OxygenOS 2.2.2 update rolling out to OnePlus X with July security patch

Well well, it seems the OnePlus X hasn’t been forgotten by the Chinese company after all. The last update that was rolled out to the OnePlus X was the OxygenOS 2.2.1 update in April which carried some bug fixes and April security patch. Now after almost four months, OnePlus is rolling out OxygenOS 2.2.2 update for the OnePlus X with July security patch.


OxygenOS 2.2.2 update fixes some bugs, brings some new features and carries July security update. The camera UI has been changed with this new update. You can now swipe up or down to switch between photo and video capture. OnePlus has updated Swiftkey to version 6.3.3 as well. Talking from security point of view, OnePlus has added the trusted face unlock option.


While the change log says June security patch, we actually got July 1 security patch. Obviously this is good, but it might lead to confusion among some users. If you remember, Google rolled out two security patches in July as well as August. Instead of providing July 5, 2016 security patch level, OnePlus has provided July 1, 2016 patch. Well, it’s better to have something than nothing at all. Isn’t it?

Here’s what’s new in the update:

  • Upgraded camera to version 1.4 UI
  • Improved camera frame rate performance
  • Added trusted face unlock security option
  • Updated Swiftkey to version 6.3.3
  • Updated carrier name mapping
  • Added July 1 security patch
  • Fixed default SIM card selection issue
  • Fixed network operator selection issue
  • Fixed screen rotation issue
  • General improvements and bug fixes

Those waiting for Marshmallow are going to be disappointed again as the Android OS version remains at 5.1.1 Lollipop after updating. This update is 328 MB in size so we suggest you download it over a Wi-Fi connection.

As always, the roll out is incremental and the update rolled out over the air will reach all the users soon. If you can’t wait, you can check for the update manually by going to Settings > About  phoneSystem Update.
