Android Marshmallow's impact on OxygenOS

    With the release of the developer version of Android Marshmallow, how will this effect OxygenOS? Will new updates be released to optimize the OS for Marshmallow instead of Lollipop. Will this come stock on OnePlus 2's shipped after the official release?

    Just some questions that have come to mind.

    Post any questions that the release of Android Marshmallow has made you think about.

    I'll do my best to answer any questions that I can.

    i don't think something big will happen to fast ;) it will take some time after the official release of stock android 6.0 as it did with CM12 (lollipop)

    It took about 4 months for OPO to get Lillipop from KitKat. it will probably take about that long for OPT to get Marshmallow from Lollipop.

    That's what most people seem to think. I guess Oxygen will need another update if any aesthetic appeal changes come (unlikely though)

    Yup no quick release of new Android if you have opo products. If you want newest Android quickly after release have to go nexus or moto x line.

    Let Google release 6.1.2 first then OP will wake up to write a thread here saying they're working on 6.0.

    Let a month or two pass by, then OP will update that 6.0 is ready and waiting for Google certification.

    Finally, add 1 more month to get the release which will be same OS as AOSP with minor tweaks and added bugs. And as you put your hands on this *new* OS, you're already some version behind.

    but i wouldn't go for that... when they released CM12 (lollipop) on OPO, they also promised it 3 months after lollipop launch... but if i remember correctly it was like about 5 months^^

    Oxygen should be improved A LOT on this version, after is fully stable on Lollipop, they can think to update to Marshmallow

    It won't impact in any way. Oxygen will only be updated after the final version of Android M is released. Nevertheless, it might take up to 3 months to see O2OS updated after the final source code is released from Android.

    I saw that someone else said that 4 months would probably be the time. Do you know the usual wait times for other big companies (samsung, htc, lg, etc.) to receive updates to their OS after public/ final release?

    It was around the 4-5 month marker. Lollipop officially launched end of November-early December. CM12 was released to OPO around Early to Mid April.
    :)
    Around the same time. But unless you buy the phone directly from Samsung, HTC, or LG. The upgrade to the new OS varies greatly because the Carriers have to do their testing and load their own software for their customers. So someone's S6 could get Android M months ahead of another depending on where they are and who they are with.

    OPT has the benefit of pushing updates direct to customers via OTA without going through Carriers. However, since they are a much smaller company, they probably do not have the resources to push out the same timeframe as bigger companies.

    After the release of Android Marshmallow,One plus will integrate Oxygen OS with it. It will take a couple of months after the release of Android M. Personally,it will impact OP2 users but not in a big way..
    And I don't think so,they will be shipping with Android M out of the box soon after it releases.
