Cyanogen explains update policy for OnePlus One in India

There are a ton of reasons to love the OnePlus One, starting with its price tag. Moving that specific reason aside, another big reason is that the device runs a pre-installed version of CyanogenMod, or should we say, as long as you don’t live in India. Certain exclusive deals force OnePlus to sell this device with its custom version of Android 5.0 Lollipop, though if your device already runs CyanogenMod, there’s a good chance that you’re in luck.

Cyanogen Inc has just taken the time to explain how its policies will work in India, and things might get lucky for a few. If you purchase the international variant of the OnePlus One, your device is elligible to run CyanogenMod, in addition to receive updates for it. The problem is that if you purchase the device locally, you’ll sadly be out of luck if this is a specific feature that matters to you.

At this point it’s difficult to determine if OnePlus’ version of Android 5.0 Lollipop will give you a better experience than using CyanogenMod, but we’d love to hear your experiences.
