With the departure of Cyanogen as OnePlus’s software ally a couple months ago, OnePlus decided they will be making their own custom ROM based on Android 5.0 Lollipop.
Today, after polling their fans and customers on what to name their future OS, they have announced it to be called OxygenOS.
“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. With our ROM, that means software that is open, customizable, and free of bloat and unnecessary features.”
“As an element, Oxygen is the epitome of simplicity, yet it’s also extraordinarily powerful.”
OnePlus plans to create OxygenOS as a custom ROM to have many similar features as CyanogenMod, but also adding their own unique abilities to their upcoming flagship successor to the OnePlus One.
OnePlus plans to release more information on the custom ROM on February 12th.
