OnePlus has started rolling out Oxygen OS 2.2.1 update for the OnePlus 2. The new update adds RAW image support to OnePlus Camera app and brings some improvements to enhance user experience.
The first and the most significant change that OxygenOS 2.2.1 brings to the OnePlus 2 is RAW support. This means that you can now capture and save RAW images directly through the stock Camera app on your OnePlus device.
Why RAW support is a big thing for you
RAW support is quite useful if you’re a photo geek and want your memories in “digital negatives” instead of positives in JPEG format. You can use the captured RAW images for further edits. But, of course, these image files would take a lot of space on your 16GB or 64GB OnePlus 2.
Apart from RAW support, the new OxygenOS update fixes occasional image corruption issue in your Camera app. It also improves Bluetooth and Ultra-SIM compatibility as well as comes bundled with GMS 3.0 upgrade and Romanian language support. Besides, the new software version improves some roaming issues and brings the latest security patch update from Google.
How to download
OnePlus’ project manager Allen mentions in a forum post that the new update “will be incremental” one. It will be available as an over-the-air (OTA) release in the coming days.
You’ll receive a push notification following its arrival on your OnePlus 2. However, you can manually check its availability by going to ‘Software update’ option from ‘About phone’ settings.
While the new update is good enough for the ones who want RAW support on their OnePlus 2, it’s not the biggest one. The Shenzhen-based company is yet to release the anticipated Android 6.0 Marshmallow-based OxygenOS update for its flagship. This would be released sometime later this year.
