After weeks of anticipation, OnePlus has finally taken the covers off its flavor of Android, OxygenOS. OnePlus One owners were all set for what would be a ROM for their flagship killers back in February. However, a number of delays were imposed as the build was going through a certification process.
Weeks passed, then a month, and just as it was looking like we might see two months pass beyond OnePlus’ February 12th deadline, OxygenOS is available to download and install.
Based on Android 5.0.2 Lollipop, OxygenOS is said to be “light and essential” with all the customization, and useful features OnePlus owners have enjoyed with their devices. Gestures are baked in, and quick settings have some nice appointments. The File Manager is of course a welcome touch.
As you can see from the feature video above, and as anticipated, OxygenOS is really a feature augmentation to Lollipop, as the experience looks almost completely stock. That no doubt lends to what looks like smooth and fast performance on the hardware.
OxygenOS is not a required download, users can obviously still opt to keep using Cyanogen ROMs. OnePlus is committed to be prompt with updates, and encourages users to download the company’s feedback app to submit comments about the experience. Click on the source link for all the details.
Thanks Muhammed for the heads-up!
