It seems that they guys from OnePlus have been quite busy lately, as they’ve released an update to its OnePlus 2 smartphone. The new OxygenOS 3.5.5 is finally offering VoLTE support for select carriers.
According to OnePlus, the OxygenOS 3.5.5 is being released in a phased manner and it will reach only a small proportion of users for now, but more and more users will receive it in the following days.
Once you update the OnePlus 2 to OxygenOS 3.5.5 you will be able to make VoLTE (Voice Over LTE) calls, but keep in mind that only a few carriers will support this for now. Unfortunately, OnePlus has not mentioned the carrier names where VoLTE will function on the OnePlus 2 handset.
Besides the VoLTE support, the update will also bring some minor updates and redesign to the interface. Some of the new features include: Battery Saving Mode, Gaming Mode, App Lock, Volume Adjustment Bar, Alert Slider options and more.
As expected, the new update comes with some bug fixes and other optimizations that have been addressed. Unfortunately, the new OxygenOS 3.5.5 update doesn’t bring the Android 7.0 Nougat on the OnePlus 2 devices. However, this new build comes with the Android security patch level that has been released this month (December 2016).
If you own an OnePlus 2 device and you want to update to the OxygenOS 3.5.5 then we have to remind you that this update will replace your Messages, Calculator and Clock App with the stock OnePlus apps. However, you will be able to download and install Google’s stock applications later on.
You should know that OnePlus is currently gathering feedback from OnePlus 2 users after they update to the OxygenOS 3.5.5, which means that some changes might come to the operating system sometime in the near future.
