When Google has already made the Android Marshmallow based firmware available for the Nexus devices, the other smartphone manufacturers are working hard to make android marshmallow available for the devices they’ve manufactured.
OnePlus which is one of the most-hyped brands has finally announced its plans for bringing Android 6.0 Marshmallow update to OnePlus phones i.e. OnePlus One and the OnePlus Two. This news was officially posted on the OnePlus Forum by Carl Pei, Co-Founder at OnePlus.
According to the post on the forum, The OnePlus One and the OnePlus Two will be getting the Android 6.0 Marshmallow in the first quarter of 2016. The post also says that the company is working hard to get the Android Marshmallow Update for the OnePlus X smartphone, though, it has not announced the specific date, when any of these phones will get the update.
Since the OnePlus One doesn’t have the fingerprint sensor, the company will be releasing the update for the OnePlus One first and then the OnePlus Two which will be followed by the OnePlus X. The community is also ready with the Android Marshmallow firmware for the OnePlus One, but it is not the final build and a lot of the changes might incur if required.[one_half]The native availability of the Fingerprint API in Android 6.0 Marshmallow has made a lot of tasks easier for the manufacturers. OnePlus Two, the most hyped-smartphone which came with Android Lollipop pre-installed didn’t had a Oxygen OS based implementation for the Fingerprint scanner. The company is up with plans to switch from the custom implementation to the Standard Fingerprint API available in Android 6.0 marshmallow.[/one_half][one_half_last]
