The OnePlus Two was released in August 2015 and it was shipped with Android 5.1 Lollipop, which is overlaid by Oxygen 2.2.1 UI. So, the OnePlus Two doesn’t run on vanilla Android and in order to be upgraded to the latest Android Marshmallow, the phone will go through a soak testing.
According to a user who sent Android Police some screenshots, OnePlus has began the soak test of the Android 6.0 update, which will be part of the OxygenOS 3.0, but in the images is not clear if the OnePlus Two device is actually running Marshmallow. But, we’ve seen some changes, such as new wallpapers, customizations to the homescreen and a slider for alerts. Oxygen 2.2.1 was released at the beginning of March and brought new features, but the users weren’t too excited about it, so they’re waiting for the next release.
OxygenOS 3.0 will be built on the latest Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow version, so it will include the new emoji characters, alongside the March Android security patches, the Doze battery saver, which will be improved, plus the Do Not Disturb mode, better app permissions etc. The users won’t receive the update over the air, but once the developers will make sure that OxygenOS 3.0 is bug free, they will release it to all the OnePlus 2 owners.

The phone has a similar design to the first OnePlus One model, featuring a Sandstone Black rear panel, but the device is now 1mm thicker and features a metallic frame that protects the sides. Also, the shape of its body is now rectangular instead of a floating arc, but the screen has the same size of 5.5-inch and Full HD resolution.
