The OnePlus One is definitely due for some new software, but it looks like owners of the handset will have to wait. Last week, OnePlus explained in a blog post that its OxygenOS update would be ready for consumers on March 27th. However, the company has just revealed that the software is mostly ready, though due to some quality control issues, OxygenOS won’t be rolling out to consumers today.
As for a timeframe for the update? The representative from OnePlus explains that OxygenOS will roll out “very soon”, though we don’t have any more information beyond that. In hopes to win back the trust of its users, though, the company plans to be much more transparent in its progress updates. From OnePlus:
We know you’ve been waiting for a long time, and we owe you answers. So, until OxygenOS is officially released, we will share our progress with you. Every day, no matter how big or small the news is, this post will be updated with information in order to give you more visibility into the process.
To make up for the delay, as promised, OnePlus is giving away five 64GB Sandstone Black OnePlus One handsets to a few lucky forum members. The five winners have been announced, and their names can be found in the OnePlus forum post.
As for the update to CM12, we still have no official word from either Cyanogen or OnePlus as to when we can expect a rollout. We’ll need to check back in a few days to see what the companies are up to.
