Oneplus has confirmed that the OnePlus 2 will not officially get the Android Nougat 7.0 update. This will leave a lot of bitter taste in the mouths of OnePlus 2 owners. The device which was supposed to get software updates for at least 24 months only received one incremental update before it was abandoned by the company.
OnePlus has reportedly confirmed that Android Nougat isn’t new, and the company is happy with what they are doing with software, so it won’t be pushing official Nougat update to the OnePlus 2.
“When we built the OnePlus 2 we didn’t have the software infrastructure team in place we do now.” said OnePlus in an interview.

OnePlus recently admitted that the USB Type-C cable for the OnePlus 2 does not conform to the USB Type-C 1.1 spec, and has agreed to give refunds. This admission comes after a Google engineer, Benson Leung, tested the OnePlus 2’s USB Type-C cable and concluded that it “may cause damage to your charger, hub or PC USB port” if used on a fast-charging device.
However, there’s a condition to the refund. Since the cable won’t cause any damage to the device itself, those who own the handset will not receive the refund or replacement cable. Instead, OnePlus will only refund those who purchased the cable separately. The company is of the opinion that the [...]

There has been some trouble in trying to log on to the site, most likely because of all the traffic it must be getting right now. But hey, don’t give up hope just yet if you think a OnePlus 2 is worth it. For specs, review and other details of the smartphone, click here.
If rumours are to be believed, OnePlus may announce a OnePlus X smartphone in the country very soon. After OnePlus One and OnePlus 2 smartphones, the company might be gearing to introduce a device more affordable than its previous phones.
The Chinese company is hosting an event in Bangalore today and Pete Lau, the CEO of OnePlus will be present there. According to official reports, the event will be a corporate one but speculations about what else the company can announce tomorrow are endless. Keeping in mind the recent ‘Make in India’ announcements from brands like Xiaomi and Lenovo, OnePlus is also expected to follow their league.
OnePlus 2 is going to be made available for sale without invites on the 12th of October. If you’ve been eyeing the device for a while but always fell short of an invite, this is your window. However, the glitch of this perfect bubble is that the phone will be made available for sale only for an hour -between 12 PM to 1 PM. So it pretty much is a blink and you’ll miss sort of an opportunity.
The announcement was made on in official blog post by OnePlus. Here’s a look at our video review of the device:
