With all of the issues that OnePlus has been having due to their partnership with Cyanogen Inc., we heard a while back that the flagship killing company was building their own ROM, which they have now officially given a name. Introducing OxygenOS.
What’s in a name? Well, that is about all there is to the announcement on the OnePlus forums, a name. OxygenOS is but a theory at this point, with further info promised to be announced on February 12th.
This new OS may have been at least partially spawned by a need to part ways with Cyanogen, but it is a great way for the company with the motto ‘Never Settle’ to take control of their OS as they have their hardware. OnePlus 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.
The name of the ROM was decided based on user entries as well. OnePlus goes on about how oxygen, the stuff in the air, is a part of our world and necessary to live and all that. Marketing aside, we assume that forum member midfire from Belgium will get a nice treat in the mail as a thank you for the name suggestion.
Head on over to the OnePlus forums to get all their details, and stay tuned, we are excited to see what OxygenOS has to offer. February 12th will be a good day.
What do you think, is OnePlus on the right track in building their own Android OS, or should they source out to another established Android developer?
