As we’ve previously reported, the flagship killer, OnePlus, had troubles with Cyanogen in India, and now ditched the OS ever since then introduced their latest operating system, OxygenOS.
Here are some updates for you regarding the new OS by OnePlus. The OxygenOS will not be an open source. According the the company, the kernel will be, but the full ROM will not be.
The guys behind the development team of Oxygen OS is Paranoid Android. They are considered one of the most popular custom ROM project besides CyanogenMod. Like CyanogenMod, they offer stability and unique features as well as a stock-like experiences.
Aarone Gascoine, the co-founder and technical lead of PA, Arz Bhatia of PA’s UI/UX Lead, Carlo Savignano, Hieu Nguyen, Jesús David Gulfo Agudelo, and Yamil Ghazi are the said members that will be working on the making of OxygenOS. Including them are 50 other engineers that will be helping them.
There was a very brief preview of the new operating system up in YouTube, so you can check that out for a glimpse of what’s to come.
Just recently, Carl Pei, OnePlus co-founder has released on Twitter that the CM12S and OxygenOS will be released very soon – it will be released right this month! Many are speculating that OxygenOS will replace Cyanogen as the OS for their next smartphone.
However, OnePlus One users will not be able to update their devices to OxygenOS through OTA (Over-The-Air). But they will be given options on whether to stay with their current OS, or they want to try something new and flash it themselves.
The choice is in the users hands, really. But OnePlus’s OxygenOS will be packed with what the users have asked for. Since the month will be over in about a week or so, hopefully they will release the OS in time!
