OnePlus X users finally get hopes of a Marshmallow bump
If you visit any online forums or blogs that talks about the OnePlus X or where security and other kind of updates are mentioned on other OnePlus smartphones, you are bound to get users who would keep on asking when the OnePlus X would finally get an update on it.
Although the manufacturer promised their users that they would provide fast and timely updates, they largely disappointed when they left the X users on the Android Lollipop that they launched them out with and in an age where Google is looking to release its Android 7.0 Nougat soon, they still hadn’t tasted the Marshmallow yet.
Well, it seems that the constant pleas and complaints by users didn’t fall on deaf ears after all as the OEM announced today that they had a new software build available for the OnePlus X and this one being a ‘community’ build, it means that it is still in the testing stage before it is made official. What then does this community build bring?
For one, it brings the security patches to keep the device solid and secure up to the standard of August and it also includes with it two new applications – OnePlus Gallery and OnePlus Music Player.
That might not interest you to know as much as that the build, which carries a model number of Oxygen OS 3.1, is based on the Marshmallow, so you get to taste that elusive candy now. Being ‘beta’ for now, there is sure to be some issues that you would encounter but with enough patience, you would get the real thing soon.
