As you all know by now, OnePlus One comes with Cyanogen OS pre-installed, but that won’t be the case with its successor. OnePlus and Cyanogen will part ways soon, and OnePlus is working on their own version of the OS. The company has announced that their new OS / ROM will be called Oxygen OS, and yesterday they gave out some more details regarding the whole project. The company has unveiled the Oxygen OS logo and the team that is working on the ROM itself, the project is held mostly by Paranoid Android crew. We also found out that the new OS will be announced next month, so stay tuned for that, and in case you’d like to find out what OnePlus said yesterday, visit this article.
That being said, the company has announced something else a while back, Hydrogen OS, which will be their new OS for non-global devices. This might sound confusing, but it’s relatively simple, global devices will ship with Oxygen OS, while non-global devices will come with Hydrogen OS pre-installed. If you don’t live in China, all you need to focus on is the Oxygen OS, but we do have a new leak to share with you regarding Hydrogen OS this time though. If you take a look at the image below this article, you’ll notice what seems to be a screenshot of the Hydrogen OS. This image surfaced on Weibo (Chinese social network) and it didn’t really arrive with any additional information unfortunately. The leak only states that this is the screenshot from Hydrogen OS and that’s it, we have no way of confirming this information, so take it with a pinch of salt, as always.
OnePlus seems to be on the right path here if you ask me, hiring a part of Paranoid Android team and combining them with some other OS developing forces could prove to be a successful tactic. It remains to be seen if they had enough time to develop a respectable and powerful OS. Everything will be reveal next month, so we’ll just have to wait for it… until then, however, let us know what you think about all this, do you think that OnePlus’ new OS will be a solid offering or nowhere near Cyanogen OS?
