Earlier tonight we saw a supposed leak of the upcoming OnePlus One. The leak included press renders of the phone, a variety of back covers, and supposedly depicted the phones upcoming UI. Carl Pei of OnePlus took to the official OnePlus forums moments ago to put an end to the rumors running rampant this evening:
There has been a lot of speculation and excitement about the operating system of the OnePlus One. As you know, we’ve been working with the Cyanogen team on this product for quite some time, starting from when OnePlus was just an idea. Both teams have been deeply involved in both the software and the hardware parts of the experience, and it’s been an amazing ride so far.
Although we’re still running pre-production versions of CyanogenMod 11S, I’d still like to share with you some of the things that the Cyanogen team has been working on.
The new stuff is pretty cool, so here’s a taste of what’s to come.
So there you have it – the default UI of CyanogenMod 11S. If you’re not a fan of CM’s new UI for Android, Steve Kondik has confirmed in the past that if you’d like to go back to the standard CM and Android Holo UI, you can. Just as shown above, visit CM’s Theme settings and select as much or as little Holo as you heart desires.
EDIT: I reached out to Carl asking for a screenshot with software keys. Here it is!
