OnePlus One can now receive Cyanogen OS 12.1 OTA update

After the Oxygen OS 2.0.1 update for OnePlus 2 was released, the OnePlue One is also getting an update to Cyanogen OS 12.1. This particular version already includes Android 5.1.1 Lollipop so OnePlus One owners no longer have to complain that their units are becoming outdated. We actually don't remember when was the last update for the first-gen OnePlus smartphone since the version was released (was there any?) but we're glad the Cyanogen OS 12.1 is here.

Wileyfox announces Cyanogen OS-running smartphones

Everyday, several new Android phones are being introduced. Most of them come from Android device manufacturers in South Korea, Japan, or China. This time, a new UK-based brand known as Wileyfox has just introduced a couple of new Android-powered smartphones. It's a bit of a surprise because it's from the United Kingdom but looks like our British friends want to compete within the Android game.

ZUK and Cyanogen make partnership official

Cyanogen recently claimed that it has more users than BlackBerry and Windows Mobile combined and with more than 50 million users now. We're a bit skeptical about this claim for many reasons but looks like the company is determined to make it really big in the tech industry. After officially partnering with Micromax in India and with Microsoft with a more solid “strategic partnership” for Android devices, we're learning that Cyanogen has also made its partnership with ZUK official.

Cyanogen claims to have ‘more users than Windows Mobile and Blackberry combined’

If you ask anyone on the street about the top two mobile operating systems in the world, anybody who has an idea about smartphones will probably tell you correctly, Android and iOS. Ask them who’s on third spot, and the answer might not come as easy. Fact is, that spot is somehow one of the most coveted positions in the tech industry these days, and Cyanogen is claiming that they got it.

Micromax YU rolls out new Yu Yureka Plus, an Amazon India exclusize

If you’re not familiar with YU, it’s a brand under Micromax. And who is Micromax again you ask? It’s the company that Cyanogen partnered with instead of OnePlus which resulted to a number of issues and temporary injunctions. Amidst all these, Micromax still was able to unveil a YUreka Cynagon smartphone in India last December. A few months after, we heard a follow up phone dubbed the “Project Caesar” would be revealed.

Alcatel, Cyanogen’s Hero 2+ project gets scrapped in favor of future product

Device manufacturer Alcatel made the news at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona back in March that it was teaming up with software developer Cyanogen for the Alcatel OneTouch Hero 2+ phablet. It was supposed to be a next gen phablet with Cyanogen software running the show. We’ve just received news that both Alcatel and Cyanogen have announced the termination of this project in favor of a future product.

Cyanogen-powered ZUK Z1 hints on a 4XXX mAh battery

The ZUK Z1 is a new entry to the mobile arena yet it’s highly anticipated because its manufacturer has been boasting about its large battery. We only had few details until this week when some details have been presented in a special event. As you all know by now, ZUK is a new phone brand backed by Lenovo. The company's first flagship smartphone will run CyanogenOS and its screen will feature a U-Touch fingerprint scanner-gesture control system that allows a new way to swipe and unlock the screen.

Cyanogen-running ZUK Z1 in the works, will probably rival OnePlus 2

Another player has entered the China-made smartphone industry. Meet ZUK, a new startup that is said to be backed by Lenovo and Chinese software company 360. The name Lenovo alone makes us think that this one has big potential but we have yet to see if its first entry is good enough to rival the numerous models in the market today.

Cyanogen brings its game on with Playphone partnership

Cyanogen, Inc. is expanding its anti-Google Android army, this time with a rather unexpected addition. Most of its previous deals have been to replace core functionality offered by Google's apps and services. This time, however, its partnership with Playphone provides a rather niche feature that isn't easily found in default Android: a social gaming experience. Now owners of the relatively few Cyanogen OS devices can experience a slightly different gaming setup, connecting with both friends and strangers to discover new games and maybe new friends as well.

Cyanogen unveils Andromax Q for Indonesia

The issue between OnePlus and Cyanogen in India is almost over. OnePlus is still in the business and is expected to launch the OnePlus 2 anytime soon while Cyanogen is working on to solidify partnerships with other brands. This week, Cyanogen has proudly announced the Andromax Q. Obviously, it's a new Android phone powered by Cyanogen OS. This smartphone was first launched in Indonesia via Smartfren, a popular telecom provider in Indonesia.
