Cyanogen has reportedly confirmed that OnePlus One sold in India won't be receiving any OS updates in future.
Last week, American software firm, Cyanogen had claimed that OnePlus One global version will get OS updates in India.
"We are proud of the work we did on the OnePlus One. Through our collaboration with OnePlus, we demonstrated the power of strong hardware and software tuned for exceptional performance. To clarify misinformation out there, the OnePlus One will get OTA firmware updates for all global devices, including global devices for our users in India. Rather than have misinformation continue to circulate out there, we felt it important to bring this matter to rest," said Cyanogen on its official blog last week.
However, there was some inconsistency in Cyanogen's clarification as it did not specifically mentioned if OnePlus One sold on Amazon India would also get the update.
Now, finally Cyanogen has categorically confirmed that they won't be releasing OS update to OnePlus One sold in India since the company has joined hands with Micromax to provide exclusive software support for its soon to be launched YU series smartphones in the subcontinent.
"As we had pledged to our users, OnePlus One global devices will receive our OTA firmware updates. If a user in India purchased a OnePlus One global device in channels outside of India, they will receive our OTA firmware updates. However, this excludes OnePlus One regional devices sold directly in India. We are committed to our exclusive partnership in India with Micromax, which will be launching its first Cyanogen OS device under their new YU brand," said Cyanogen on official blog.
Though it comes as disappointment to fans, regional OnePlus One owners need not worry about future OS update; OnePlus has already set up a software team of its own. The company has promised to release the in-house built community version of Android 5.0 Lollipop OS update by December end.
