OnePlus CEO uses social media to confirm February 12th launch of OxygenOS
A deal made between Indian smartphone manufacturer Micromax and Cyanogen made things difficult for OnePlus in India. The OnePlus One is driven by Cyanogen everywhere except China, and Micromax had asked the court to ban the phone in India because of its own exclusive deal with Cyanogen. After being banned by an Indian Court in December, a little more than a week later the court order was temporarily lifted. The judge changed his mind when he realized that because Micromax's Yu phones are low-end models and the OnePlus One is a flagship device, the two are competing in much different categories of the market.
OnePlus ran a contest to name its new OS, and the person who came up with the OxygenOS name has won a 64GB Sandstone Black OnePlus One handset. Speaking of Cyanogen and the OnePlus One, earlier today we told you that the next Cyanogen update for the phone will include the highly regarded third-party QWERTY app SwiftKey.
