OnePlus Oxygen OS Released


In February OnePlus announced that they were working on their own version of Android to replace CyanogenMod OS in their flagship smartphone. Yesterday OnePlus officially announced the release of Oxygen OS, which is a lightly skinned version of Android 5.0.2 Lollipop. Some of the key customizations in Oxygen OS include:

  • Gestures: Several original OnePlus features have been built right into OxygenOS, including screen-off gestures like double-tap to wake, music controls, and shortcuts for the camera and flashlight.
  • Customization: With customizable lockscreen wallpapers and the ability to switch between hardware and software navigation keys, OxygenOS allows you to make your phone distinctly yours.
  • Quick Settings: With our new quick settings feature, tiles can be added, removed, and re-organized with the click of a button, and it blends beautifully right into the notification tray’s UI. It just makes sense.

This release of Oxygen OS comes about a week after the originally promised launch date.  Currently CyanogenMod 12 for the OnePlus is still in development despite the two companies ending their official relationship. This is great news for OnePlus owners as you now have a few officials options for your OnePlus.

"I am currently a researcher and Adjunct Professor at Arizona State University and Grand Canyon University. I fell in love with Android with the Nexus One release and realized that it was superior to iOS in all the ways I care about. I still use a Mac (and an iPhone for the camera), but my Apple tech products pale in comparison to my number of Android devices (watches, tablets, and phones). When I’m not rooting/modding one of my many Android phones or doing math/programming, you can find me taking in Phoenix Suns/Arizona Diamondbacks games in downtown Phoenix, and drinking good beer!"
