Currently the Chinese version of the OnePlus One comes with Oppo’s ColorOS, while the international model has CyanogenMod as standard. The development of their own ROM would help the brand to further distance themselves from Oppo, and would allow them more freedom. It is unclear if the new ROM would see the end of CyanogenMod for future OnePlus devices.
The interview goes on to say that OnePlus have managed to be profitable this year, with internatoinal daily phone sales counting in the 1000’s.
