OnePlus unveils new logo for OxygenOS and the team behind the new ROM

The OnePlus One may not be the most available device on the market just yet, but that doesn’t mean it doesn’t have exciting things coming down the pipe. As previously announced, the company’s OxygenOS ROM will be one of its shining elements when it releases later this year, and now the company has decided to show off a brand new logo and the team behind its development.

On a blog post published on February 12, OnePlus revealed the official brand new logo for OxygenOS, which looks plenty similar to the traditional OnePlus logo. On top of that, though, OnePlus also unveiled the team behind the new ROM and outlined just where some of the popular developers come from, including many members of Paranoid Android.

OnePlus says the new software is all about offering a lightweight but full-featured experience, and that it will be “cleaned and streamlined for performance.” Beyond that, though, as far as a release date goes nothing has been nailed down just yet, as OnePlus is dealing with the many-layered certification process right now. OnePlus also wants to make sure that OxygenOS is stable when it launches, which makes perfect sense.

Are you looking forward to OxygenOS?

    I don’t want to bash them, but until they execute well on a consumer level, it almost doesn’t matter. I hear very good things about the phone itself, but that horrific launch of a device was embarrassing. Why was it so hard for them to simply launch a phone that people could buy. Sale out. Restock. Repeat. Support with updates and bug fixes until end of life. Successor.

    Personally, I wouldn’t of bought the phone anyway, because I was a bit picky about the design. I felt it was too big. I own a Note 3, but I felt their design choice caused it to be bigger than it should have been, because of their bezel and combination of their soft and hardware keys. And they were very misleading when they said it was smaller than this and that by hiding it under previous phones. When really it was taller than most phones, it just wasnt as wide. That’s more of a personal issue, but if they can a least organize a traditional launch, then it would be better for them and the Android community. Just my two sense. Even when I’m not that interested in buying a device, I want it to do good for the platform I favor. That’s not wrong is it?

      Let me Google that for you:
      “…the invite system is because we’re still learning. Launching a product worldwide is ambitious for a 5 month old startup. We are sure that there will be hiccups along the way and that the purchasing experience will not be perfect from the very start. With invites, we can control and ramp up availability, giving a chance for our logistics and customer service teams to catch up if anything unexpected happens.

      You have no idea. You just have no idea at all. That process is very hard, even for multimillionaire giants like Apple and Samsung. Now imagine how difficult would it be for a small startup with just a few nickels in their pockets. They have everything to lose, and despite their shortcomings, I think they did it admirably.
