Ever since the fallout between Cyanogen and OnePlus occurred late last year, many OnePlus One owners, wondered what would come of their beloved One running CyanogenOS. However, shortly afterwards, OnePlus officially announced that they were releasing their own OS for the One. At the time, this was an unnamed OS and in spite of lacking a name, an alpha version was released at the start of the year. Although, this was a rather basic offering which was very much close to stock, with little notable OnePlus influence.
Since, the alpha release, a number of changes have now come to the surface. These include the announcement of the OS as ‘OxygenOS‘. Not to mention, a secondary OS dubbed HydrogenOS for the Chinese market. This was also followed by the announcing of a number of Paranoid Android ROM developers working on the new OnePlus ROM. In more recent news, however, OnePlus officially announced a few days back that their OxygenOS will be available to download from March 27th. Possibly even earlier. It is worth knowing that this OS will not come as an over-the-air (OTA) update for the OnePlus One and instead will have to be sideloaded onto your device.
Either way, the release of Oxygen has been quite big news over the last few months and many One owners are interested to know and see what OnePlus can offer their devices, in terms of a working OS. What will it be like? Will it be Cyanogen influenced and have all the tweaks One owners have come to expect? Well, while all of that still remains a mystery, it looks like an interesting image has popped up in Twitter. This one comes from known leakster @leaksfly and seems to show OxygenOS running on a OnePlus One. In particular, the image seems to show ‘Oxygen Weather’, which is probably the stock weather app on the latest OS. Whether this image represents a final build remains to be seen, although, the device shown in the image does show today’s date. One week to go until the OS is fully released.
