OnePlus, the new company started by people from Oppo, announces that they partners with CyanogenMod[1] and the first phone from the new collaboration will be available in the first half of this year.

It will ship with a specially designed version of CyanogenMod with some new elements and features. They are actually developing a custom version of CyanogenMod with special features and tweaks.

The new OnePlus phone will combine the best hardware with the best software, says OnePlus.

“What’s coming is one of the most popular mobile operating systems specifically developed for the best hardware, with a unique twist. The smartphone industry is ripe for disruption, and 2014 should prove to be a huge year for the future of the market.”

“Upon hearing Pete’s vision for OnePlus, it was clear we had found the right partner. By combining our software expertise with Pete’s background in hardware and design, we’ll develop a phone that will exceed both of our expectations.”

The first phone will be called OnePlus One. It will launch in selected markets only and maybe globally later.

Too bad it will only be available in selected markets then.. That probably means not here in Sweden where I live.
