OnePlus, the Chinese smartphone maker, is known for its power packed OnePlus One. One of the biggest reason to get the OnePlus One was its OS, a modified version of Android called Cyanogen.
After things got murky between the two companies last year, OnePlus One has now decided to announce its own custom ROM for the OnePlus One. Its upcoming Android Lollipop ROM will be called as Oxygen OS.
In the blog post announcing the name, OnePlus didn't have much detail on how OxygenOS would be different, but the company went on to say that the ROM will be "open, customizable, and free of bloat and unnecessary features."
"As many of you know, we will be launching our own ROM in the near future. We've spent a lot of time thinking about what this ROM means to us and our fans. We realized that, like everything we do, our true goal is to make the product that we ourselves would want to use-to make great technology more accessible for everyone. When we designed the One, we went back to the drawing board, creating a smartphone that offers a bold, powerful, straight-forward experience. And, that's exactly what we plan to do with our ROM," the company said.
Chinese handset maker is currently in a court battle with Micromax over the Cyanogen OS. The Delhi high court in December banned OnePlus from selling smartphones in India. Later, OnePlus build a custom version of Android to continue selling its devices in the country.
