LONDON: OnePlus took notice of the popularity of the CyanogenMod, and so it joined hands with the developer in producing the OnePlus One flagship last year.
While the relationship between the two start-ups has not been great lately, it seems Cyanogen will still release its latest Android version for the OnePlus One smartphone.
According to a report by Android Central, Cyanogen is already conducting the final testing for its latest version, based on Android 5.0 Lollipop. The update will reportedly be headed first to the OnePlus One phone.
In the report, the new CyanogenMod version will be specifically based on the Android 5.0.1 Lollipop build which was released a few weeks after Android Lollipop became official. Aside from the OnePlus One, the new update will also roll out to Micromax Yureka, one of the Indian manufacturers whom Cyanogen is now partnering.
The treatment for OnePlus comes as a surprise, especially after the start-up mobile manufacturer announced its new Android version for later versions of its OnePlus One. In early February, the company announced Oxygen OS. With the announcement, it is safe to say that the manufacturer will use the new OS for its upcoming OnePlus Two flagship.
The CM12 update will be Cyanogen’s latest and fastest version, just like what Android 5.0 Lollipop is to Google. For many years, Cyanogen has enabled its UI to perform better, faster and more efficient than stock Android, mainly because it takes away all of the bloatware that comes with it.
For power users who cannot get enough of their Android devices, switching to CyanogenMod is a way to make their phone work faster. Cyanogen has also provided Android updates even to devices that are not supported by official OTA updates.
For instance, an HTC Sensation that was released in 2011 and has only been supported until Ice Cream Sandwich can be updated to the latest Android version through CyanogenMod.
In the report, other Cyanogen-powered devices that are coming to the market include the Alcatel OneTouch Hero 2. The device is currently run by CM 11, though it would most likely be updated to CM 12 once Cyanogen finishes its final tests.
