Back in mid-December, OnePlus announced that it would hold a contest to determine the name of the custom Android ROM that it’s working on. Now, a little more than a month later, a name has been determined.
OnePlus has named its custom Android ROM “OxygenOS”. The company says that it likes this name because the element oxygen “is the epitome of simplicity, yet it’s also extraordinarily powerful,” going on to say that oxygen is everywhere, is part of everything that we do, and is an important building block to other “amazing things”.
OnePlus has said before that its custom Android ROM will be based on Lollipop, be free of bloatware, and will utilize Google’s Material Design language. An alpha version was made available earlier this month, which was basically just the stock, AOSP version of Android 5.0 with no other customizations. There’s not much else we know about OxygenOS right now, but OnePlus says that more details will be shared on February 12, so it won’t be long before we learn more.
