Everyone has heard by now about the new operating system from Google – Android 7.0 Nougat – is now rolling out gradually to certain Nexus devices. Well, while some are already in the process of receiving the latest OS, other haven’t even gotten Android Marshmallow yet – the operating system that preceded Nougat.
But it’s always good news when devices upgrade to a newer and better operating system and more recently, OnePlus has announced that it will finally be distributing the Android Marshmallow update to the OnePlus X.
It will come in the form of Oxygen 3.1.2 and it is said to be incremental which means that users who upgrade to it should expect other builds later.
Here is how to upgrade your OnePlus X device to Android Marshmallow:
- Go to Settings >> System >> About device
- Opt to download the update manually
- Tap the Ok option and then the Tap option
- Choose OK once the restart message pops up
Another way to do this is to go to Settings >> About phone>> System update and see if there are any available updates or if your device is already updated.
According to OnePlus, the update will also come with improved performance and bug fixes. It will also come with new icon packs, a new wallpaper picker style and a Google search bar UI customization. Lastly, it will introduce two new apps: the OnePlus Gallery and the OnePlus Music Player.
In other news, the tech giant is also working on an Android Nougat platform for its newest smartphone, the OnePlus 3. The information was revealed by OnePlus representative during an AMA session in Reddit.
Even though A. Nougat came out a month ago, it will still take a while for manufacturers and carriers to adapt the OS to the specifications of their devices.
