It's only been a couple weeks since the last update for the OnePlus One smartphone landed back on August 12. Despite the short time span since the last update, the new update is one that many OnePlus One users have been clamoring for because this one aims to fix issues some users have been having with the smartphone's touchscreen.

This update is XNPH33R incremental and is a maintenance release with critical updates inside. Other than packing a fix for touchscreen issues, it has some other stuff inside that users will appreciate. One of the other issues addressed in this update is poor battery life that some are experiencing.

The change list also shows a new radio image and some unspecified audio fixes. The update decreases power consumption in idle state and the update brings other unspecified audio fixes. A CVE-2014-4943 security update is also included for a serious security issue that could allow nefarious users to gain privileges with the phone.

Unfortunately, early users of the update are saying that it doesn't completely fix the issues with the touchscreen. Reports indicate that the screen is still jumpy making it hard to unlock the phone using trace patterns. A video of the multitouch issues with the phone can be viewed above.
