That handset has been regarded as one of the bets smartphones in 2014, and OnePlus gained quite a bit of credibility. Now, the OnePlus One has shipped with Cyanogen OS out of the box, but along the way, OnePlus and Cyanogen decided to terminate their partnership, and OnePlus opted to develop their very own Android-based OS, read on.

This China-based company has actually developed two OS’, one for the international market, and one for Chinese users. The international OS is named Oxygen OS, and the Chinese variant is called Hydrogen OS. OnePlus has rolled out Hydrogen OS back in May last year, and has also introduced its beta program at the same time.
