OnePlus 2

After releasing a host of small software improvements for OnePlus 2 over the past couple of weeks, OnePlus is preparing to give its latest smartphone its first major update. In a forum post published today, the company outlines the OxygenOS 2.1.0 over-the-air update.

Continuing a trend from past OTAs, this update adds several camera improvements. The most notable one is that there’s now a manual mode. Moreover, third party apps can now take advantage of the OnePlus 2 RAW capture capabilities.

The full list of changes can be seen below:

  • We’ve added manual mode for all you photography enthusiasts. Hope this will give you more control for capturing that perfect moment.
  • RAW support is now enabled for 3rd party camera apps that support this format
  • There’s a new color balance slider in Display for adjusting the color tone of your screen. You can now go warmer or cooler as you please.
  • Added Exchange support.
  • We fixed some issues that were causing problems with popular 3rd party apps.
  • Telephony service improvements so you no longer get the lag when you turn on/off airplane mode.

To start, OnePlus is rolling out the update to a small number of devices. If there’s not a repeat of what happened when the company attempted to update the OnePlus One to Cyanogen OS 12.1, then a full scale rollout will begin tomorrow.
