Cyanogen: all global OnePlus One versions will get software updates, including those sold in India
Last week, OnePlus said that it wouldn’t be able to update its One smartphone to new versions of CyanogenMod in India, following a partnership between Cyanogen and Micromax, which reportedly granted the latter exclusive rights to use the OS in the country. However, Cyanogen today wanted to clarify things, and it turns out that OnePlus may have jumped to conclusions a bit too early.

According to Cyanogen, “all global” versions of the OnePlus One, including the model sold in India, will get over the air updates. This has to be good news for most users, since CyanogenMod is one of the things that make the OnePlus smartphone special.

The OnePlus One is available in India since December 2, exclusively via Amazon, though customers need an invite to actually buy it. The 64 GB variant of the handset costs $355 (21,999 INR) in India.

As you may know, the OnePlus One is powered by a quad-core 2.5 GHz Snapdragon 801 processor, further featuring: a 5.5-inch 1080p display, 5 MP front-facing camera, 13 MP rear camera with dual LED flash, 3 GB of RAM, and a 3100 mAh battery. Our OnePlus One review will let you know much more about the smartphone.

I read the article, it clearly states that "To clarify misinformation out there, the OnePlus One will get OTA firmware updates for all global devices, including global devices for our users in India." I guess what they actually mean is that they will keep updating the Global variant, but not the Indian version of OPA. Many of us have bought OPA from outside India, they will be lucky enough to receive the OTA updates and eventually it also means that Indian version will not receive OTA and later will be updated with OPA's own skin of Android..

You are again spreading mis-information. As of now, except in China, global version is sold everywhere installed with cm11s. OPO said device to be sold in India will ship with cm11s so its global version and as per cyanogen all global versions will continue to receive updates regardless of country.

the hardware is the same, how difficult it is to flash a global version of the firmware anyway..

That's great and all, but these kinds of hiccups make me stay away from low-support devices like the OnePlus One...

I doubt it would be anyway closer to even satisfactory. After-sales are going to suck be ready. Although the phone is worthy of the price. Good news anyways for Indian OP owners if CM provides the updates.
