Commenting on the company’s tie up with OnePlus, Cyanogen CEO Kirt McMaster said, “Without Cyanogen, OnePlus would have sold like one device in international markets. Essentially they built their brand on the back of Cyanogen.”
Being an US-based company, Cyanogen offers an alternative version of Android ROM free of many restrictions that Google has subtly incorported, will however continue supporting OnePlus phones that run its OS.
Finally, Cyanogen is apparently looking to partner with those Chinese brands that have global market intention. “It’s a great way for them to build some identity outside of China using a brand that’s already reasonably well known,” McMaster said.
