OnePlus is already rolling out its first software update for the OnePlus 2, and it’s one you’re going to want to install right away if you’ve already received your handset.

This release, OxygenOS 2.0.1, promises to improve battery life and fix a number of minor issues, as well as patch the worrying Stagefright vulnerability that allowed hackers to attack millions of Android devices with just a text message.

Sadly, OnePlus doesn’t mention a fix for the fingerprint scanner issue I talk about in my review of the OnePlus 2, or any performance improvements for the camera app. They could be included in “other,” but they seem big enough to me to warrant a mention.

Here is the full change log for this release:

  • Added a patch for the Stagefright security exploit
  • Improves battery performance
  • Improves user interface logic and coherence
  • Fixed an issue with pinch-to-zoom in Google Photos
  • Fixed an issue where Dark Mode would cause instability in certain apps
  • Fixed an issue related to import/export of contacts stored on SIM card
  • Additional support for global carrier APNs
  • Other improvements and bug fixes

OnePlus is rolling out OxygenOS 2.0.1 in phases, starting with users in India. Given that the device hasn’t been available all that long, though, it shouldn’t take too long for it to reach all users.
