The OxygenOS that powers the OnePlus 2 is getting a new update that offers a handful of pretty convenient improvements. At the top of our list is RAW support for the device’s camera, but there’s something here for everyone.

The upgrade to OxygenOS 2.2.1 isn’t a very showy evolution. It’s mostly a few little tweaks and upgrades that making using your handset a bit more enjoyable. For example, the devs have improved Bluetooth compatibility to cut down on those frustrating connection problems. Ultra SIM also got some compatibility improvements, and the GMS 3.0 upgrade is pretty nice. Some issue with roaming have been fixed, and that bug that used to result in the occasional corrupted image when snapping pictures has finally been patched. Security also got tightened a bit and, hey, Romanian language support has been added. And, of course, you can now take RAW-quality pics with the camera.

Depending on your priorities, the camera boost or the security patch might be your favorites of this update. The tightened security incorporates the February security patch from Google, so you won’t have to worry about your OnePlus 2 falling behind security-wise. Although rollout has started today, you might not see it hit your device for a day or two. Patience, grasshopper.

    Why does the media care about this fail phone with removed features, lack of an LTE band, etc.

    • Ian R

      Do you own, or even used the oneplus2. It’s brilliant phone and it can compete with the best phones out there. Who cares about nfc not being on the phone and it has all the LTE bands I need to maybe you need to get some facts before you just spam a article

    • Me

      Nice of you to show everyone how ignorant you are.

      • moew

        Thanks, anytime my friend!

    • Gabriel Baribeau

      The oneplus x lacks lte bands NOT the oneplus 2.

    • balcobomber25

      This comment is a bigger fail seeing as you have know clue what you are talking about.

  • RiTCHiE

    Nice, i wish Sony would learn from companies like this because they are markt leader when it comes to chips but suck at the software design so maybe i should get a OP2 for the cheap,

      OnePlus 2, X and more are now on sale only on AndroidSmartphoneDeals:com

    • Emil Vasilescu

      Sony should learn from OnePlus….. LMFAO

  • Shashank Gupta

    Please don’t update the new version as one of my friend did and he is having problems as phone is restarting again and again. Word of Caution that do it only if you are sure you need that update.
