The legal battle between OnePlus and Micromax has finally comes to an end. This results in OnePlus One getting support from Cyanogen in India.
Micromax entered an exclusive agreement with Cyanogen in India, which led to the formation of YU. Cyanogen ditched OnePlus before the launch of ‘One’. This exclusive deal led to OnePlus One sales being stopped in India. However, this came to an end when the court rejected YU’s plea and OnePlus One were available again. The case has finally been completely settled after five months.
OnePlus Blog India said,
“The month of December last year was a momentous occasion for the OnePlus family. We launched our flagship phone, the “OnePlus One” much to the delight of our consumers here in India. And then we unexpectedly got hit by a legal snag! For reasons that were made public earlier, we had to take a legal recourse to protect our rights in light of the proceedings initiated by Micromax.
Five months hence, we are happy to confirm today that all legal proceedings have been resolved and the cases have been withdrawn through mutual consent. We hate donning suits and ties anyways. To make things sweeter, we would like to re-assure our customers and fans in India that our flagship phone, the “OnePlus One” will continue to receive OTA updates from Cyanogen in-line with our users in markets around the world.”
Good news for the Indian OnePlus One customers as both the companies bury the hatchet. Cyanogen will support their flagship smartphone with OTA updates for two years. However, Cyanogen has broken up with OnePlus. We will not see any future association and the OnePlus 2 will come with the in-house OxygenOS.
