Cyanogenmod now supports a range of mid-range devices
In an official blog post, Cyanogen has revealed that its namesake Android ROM has been updated to support a range of new (and old) budget and mid-range smartphones. The company says it has been working with additional manufacturers to ensure that devices from the likes Xiaomi, Motorola and Oppo are officially supported by the company’s Android ROM.

The update is also the first time that Cyanogenmod has been able to list a HUAWEI device, with the HONOR 4, HONOR 4X and HUAWEI SnapTo all now officially supported. Cyanogen wrote:
These devices represent the first set of HUAWEI devices we’ve supported since CM 7(!) and it’s nice to see the company supporting the community ahead of the rumored HUAWEI Nexus. We’re expecting good things to come here.
The company seems quite happy to have expanded support to so many new devices but while these mid-range devices have been ticked off the list, support for some flagships (such as the Samsung Galaxy S6 and LG G4) is still being worked on. If you are looking to customise your smartphone experience, it’s great to see Cyanogenmod is now available for many non-flagship devices that are likely to be quite popular.
