Cyanogen, the maker of the popular after market Android ROM, has finally ended its partnership with OnePlus and has revealed that it is working with Chinese OEMs to increase adoption of its OS.
Chinese smartphone manufacturer, OnePlus, has posted an invite on Twitter for 20th April, which could be for the announcement of its next flagship and its rumoured cheaper variant.
A report claims the OnePlus Two will be highly customizable, with some hardware 'surprises', and a metal frame boosting its premium credentials - just as well, as it may well cost more than the One.
After a slight delay, OnePlus has finally released its own Lollipop based ROM, called OxygenOS, and users can install it on their devices that currently run Cyanogen.
OnePlus One's CEO has revealed that users from India will be getting an OTA update to Cyanogen 12S, ending the speculation surrounding the future of Cyanogen for the devices in the country.
Cyanogen, the company behind CyanogenMod, have raised $80 million to keep building their community and expand upon their already large user base to become the third place OS behind Apple and Android.
OxygenOS and CyanogenMod 12S - both based on Android Lollipop - should be coming to the OnePlus One in just over 10 days from now, and OnePlus will be giving out free phones if they miss the deadline.
Microsoft might not be funding mod-maker Cyanogen after all, or so a report from Bloomberg claims. However they're still interested in working with Cyanogen in a couple of different ways.

From Office intrigue and Windows 10 revelations, to Google's apology, faster 'broadband', the end of the Surface 2, and a LOT of iPhones, we look back at highlights from this week's top tech news.

OnePlus has launched the One in India, but only the 64GB model will be sold there, and the usual CyanogenMod UX will be replaced by a beta version of the company's own Android 5.0 Lollipop ROM.
OnePlus has announced that its smartphone won't be updated to latest versions of CyanogenMod in India due to Cyanogen's deal with a local manufacturer, but will get a different ROM instead
The team behind the Cyanogenmod Android custom ROM have explained that they are not intending to release an Android L version of the operating system until it is past the developer preview stage.
OnePlus delivered what many thought was impossible - a handset with high-end specs for almost half the price of rival flagships. But how? According to the company's CEO, it's selling each One at cost.
OnePlus has finally revealed their debut smartphone, the OnePlus One, which will go on sale in the U.S., Europe and Asia for $299 for the 16GB model with no contract, and $349 for the 64GB version.

OnePlus has revealed the 16 markets in which it will launch its "perfect smartphone", along with local pricing information. But can the company deliver the "best smartphone ever" at such low cost?
