OnePlus has started rolling out an Over-the-Air (OTA) update for the OnePlus 2 which fixes some VoLTE support issues. This new update does not bring any noticeable changes to the smartphone except for the bug fixes. If you haven’t received the update yet, don’t panic as you will be receiving it shortly. The VoLTE issue came with the OxygenOS 3.5.8 update. OnePlus had recently announced that they have discontinued the support for OnePlus X and OnePlus 2, but this might just be the last update the OnePlus 2 ever receives. However, OnePlus has confirmed that the smartphone will not get the Android Nougat update which they had earlier promised.
OnePlus in a recent AMA (Ask Me Anything) session on Reddit, where many people had asked about this smartphone made it clear that the OnePlus 2 won’t be receiving the nougat update and that they have discontinued support for it. However, I feel it is still a great phone and many users have already started installing custom ROMs in order to get the latest Android Nougat experience on the smartphone.
The OnePlus 2 is powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 SoC coupled with Adreno 430 GPU. The phone comes in two variants, one with 3GB RAM, 64GB internal storage and the other with 4GB of RAM and 64GB onboard storage. It features a 5.5-inch display with a resolution of 1080 x 1920 pixels and a pixel density of 401ppi. As for the camera department, the phone offers a 13-megapixel primary camera with the support of 4K video recording, a dual-led flash and laser auto-focus. Upfront the phone has a 5-megapixel camera. The phone currently runs on Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow.
