Cyanogen has been gettin’ busy lately after a somewhat eventful 2015. While it was on and then off with OnePlus, it has picked up some carriage agreements with a few manufacturers. Just this week, the software platform made it onto a major carrier in Spain with the introduction of the BQ Aquaris X5.

And the company backing a derivative of one of the most popular Android forks is just about ready to kick off 2016 with a bang. The Cyanogenmod community currently has a strong presence at the Big Android BBQ in Amsterdam right now and it has outlined a path towards its spread through the low-end market.

With the hardware partners Cyanogen currently has, it seems appropriate that the low-end is what it’s targeting first before that flagship comes around. It’s also nice to be reassured of a clean and streamlined operating system.

Speaking of that operating system, according to the CyanogenMod twitter account, we might be able to see CyanogenMod 13 for Christmas — it could be a neat surprise under the tree for developers and users. As a reminder, CM13 is supposed to be based off of Android 6.0. By that ETA point, it would be just short of three months after final release of Marshmallow, which would be well ahead of expectations.
