The falling out between Cyanogen and OnePlus is well known by now but the Chinese smartphone maker is still using CyanogenMod until it can wrap up its own Android ROM, which is looking to be pretty soon. As promised, OnePlus gave us more information on the upcoming ROM, known as OxygenOS, yesterday in a blog post. While little in the way of… well… anything was revealed, the company did explain its reasoning for devloping its own ROM and explained some of the things that users can expect.
We’ve spoken a lot recently about our new ROM, and we’d like to take a moment to share our goals and progress. With the release of OxygenOS just around the corner, we’re officially starting a new chapter of the OnePlus story. And, we’ve got some Android rockstars on board to help us do it. Meet the team behind the future of OnePlus software, see our new logo, and find out what you can expect from our new ROM. “Why are you developing your own ROM?” By doing so, we can offer better localization and faster updates. We can directly implement user feedback and make it easy for the OnePlus community to shape our ROM and create the OS that they want to use. Integration between hardware, software, and the cloud will become more seamless and unified for everyone using a OnePlus device. By creating our own software, we’re better able to work directly with our users to improve our OS. It’s something we’ve become quite fond of saying: when we work together, amazing things happen.
