The original OnePlus One will receive its serving of Marshmallows sometime in Q1 2016, via Cyanogen Inc. Despite the public breakup between OnePlus and Cyanogen, Steve Kondik’s company continues to support the OnePlus One with updates, as per its original commitment.

Kondik recently revealed that Cyanogen targets a release for CyanogenMod 13 (based on Android 6.0) by Christmas. However, this tentative ETA refers to CyanogenMod, the community project, while the commercial Cyanogen OS 13 will only follow suit in 2016.

Concerning its semi-official Oxygen OS build for the OnePlus One, OnePlus said it will offer an update “when the time allows.”

Moving on to this year’s devices, founder Carl Pei said that the OnePlus 2 will get a Marshmallow-based build of Oxygen OS in Q1 2016. Pei specified that the update won’t bring a custom fingerprint API, as some users have requested; instead, the firmware will make use of Google’s standard fingerprint sensor API, which is built into Marshmallow.

As for the new OnePlus X, OnePlus is not ready to offer any information at this point.

OnePlus – like other Android OEMs – found itself in an embarrassing situation early this year, when it failed to deliver on its promise to bring Lollipop to the OnePlus One within 90 days of its official launch. This time around, Carl Pei and the team seem to be taking a cautious approach, which can’t hurt the young company, by Pei’s own admission.
