OnePlus X is one of the two smartphones OnePlus has introduced this year. The company has released the OnePlus 2 smartphone first, as their flagship for 2016, and the OnePlus X came later in 2016 as their more affordable offering. The OnePlus X doesn’t look or feel like a mid-ranger though, it’s made out of metal and glass, and it looks really premium. That being said, the OnePlus X ships with Android 5.1.1 Lollipop with Oxygen OS on top of it, and the company has just announced that the new update is here, and that the rollout is starting today, read on.
This is not the first update this smartphone has received from the company, and it’s definitely not a big jump in functionality, but it does bring some new features worth mentioning, mainly Camera-centric. The Oxygen OS 2.2.0 update will bring manual mode to your Camera applications, while it will also let you save to an SD card directly once you take the shot. These two features are basically the main additions as far as features go, but are not the only improvements listed in the changelog. This update also brings USSD bug fix for India, while it also adds dual SIM preferences in system settings. The OTA upgrade app will appear on your phone as well, and the update brings several security patches and general bugfixes and optimizations, of course. The update rollout will start today to OnePlus X devices, so you should get it soon enough. You can always manually check if the update is available through settings, in case you didn’t know.
The OnePlus X features a 5-inch 1080p (1920 x 1080) AMOLED display, 3GB of RAM and 16GB of internal storage (expandable up to 128GB via a microSD card). This handset is fueled by the Snapdragon 801 quad-core processor, along with an Adreno 330 GPU. The 13-megapixel shooter (PDAF) is placed on the back of the OnePlus X, and an 8-megapixel snapper can be found up front. The 2,525mAh battery is also a part of this package, and it is not removable. The OnePlus X measures 140 x 69 x 6.9mm, while it weighs 138 grams.
