OnePlus says Cyanogen OS 12.1 coming soon for OnePlus One; OnePlus Will Roll Out Android 5.1-Based OxygenOS With OnePlus 2

OnePlus has announced on its official forum that it will be launching OnePlus 2 with Android Lollipop 5.1-based OxygenOS. The company has also been picking up pace to release updates for OnePlus One owners.

OnePlus have announced that the latest version of Cyanogen, Cyanogen OS 12.1 (based on Android 5.1), which is currently undergoing testing and Google certification will be made available soon for OnePlus One users. On the other side of things, OxygenOS which is OnePlus’s own operating system update based on Android 5.1 is in the works, but it won’t hit the OnePlus One until sometime after the OnePlus 2 arrives.

OnePlus 2 is expected to be launched in the third quarter of this year (July to September), according to previous reports.

“The entire team is currently heads down working on the release for the upcoming OnePlus 2. We are very excited about the work we’ve done and can’t wait to show you all the new features and improvements we’ve made. We have a small team which means in order to do our best work, we need to focus. This unfortunately means that we won’t have an OTA for the community build of OxygenOS we released back in April for the OnePlus One until after the OnePlus 2 release, “said by OnePlus team.

Finally, OnePlus said that a fix is coming for OnePlus One users who are experiencing touchscreen issues with their device. There’s no timeline on when it will arrive (other than “soon”), but both OxygenOS and Cyanogen OS will receive the minor update. It’s a bit of a mess, but at least OnePlus is being quite transparent about where it is with the updates.
