The OnePlus One team has cleared a few details about its new ROM OxygenOS at an AMA interview on Reddit. It has revealed some of the fascinating details that we have always craved for. For the people who don’t know much about OxygenOS, It’s the company’s new ROM or take it as a skin which they’re going to use on its new devices but for the OnePlus One, you need to flash it as an external ROM on your device. Oh and yes, it’s going to take the place of CyanogenMod.
The OxygenOS is said to launch sometime in this month, March. It can be a massive overhaul to its earlier skin – Cyanogen. We’re not confident unless we have a detailed list of its specs and features but we assume that the company has got a valid enough reason to dump Cyanogen – which has given their devices a new height and kept it apart from other Android-running devices in the market.
Also, the OxygenOS won’t have any bloatware, so that’s a plus. They have also changed the camera app, though it may feel like Android’s stock camera but will have silent mode and faster focusing. Unfortunately, it won’t have a multi-window support as seen on other devices.
The OxygenOS’s home screen will have a similar look to Android 5.0 and it will surprising feel like it too. We don’t have any problem in this aspect. It’s simple and intuitive, what else do we even require?
The following ‘leaked’ images show how simple and clean OnePlus wants its OxygenOS to be. We have absolutely no questions on their decision. We love it. Of course, given that if the images are true and genuine.
Not to forget that the ROM will only work with OnePlus’s hardware. They claim it to be a free and an open release but it seems it can only work with certain drivers which are proprietary to the Company. So you need to get a OnePlus One to use and experience their OxygenOS.
That is all the information we gathered, but we are expectantly waiting for its full revelation in this March. We will let you know with every possible detail we can find. So stay tuned.
