We recently reported that OnePlus disclosed not only that the Nougat update for OnePlus 3 is in the works, but Marshmallow for OnePlus X will come out soon too. Without keeping users waiting any further, OnePlus X gets Android Marshmallow finally, with the OxygenOS 3.1.2 update.

After months of waiting, OnePlus X users have finally received the Marshmallow update for their devices. Being a Snapdragon 801 SoC device, there will be no Nougat for the OnePlus X. If you are running OxygenOS 2.3.3, 3.1.0, or 3.1.1, expect a direct bump to OxygenOS 3.1.2 soon.

As always, this OTA will be incremental. The OTA will reach a small percentage of users today, and we’ll begin a broader rollout in a few days.

Known issues: Users who have installed the Facebook or Facebook Messenger App, you will need to manually give storage permission to both the apps or else it will crash while using the phone’s camera.

Apart from all the goodness of Android Marshmallow like battery optimizations with Doze Mode and App Permissions, OnePlus is bringing its own flavor too. As OnePlus X gets Android Marshmallow, it will also receive new icon packs for the launcher, Google search bar UI customization, new backgrounds, and new Alert Slider settings.
