Chinese tech firm may also come up with a “better buying process”, details of which were not disclosed.
