OnePlus expands reach to Indonesia starting January 27

After its rather tragic launch in India, Chinese startup OnePlus is turning its gaze to Southeast Asia, starting with Indonesia. The OEM has just announced the upcoming availability of the OnePlus One in the world's largest archipelago. But like in India, it isn't doing it alone. OnePlus is partnering with e-tailer Lazada to bring the much hyped and much desired smartphone to the region. Hopefully this time, with fewer if not no legal headaches.

Cyanogen’s Steve Kondik chimes in on OnePlus, Micromax row

Although India seems to be quickly becoming the new darling of the mobile industry after China, it isn't without its own share of controversy. So far the latest and biggest involves Indian OEM Micromax and Chinese startup OnePlus and it all revolves around the software provided by Cyanogen, Inc. While our limited outsider perspective would have us assign roles of villain and victim in this drama, things are, as always, not as clear cut. CyanogenMod founder Steve Kondik gives a few insights into some of the things that have happened behind the scenes.

OnePlus intros non-Cyanogen ROM, still on alpha

OnePlus may be having some issues in India but it's not stopping the young Chinese phone manufacturer to work on new projects. We knew that it was working on a new ROM and OnePlus forum members were even asked to name it via a contest a couple of weeks ago. OnePlus is finally launching its own custom ROM although it's not the final version yet. According to the company, the early build doesn't have any extras aside from the AOSP Lollipop stock features.

OnePlus and Cyanogen go head-to-head in India

When in a span of a month, you see Cyanogen make an exclusive agreement with Indian retailer Micromax, and then you see OnePlus break their exclusive “invite only” purchasing process to launch a new purchasing avenue for the Indian market, you know there was something big brewing. To put quite shortly, it looks like OP has been wronged, but because of a court decision – it looks like it won’t be able to continue selling the OnePlus One phone in India.

Something is lost in transferring sound technology to our small and compact smartphones and tablets. OnePlus, the makers of the elusive the One has now partnered with Waves Audio to bring the Maxx Audio technology and make your One sound better.

OnePlus One “mini” leaked, Dec. 17 event teased

The OnePlus One is a device that is almost characterized by contradiction. Labeled as the "flagship killer", the smartphone did arrive with high end specs and a price to die for, but it also ended up being widely unavailable except from invites. And more recently, just when it launched in India, it saw Cyanogen practically withdrew support for its OS for devices sold in India. Despite that, it seems that the Chinese startup wants a repeat, but this time in a smaller scale.

Cyanogen won’t update OnePlus Ones bought in India

It seems that Cyanogen, Inc., the commercial entity spun out of CyanogenMod's core developers (and not the open source CyanogenMod community itself) is flip flopping a bit on the issue of OTA updates on the OnePlus One in India. After reassuring OnePlus One fans and owners that it will continue to roll out updates worldwide, even in India, it now clarifies a caveat that it failed to mention before. It won't be updating Indian OnePlus One devices.
