When OnePlus broke up with Cyanogen it made things a little more difficult for them on the software front. They were able to update the OnePlus One to Lollipop with their own OxygenOS, but it looks like the next update may take a while. Many users have been asking about OxygenOS’ Android 5.1 update. OnePlus says it won’t be available until after the upcoming OnePlus 2 is released.
We don’t know a ton about the OnePlus 2, but it must be relatively close if OnePlus is already referencing it by name. The OnePlus One was announced and released in April of 2014, so we’re already past the year anniversary. It’s a bummer for current OnePlus One owners who were promised fast updates to the latest versions of Android. Once again the #neversettle mantra has come back to haunt OnePlus.
