Smartphone-maker One plus one just released the initial version of OxygenOS, its forked version of Android Lollipop, optimized for its OnePlus One phone.
In a blog post about the release, the company alternately describes its approach as “back to basics” and “light and essential,” with a focus on performance and battery life. OnePlus also writes:
By creating our own operating system, we can quickly respond to user feedback and make it easier for you to continue playing a fundamental role in the future of OnePlus. Our goal for OxygenOS is to provide faster, more meaningful updates and a better-integrated range of services for every OnePlus user.
