OnePlus officially names their forthcoming ROM OxygenOS

Don’t look now, but OnePlus just found a new name for their in-house ROM that’ll serve as the primary operating system for their phones in the future. The name is OxygenOS, and it was chosen thanks to the necessity of the element in all facets of life. To hear OnePlus tell it:

Oxygen is all around us. It’s part of us and everything we do. It creates the water that carves out valleys and moves mountains. By itself, it’s simple and pure—a fundamental building block. But, as a part of something greater, it can do amazing things. Just like us.

I didn’t say “don’t look now” because the name or meaning behind it is bad. In fact, it’s actually one of the coolest names out there. Rather, we urge you not to look now because there’s nothing to know right now.

We’ll be let in on more details February 12th, but until then all we know about the company’s efforts is that they’re still in the very early alpha stages of what they hope will turn out to be the perfect software for their current — and likely future — smartphones.

The "Google Phone" sounded too awesome to pass up, so I bought a G1. The rest is history. And yes, I know my name isn't Wilson.

  1. My sources have confirmed that this ROM is a breath of fresh air.

  2. Blocky icons… Please say no

  3. Don’t hold your breath waiting to get an invite

    1. simple to get with a tiny bit of effort.

  4. One plus owner, I want a stock look. The Chinese looking icons are just unattractive to me.

    1. Stock look is easy, just run with Nova and install stock icons. This is the beauty of android… I don’t see why the icons are a complaint. Now, in terms of everything else, I’d rather have stock apps instead of some half baked chinese version, but even those are able to be installed if you care enough.

    2. Chinese looking icons? What do you mean?

      1. I was referring to the look of the icons in color os

        1. I never really thought they looked that bad.

  5. Just give me lollipop already!!!

  6. Oxygen was a super sweet Nexus S ROM.

  7. Maybe just like oxygen everyone can use it.

  8. It’s like when some 14 year old builds his first “custom” ROM by bundling a pirated Swype APK and deoxexing it and then names it OxYgEn RoM build 1337 beta codename hax0r

    1. But then again he would provide better support on his XDA thread than OnePlus’s entire company

  9. If this is the only way to get Lollipop on my OPO, so be it.

    1. there are tons of Lollipop Roms on XDA. I have BlissPop Lollipop Rom on my OPO

      1. I’m sure there are. I prefer not dealing with bugs tho and having it straight from the company.

  10. because cyanogen sold out to micromax microshit
