OnePlus has commenced its OxygenOS 3.0 operating system soak test for the OnePlus 2. This comes after the manufacturer rolled out a series of software bug fixes and patches to its newest flagship since the year began. The new firmware matches the OS upgrade from Lollipop to Marshmallow and features all the improvements included. Based on reports from users, OxygenOS 3.0 is based on the latest version of Android, the 6.0.1 Marshmallow update, which brings with it a host of new emojis. Also includes with the update is March's Android security patches from Google to keep the handset's security up to date. As you are already aware, Marshmallow's familiar features such as the newly introduced Doze battery manager, granular app permissions, Google Now on Tap, Do not Disturb Mode and plenty of other functions are to be expected. On top of the upgrade to Android's latest software version, OnePlus has added some of its own extra tweaks into the software update. It has included a new slider to manage notification alerts, home screen customization options, a fresh widget FAB and a number of new wallpapers to choose from as well. Seemingly, the update is yet to start being rolled out to all OnePlus 2 users. OnePlus is perhaps testing it out for bugs, before they can officially roll out the OxygenOS 3.0 update to OnePlus 2 owners far and wide. This should happen shortly, so look out for the OTA update notification.
