Five months after hitting a legal snag for shipping phones loaded with CyanogenOS, smartphone maker OnePlus has announced that the case between it and Micromax has been resolved.
The case that was being fought in the Delhi High Court has been withdrawn through mutual consent. Further, Indian customers will continue to receive OTA updates from Cyanogen.
“OnePlus remains vindicated of the recent trials and tribulations that has surrounded the company due to legal tussle with Micromax over exclusivity on CyanogenOS,” said Vikas Agarwal, GM – India, OnePlus.
While the fight over the exclusivity of using CyanogenOS on devices in India between OnePlus and Micromax is over, Cyanogen recently announced that it has severed ties with OnePlus.
In all probability, the upcoming OnePlus 2 and other devices from the upstart hardware company won’t come preloaded with Cyanogen-made software, but its own Oxygen OS.
The rift between the two companies first showed during the OnePlus – Micromax trial in India, with Cyanogen founder Steve Kondik saying the two companies had different software goals.
