Android 6.0 Marshmallow Update Schedule For OnePlus One, OnePlus 2 and OnePlus X Revealed
OnePlus is slated to release the Android 6.0 Marshmallow update to its handsets. The schedule of roll out for the OnePlus One, OnePlus 2 and OnePlus X was recently revealed The roadmap was based on the official site of the company.
According to BetaNews, a handful of vendors have revealed their upgrade plans on Android 6.0 Marshmallow. OnePlus is the latest to join the list, as it has announced when OnePlus 2 and OnePlus One users should expect to see the new mobile operating system on their devices.
International Business Times reported that Carl Pei, the co-founder of OnePlus, posted that the Cyanogen OS will be releasing its Android M update for OnePlus One owners in the first quarter of 2016. The Chinese company has basically developed an OxygenOS flavored with Android M community build for OnePlus One handsets. But since the OnePlus One handsets are not officially released with Oxygen OS, its community build for the handset will later on be followed.
Meanwhile, the owners of OnePlus 2 will be also able to upgrade their devices to Android 6.0 Marshmallow in Q1 2016. Upon updating, the new standard Android M API for fingerprint scanning will support the fingerprint sensor of the OnePlus 2 handset. However, OnePlus will not be making API for the fingerprint scanning in OxygenOS.
As far as the Android 6.0 Marshmallow update for newly released OnePlus X is concerned, Pei said that the company is working hard to roll out the software at the earliest. But then, the exact schedule will be confirmed later on.
Furthermore, Phone Arena reported that what will be upgraded to Android 6.0 Marshmallow on the OnePlus One is Cyanogen OS, not OxygenOS. This is because the latter isn't what the product officially ships with despite the fact being OnePlus' home grown OS.
With the Android 6.0 Marshmallow becoming available on OnePlus handsets such as OnePlus One, OnePlus 2 and OnePlus X, users of these devices are already excited of the things that the newest OS will bring.
