OnePlus and Micromax End Legal Battle Over Cyanogen OS


OnePlus on Friday reported that all the legal matters with Micromax in India have been determined and the cases were withdrawn through common assent. This will imply that all of the OnePlus One phone users in India will now be receiving Cyanogen OS OTA (over-the-air) upgrades the same as different markets.

The Chinese cell phone producer entered the Indian market before the end of last year and was soon hit by a legitimate obstacle in light of Micromax’s plea, which owned the exclusive rights to Cyanogen OS in India. The plea further drove Cyanogen to clarify that it won’t offer OTA upgrades to OnePlus One cell phones sold in India, and Micromax was being compensated with a temporary boycott on the OnePlus One handsets in the nation. Be that as it may, the court later lifted the boycott of OnePlus One phones.

Vikas Agarwal, General Manager-India, OnePlus released a press statement that read, “OnePlus remains vindicated of the recent trials and tribulations that have surrounded the company due to legal tussle with Micromax over exclusivity on CyanogenOS. We are happy to confirm that all ‘OnePlus One’ users in India will continue to receive OTA updates from Cyanogen in-line with our users in markets around of the world.”
