OnePlus 2 might get official CyanogenMod ROM soon

The OnePlus One was one of the most revered smartphones of the modding community, but the 2 handset failed to match that owing to the fact that it ran Oxygen OS rather than Cyanogen. Well, the folks over at CyanogenMod are seemingly looking to change that by doling out an official version of their ROM for this particular device.

The OnePlus 2 might very well be seen getting CyanogenMod soon. And that’s not the only good news; along with the Android 5.1.1 Lollipop-based CM 12.2 software, the Android 6.0 Marshmallow-based CM 13 version too could be making its way into the device.

As revealed by GSM Arena, mentions of both these ROMs have been found on the CyanogenMod official GitHub repository, but they are still to be made available for download at the moment. It must be noted that some XDA developers have already made unofficial ports of the software for the 2 handset.

However, these versions don’t benefit from the community support and quality control which is one of the main reasons to look forward to the official releases. Following a spat with Cyanogen Inc. last year, OnePlus was abandoned as its partner leading to the Chinese company coming up with its own ROM named Oxygen OS.

A neat look at the key specs of the OnePlus 2:

– Display: 5.5-inch, 1080p full HD
– OS: Oxygen OS
– Memory: 3GB/4GB RAM, 16GB/64GB storage (non-expandable)
– CPU: 1.8GHz octa core Snapdragon 810 (64-bit)
– Cameras: 13MP rear, 5MP front
– Battery: 3300mAh
– Size: 151.8 x 74.9 x 9.85mm
– Weight: 175gms
– Connectivity: Dual SIM, 4G LTE, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS, USB Type-C

We’ll keep digging for more news about the CyanogenMod release for the OnePlus 2 smartphone; so stay tuned for additional information on the matter.
