OxygenOS images slip out; OnePlus' original ROM to be unveiled on February 12th
As we told you near the end of last month, a contest winner came up with the name OxygenOS for the original ROM to be unveiled on February 12th by OnePlus. The latter might have been spurred into action by Cyanogen's deal in India with Micromax, which ended up turning into a legal battle. A ban against the sale of the Cyanogen driven OnePlus One in the country was reversed in December when an Indian court ruled that the Cyanogen flavored handsets from Micromax are part of a much different niche (read "entry-level") than the flagship category that the OnePlus One belongs to. But a final ruling is expected this month.

On Tuesday, some images from the OxygenOS ROM have leaked, revealing a flat looking UI with icons arranged in categories. The weather information seems light with just a temperature listing, but we should wait for the actual unveiling in case these images are not from the final version of the OS.

OxygenOS is quite different than Cyanogen. OnePlus One users might run into culture shock. Take a look for yourself by clicking on the slideshow below!

Thanks for the tip!

Not so beautiful. The flat squared icons looked great.

The hell is with this UI! It looks like it's made for 10 year olds!

Yea, maybe OnePlus should have switched to ParanoidAndroid or OmniROM or SlimLP or Cataclysm, instead of making their own

yes then paranoidandroid can make a deal with another vendor and lock out oneplus.
Much better to get your own and hire the good developers from cyanogenmod, PA, slimLP and omni. create a more solud financially stable alternative to cyanogen.

All these CM and Oxygen etc. are just pale imitation of the original.

Maybe they intentionally leaked this so to be amazed on their launch. Setting the expectation low. Very very low. Well at least the flagship phone will run very very smoothly with this light-looking OS.

Most of the time the problem i found with local manufacturers or chinese phone manufacturers was the software. Either there was no updates or the ui looked terrible. When one plus announced that OPO would come with CM i was delighted. This meant that there would be software updates and customisation. But now.......

Why can't they just make a stock android ROM with as little modification as possible. They can flashable mods as options. They should learn from motorola.

Just by a Motorola device; problem solved. Now you know why companies do skin jobs.
