The OnePlus X is a great little device for $250, with its borderline-flagship specs and small form factor. Although OnePlus has said they don't intend on making a direct successor to the X, at least they are still updating it. Starting today, OnePlus is making the Oxygen 3.1.0 Community Build (based on Android 6.0.1) available for the OnePlus X, just in time for Android 7.0.
If you're unfamiliar, OnePlus tends to release Community Builds of an update before the OTAs begin to roll out. The OxygenOS 3.1.0 build brings changes from Android 6.0.1, new icon packs for the launcher, a new wallpaper picker, and various Shelf UX improvements. In addition, the OnePlus Music Player and OnePlus Gallery are now included. There are also the usual performance improvements and security patches.
OnePlus makes a note that this Community Build does have a few major bugs, hence why it's not the official release. Mobile network stability, possible app compatibility issues, and incomplete language localisations are among the issues you can expect from this build.
