After rolling out a number of software patches and fixes to its latest flagship already this year, OnePlus has begun soak testing its OxygenOS 3.0 operating system for the OnePlus 2. The new OS number coincides with an upgrade from Lollipop to Marshmallow, and all the improvements that includes.

OnePlus 2 OxygenOS 3According to user reports, OxygenOS 3.0 is built on the latest Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow version, which comes complete with the new emojis. The March Android security patches have also been included, which will help keep the handset secure. As you’re probably aware by now, Marshmallow features the new Doze battery management, customizable app permissions, Do Not Disturb mode, and plenty more options that you can read about here.

As well as the upgrade to the latest version of Android, OnePlus has added a few of its own tweaks into the software. There is now a slider to control notification alerts, a new widget FAB and customization options for the home screen, and a selection of new wallpapers to choose from too.

The update doesn’t appear to be rolling out far and wide just yet. OnePlus is probably testing for any bugs before rolling out OxygenOS 3.0 to all of its OnePlus 2 owners, but we are edging close to a full release now. Keep an eye out for that OTA notification.

    Well it was about time.

      At least they met their deadline this time (Q1 16).

      • pIXo

        they will if they release stable version.

    what about the One and the X?

    • Jehan Kateli

      OnePlus One runs Cyanogen OS, and Cyanogen originally said COS13 would roll out it January. They haven’t said anything since (afaik).

      As for the OPX, OnePlus said the update will come “later”.

  • That One Guy

    One plus is dead. I had the first one and nfc did not work, the OS was buggy! Cyanogenmod is crazy to think they will ever beat Android, they can not even make a clean performing OS where all functions work! Lmbo!

    • Gabriel Baribeau

      Oxygen OS is only buggy on the oneplus 2. I know it because i had a 2 that i exchanged against a G4 and i have the oneplus x which performs like a champ compared to the oneplus 2.

  • Stefan Lehnert

    OnePlus did a great job with Oxygen OS. It runs very smooth and reliable on my OnePlus X, without Bloatware. I just hope, they can keep the good quality for the Marshmallow-Version. I will keep up-to-date what the OnePlus-2-users will say about the update – and then wait for the update for the X ;-)

    • Gabriel Baribeau

      i really hope we will get oxygen os 3.0 for the oneplus x too! it already runs smooth and i can’t imagine how marshmallow would perform on this phone! If we get it it’ll be around Q2-Q3 (my guess).

  • Denny Smith

    oxygen OS is really nice, it’s nearly 100% stock with a few small features revolving around Oneplus, my only gripe was their sluggish updates

  • Grayson B

    Has anyone actually confirmed this? No user has come out saying they have this.

  • fn noobee

    Soak testing? Sounds like a BS term to calm their customers down for delayed release. Coming from OPO, this is just one of the reasons I pulled the trigger on the ZTE Axon Pro over the Oneplus Two. I am already “soaking” in Marshmallow goodness as soon as I connected initially to WiFi during the phone set up.

  • Ady

    Really disappointed with my OP2, too many performance issues. Rebooting the phone is already a routine when it hangs. This flagship killer is being killed by oxygen OS. I hope the update will bring it back to life.

  • Prathamesh Shanbhag

    I think they have given us the hint in the latest weekly update….They said that something is coming on coming Monday…..and also they said tht every oneplus 2 user will love it….so i think its the marshmallow update

  • moshe R

    It’s going to be disappointing as the old os.full of bugs. Bluetooth problems. Slow working dialer.apps getting stuck. Occasionally restarting on its own. Bad battery life and so on and so on.. Waste of my got dam money!
