OnePlus One owners will have to wait just a little bit longer before getting to (officially) savor the sweet taste of Lollipop. Announced by OnePlus co-founder Carl Pei via Twitter, CyanogenMod 12S and OxygenOS will be available an as OTA update in mid to late March.
OnePlus originally hoped to have the update ready within three months of Lollipop’s release, so releasing in the next month is still admirable. The reason for OnePlus missing its original 90-day time frame is relatively simple. Apparently, “proprietary drivers, code, QA, certifications” are responsible for the slight delay.
An alpha Lollipop build has already been released, but the upcoming OTA should be more stable and ready for daily driver action. Once CM12S does hit your handset, enjoy it. It may be the last official CyanogenMod based update you see for the device.
