OnePlus is rolling out QxygenOS version 3.5.5 to OnePlus 2
OnePlus is rolling out QxygenOS version 3.5.5 to OnePlus 2 which will offer VoLTE support for selected carriers. However, the company declines the anticipated Android 7.0 Nougat upgrade. OnePlus states that the OxygenOS 3.5.5 rollout is happening in a phased way and will only reach to a small proportion of users in the beginning, and eventually the company will come out with broader rollouts
Along with the OxygenOS, 3.5.5 users will be able to make VoLTE calls for selected carriers. However, OnePlus hasn’t listed the carrier’s names yet. OnePlus 2 came to India in September with the support of Reliance Jio networks.
Other than VoLTE support, the OxygeOS 3.5.5 update brings some slight updates and redesign to the interface. The update includes features such as Battery Saving Mode, App Lock, new Alert Slider Options, Volume Adjustment Bar, and Gaming Mode. The update also includes some bug fixes and shelf optimisations. Sadly, the Android 7.0 Nougat isn’t a part of OnePlus 2 smartphones update. The Android security patch level has been upgraded to 1st December with this build.
Before updating OnePlus 2 keep in mind that the update will change the Calculator, Clock and Messages applications to the stock OnePlus app if the user has never updated their analogous Google apps. Other than that, a lot of configurations will be restored post this update such as the device name, accent colours, ringtones, and the battery bar indicators.
Along with these features, OnePlus is also collecting feedbacks from the users after they update their OnePlus 2 smartphones to OxygenOS 3.5.5. If the users want to downgrade to OxygenOS 3.10, the company has given necessary links that will help them with it. As we discussed earlier, the rollout will be coming in a phased manner, so if you are a OnePlus 2 user and you haven’t received the update notification yet, you will soon receive the OTA update notifications.
