OnePlus owners, if you have an insatiable smartphone sweet tooth and are simply unsatisfied with your current candy, then there is good news! OnePlus have announced that they will be updating all three of their devices to Android 6.0 Marshmallow, although no specific dates were promised.
OnePlus announced in an official post on their forum that they would be rolling out Android Marshmallow updates to the OnePlus One in the first quarter of 2016. Or more specifically, Cyanogen OS will be updating the One as OnePlus would not be rolling out OxygenOS Marshmallow updates for their first phone because it “isn’t what the product officially ships with”.
However, they did mention that they would update the community build of OxygenOS for the One “when time allows”.
The OnePlus 2 will also receive its Marshmallow update in Q1 of 2016 and will include the new standard Marshmallow API for the fingerprint sensor. OnePlus have decided against creating their own API despite feedback from its users as they were planning to switch over to the standard Android M implementation soon.
No estimated time frame was given on when the Marshmallow updates would reach the OnePlus X though, but the Chinese smartphone manufacturer said that they would provide an update on a time frame at a later date. OnePlus also said that they would continue rolling out OxygenOS updates in the meantime.
The OnePlus One is currently running on CyanogenMod 12.1 while the OnePlus 2 and X just received OxygenOS 2.1.2 via an OTA update
