LineageOS announces a bunch of newly supported devices for its preview builds

Last month, Cyanogen announced that it was shutting down its offices, leaving the future of CyanogenMod in question. However, from the company's digital ashes rose a new project called Lineage OS. The developer team behind the operating system announced that it would support more than 80 devices.

However, at launch, it only supported a handful of devices. Now, the company has updated its roster of supported devices, adding a number of older handsets to the list.

Previously, the developer team had only included the LG Nexus 5X, Huawei Nexus 6P, Motorola Moto G4 / G4 Plus, Nextbit Robin and Xiaomi Redmi 1S. The company has now updated its list of supported devices to include:

  • Asus Nexus 7 2013 (4G / Wi-Fi)
  • LG Nexus 5
  • Huawei Honor 5X
  • LG G4 (T-Mobile / International)
  • LG G3 S
  • LG G3 Beat
  • Motorola Moto X Pure (2015)
  • Motorola Moto E
  • Motorola Moto G
  • Motorola Moto G4 Play
  • OnePlus One
  • Oppo Find 7a
  • Oppo Find 7s
  • Samsung
  • Samsung Galaxy S III (AT&T / Sprint / T-Mobile / Verizon / International)
  • Samsung Galaxy S II (International)
  • Sony Xperia SP
  • Xiaomi Mi 3w and Mi 4
  • Xiaomi Mi 5
  • Xiaomi Mi Max
  • Xiaomi Redmi 3/Prime
  • Xiaomi Redmi Note 3

As can be seen, the list of devices has increased drastically. That said, the developer team has not announced how many installs its operating system has garnered. Previously, the company had announced that experimental builds of Lineage OS had been downloaded more than 50,000 times. This figure is bound to change with more devices being supported everyday.
