OnePlus has been moving along in a methodical way toward the release of the CyanogenMod powered OnePlus One smartphone on April 23, 2014. The marketing team has been slowly releasing bits of information, but thus far the focus has been on hardware. That changed today when a tipster shared a couple images from the operating system. The first issue noted is that the screens are for “CyanogenMod 11S” as opposed to a plain “11″ that is used in reference to the original CyanogenMod system. It appears this is an indication that some special customizations have been made to CyanogenMod 11 for use on the new OnePlus One.
One of the screens shows a version of the lock screen showing various items like the date, weather, time and battery level on a solid background. A space is also available for display of incoming messages. Absent is any indication of an unlock slider and sources are not sure whether users will be able to trigger other apps via lock screen gestures.
The second screen shows some “about” information for the device. Immediately noticeable are the three on-screen buttons for Android as opposed to hardware buttons. This particular screenshot indicates the device is a “One” and is running an Android 4.4.2 base.
