OnePlus and Micromax End Legal Battle; OnePlus One Will be Getting Cyanogen OS OTA Updates in India After All
The dispute between OnePlus and Micromax has been in the news for a bit a few months ago and it ended with some cold emails between companies and statements. The culprit was CyanogenMod and the fact that Micromax had an exclusivity to offer it on devices in India, so OnePlus couldn’t sell handsets with this platform on board.
It all resulted into a legal dispute, that has now ended. OnePlus announced today that the battle has ended and the cases have been withdrawn after a mutual consent. The conclusion is that OnePlus One users in India won’t be neglected and they’ll keep getting Cyanogen OS OTA updates in India. This news comes after a report saying that Cyanogen will end its partnership with OnePlus.
It’s not very clear if future OnePlus models that are sold there will be able to come with CyanogenMod or if they’ll go with the OxygenOS platform to stay away from trouble. I can’t figure out how a software maker can suddenly make its product exclusive, after it gave it to so many companies. How much money can Micromax have, after all?
