OnePlus announced its own Android 5.0 ROM called OxygenOS last week and told us to wait for more details on Feb. 12. Today, the company has decided to introduce the world to its new crew which will be responsible for the development of the ROM and every future iteration of Android ROMs that OnePlus will come up with.
There are some familiar faces here with some of the Paranoid Android members included in the team. OnePlus mentions that “50 more engineers and testers working behind the scenes”, so it’s an extensive list of people working for the company’s latest ROM.
The OxygenOS ROM took birth after OnePlus had a fall out with the Cyanogen OS team which is currently responsible for the ROMs running on the OnePlus One.
Users were a little hesitant to let go of CyanogenMod in favor of something new like OxygenOS, but knowing that the team includes the co-founder and developers from Paranoid Android, OnePlus One owners can breathe a sigh of relief now.
OnePlus mentions that it will wait for the ROM to be perfectly functional before making it available for the public, which might be a subtle way of telling customers that it might take a while before the ROM is ready.
