The move was entirely expected, especially since OnePlus has already begun using their own OxygenOS operating system on their devices.
Cyanogen's Steve Kondik says the two companies had completely different visions and this caused clashes between employees and philosophies. "That's probably the last you will see from that partnership. Two new companies are trying to do crazy stuff, a lot of people collide," added Kondik.
CEO Kirt McMaster, never one to mince words, says OnePlus used Cyanogen's brand to sell hardware before moving on, essentially using the company, but he did wish OnePlus the best in the future.
So what is Cyanogen looking to do now? New partners, of course. "OnePlus shipped reasonable volume, but nothing compared to what some of these other partners can ship...we are working with partners that can scale much quicker," noted McMaster.
