OnePlus OxygenOS announcement

OnePlus has been experiencing a ton of issues regarding their partnership with Cyanogen Inc., so the flagship killing company decided to create their own ROM, OxygenOS. We’ve seen a very brief preview of the new operating system, but many details haven’t been announced yet, including a tentative release date. But today, OnePlus co-founder Carl Pei announced on Twitter that CM12S and OxygenOS will become available sometime around mid to late March.

@rajarshi_10 We released an L alpha a while ago, but a more stable build (OxygenOS & CM12S) will need to wait until March. Sorry for delay!

It’s been heavily speculated that OxygenOS is meant to replace Cyanogen OS as the default ROM for OnePlus’ next smartphone. But when it comes to the One, Pei recently shed some light on how the company will handle the new OS. In a recent Reddit AMA, Pei explained that the OxygenOS update won’t be available as an OTA (over the air) update on the OnePlus One. He explains:

For the OnePlus One, it will likely not be an OTA, but rather a choice for users who want to try something new and are willing to flash it themselves.

OxygenOS will be a near stock-like build of Android, and the company says they are starting from the ground up on this one, putting only what they want in the OS, taking into consideration everything that users have been asking for.

Are you planning on flashing OxygenOS when it’s available?
