The biggest news announced is a release window for OxygenOS, which is set to launch sometime next month. The company also added that it won’t force the new software as an over-the-air (OTA) update. Instead you’ll be able to flash it yourself, though we assume OnePlus will help guide you through the process.
Responding to another question, OnePlus also revealed that OxygenOS won’t be open source. The company plans to offer a version of Android that’s integrated with its own proprietary drivers. As for the software, the Chinese phone-maker described it as “stock with convenience. No more no less.”
We’re curious to see how OxygenOS turns out, though you may be better off sticking with Cyanogen early on until the company can sort out any initial bugs or issues. OnePlus also notes that it plans to support the One smartphone for “at least another year,” so this won’t be the last update it gets by a long shot.
