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!
