The Chinese start up brand OnePlus is constantly in the news for one reason or another. OnePlus launched their smartphone named as One which was later dubbed as “Flagship Killer” among much fanfare. OnePlus One was planned to be a limited release but it got huge response and is now shipped to other countries also, European countries being the latest addition to the list of countries where OnePlus One is being shipped. In India OnePlus faced huge controversy over the OS bundled with the smartphone i.e. Cyanogen Mod for which India’s largest smartphone manufacturer has acquired the exclusive rights. Some months later reports surfaced that OnePlus is working on their own OS and planning to release in the coming months. OnePlus teased the new OxygenOS many times before making it official. After much promotion and wide spread rumors March 27 was declared as the date on which this new OS has to be debuted. But look likes OnePlus has not released the new Oxygen OS as promised as 27 March has already passed.
Earlier this month reports surfaced that the new OS will be delayed due to some certification problems from Google which was later confirmed by the concerned officials from OnePlus. OnePlus One users across the world were waiting impatiently to get a taste of this new OS. Rumor mills have started to run hot again as what must be reason of the delay with many OnePlus fans taking to social media networks to lash out the desperation of not getting the new OS for which they have been waiting for so long. As of now situation is clarified a bit by OnePlus by releasing an official statement addressing the cause of the delay on their official blog:
“The ROM is fully functional and we have quite a few people in the office running it on their own devices without any issues. The delay is caused by extra quality control. We want to make sure that OxygenOS passes Google certification, that all future updates can be OTA’ed properly, and that users from all over the world are able to use OxygenOS in the language of their choice.”
As it is evident from the statement released that OnePlus is taking every precaution to make the new OS a more pleasurable experience by testing it for bugs and further quality check.
As far as Cyanogen Mod controvery is concerned, some months back it was stated that OnePlus One smartphones sold in India will not get the latest Cyanogen Mod updates which lead to severe backlash from OnePlus One fans across the country. But removing the cloud of confusion some days back OnePlus executive Carl Pei confirmed on his Twitter account that OnePlus One sold in India will be officially getting the latest Cyanogen Mod updates which is CM12s.
