Cyanogen 12 Rolls Out On One Plus One Phone First


Last we told you about the One Plus One phone that is seriously a threat to the mainstream Android phones in the world and was branded the ‘flagship killer’ by its makers. It looks as good as it runs, and improvements have been done on it since its inception.


The One Plus One device previously operated on the open-to-developer operating system Cyanogen 11 which was developed for Android KitKat, but as of today will now have the Cyanogen 12 rolled out which is developed for Android 5.0 Lollipop, the latest operating system.

The new Cyanogen 12 update comes with Lollipop’s Material UI (user interface) and also comes with the App Themer that allows users change the theme of their phone to free or paid-for ones. You can preview some of the themes here.

Cyanogen 12 also has its email feature powered by its partner Boxer, which should help users organise their emails much more easily and gives the following benefits, according to the Boxer site:

Customization: Cyanogen users can now set their own left and right swipe actions, notification sounds, account colors for LED email notifications, and create custom inbox folders.

Integrated Task Management: Users can create a task, set a due date, priority level, and even set an assignee right from their inbox.

Integrations: Cyanogen users will be able to access popular productivity apps, including Evernote, Box, Dropbox, Google Drive, and others, right inside their email inbox.

However, don’t expect to find the latest features from the new Lollipop update, the Android 5.1, with this new Cyanogen 12 release, well, atleast not right now.
