As promised back in February, OnePlus has released their replacement for the CyanogenMod OS: Oxygen OS for the OnePlus One. OxygenOS is a rather light take on Android 5.0.2 Lollipop, keeping with the standards of Material Design.

Here's what you can expect from OxygenOS on top of the standards of Lollipop:

  • Gestures: Several original OnePlus features have been built right into OxygenOS, including screen-off gestures like double-tap to wake, music controls, and shortcuts for the camera and flashlight.
  • Customization: With customizable lockscreen wallpapers and the ability to switch between hardware and software navigation keys, OxygenOS allows you to make your phone distinctly yours.
  • Quick Settings: With our new quick settings feature, tiles can be added, removed, and re-organized with the click of a button, and it blends beautifully right into the notification tray's UI. It just makes sense.

The release of OxygenOS comes about a week after the first announced and since delayed release date, though given how small of a team they're working with, it's not the worst thing ever. CyanogenMod 12 for the OnePlus One is still in testing, despite the public split between Cyanogen and OnePlus, so at least you'll have options.
