The first smartphone to officially ship with CyanogenMod may have only come out at the end of the 2013, but Cyanogen Inc. has bigger plans and will be shipping its first smartphone in the first half of this year.
Early this morning, and coming after months of speculation, Cyanogen’s new hardware partner for its upcoming phone was revealed to be OnePlus, the new company of Ex-Oppo exec Pete Lau.
On OnePlus’ blog, it said that their first phone will ship with a specially designed version of CyanogenMod “with exciting new elements and features.”
Hopefully we’ll be seeing this device come to the U.S. and with support for LTE, unlike the Oppo N1 that only had HSPA+ support. No other information was given about the upcoming device at this time, except that Cyanogen and OnePlus will be launching it in select markets and then eventually expanding globally.
