April 23rd will launch the first launch anniversary of the OnePlus ‘Flagship Killer’ One smartphone. Despite its age in the market, the phone continues to receive updates.

OnePlus announced via its forums that the company will be seeding the OTA update to Android 5.0 Lollipop based OxygenOS for the OnePlus One before 27th March, i.e., 9 days from now. Not only that, OnePlus also note that CyanogenMod 12S for the phone (based on Lollipop) will too come this month, 3 days after the last date for the OxygenOS OTA, i.e., on March 30th.

Admittedly, it took a little more time than we had planned, but we only release updates that we are proud of; that means refusing to take shortcuts or deliver sub-par experiences.

The OnePlus One (international variant) was announced with Android KitKat overlaid with popular 3rd party ROM CyanogenMod 11S. About the jump to Android 5.0 Lollipop, the company seems pretty serious; they’re promising to give away 5 OnePlus One phones (for all its worth) if either of the two deadlines are missed.
