About two months ago, OxygenOS was introduced to OnePlus One owners. The company set out to deliver quick updates with an operating system that is “light and essential with subtle, useful features” based on Android 5.0 Lollipop. Now it is June and OxygenOS is already outdated. Guess what? It will stay that way for the foreseeable future.
Closely following the release of its 64GB Sandstone Black variant, OnePlus has today launched the 16GB Silk White model of its flagship smartphone, the One, in India. The handset is available to purchase exclusively through Amazon India for Rs 18,999 ($305), providing the customer has already obtained an invite.

An update for the OnePlus One is rolling out today, but don’t get too excited, though, as we’re not looking at Android 5.0 Lollipop just yet. Instead, it’s the CyanogenMod 11S upgrade, which brings numerous fixes and improvements, together with support for SwiftKey and MaxxAudio.
Tuesday might be the most boring day of the week for most people. There’s no joke to make about Tuesday, and it’s far enough away from the weekend that nothing exciting ever really happens. OnePlus is going to shake that up in 2015, though, as they’ll let you pick up a OnePlus One, completely invite free, on Tuesdays. Why Tuesday? Who knows.
OnePlus has been trying to figure out the best way to get the device into the hands of as many people as possible without them having to shell out extra cash for an invite or post stupid pictures to a forum, and this one seems like it might be the most successful. The company doesn’t plan on ditching its invite system completely, but at least on one day of the week you won’t have to worry about it. Read more

OnePlus has just kicked off its second no invite necessary promotion of the year and this time it’s entitled “The Gift of One”, and is targeted at residents in the United States who are eager to get their hands on the One, but haven’t yet had the good fortune to obtain an invitation. Starting today, the handset is available for anyone to order on the OnePlus website.
Back in September, OnePlus let slip to supporters during a Reddit “Ask Me Anything” discussion that it was planning to launch a second generation variant of its incredibly-popular flagship smartphone, the One, in 2015.
Earlier today, OnePlus director Carl Pei disclosed that the upcoming handset is going to be called the “OnePlus Two” and will officially replace the One. It’s expected to go on sale in “Q2 or Q3 of next year” and will feature some “surprises” when it comes to hardware.
OnePlus has today published details of an update it’s in the process of rolling out to all variants of its flagship smartphone, the One, currently situated in the United States. Unfortunately, the upgrade doesn’t bring much to the table with regards to new features, but it does include a handful of bug fixes, stability improvements, speed optimizations and an important security patch.
Hit the break for the full changelog.
