OxygenOS is Here

Smartphone company OnePlus just announced the release of it’s initial version of OxygenOS, a customised version of Android Lollipop, optimised for its OnePlus One phone. “Developing OxygenOS has been an incredibly fun and challenging experience for all of us. In this environment where everyone is fighting to standout with custom ROMs, we think it’s important to go back to basics. We place things like performance and battery life over gimmicks and bloated features. “ announced the company, on an official blog post.

OnePlus was working on an operating system already since news broke in January, when the company split with partner Cyanogen, and ever since the community has been looking forward to the reveal of the operating system OxygenOS, based on Android Lollipop-based operating system.

The demo presented on the company blog, shows many features of the new OxygenOS which can already be downloaded and isn’t available as an OTA update. See below for more.

OnePlus has made headlines over the past year for the One, a premium-spec low-price device — it comes in at $299/$349 (16GB/64GB).
