Indian OnePlus One users are expectant to receive the Android 5.0 Lollipop-based CM12S update over-the-air (OTA), with the rollout of the last Cyanogen OS update (CM11S 05Q) also made available in that manner in the country, but no official word has been provided thus far confirming this.
This changed earlier this week however, when OnePlus Co-Founder Carl Pei responded to a user query on Twitter to confirm that OnePlus One (Review | Pictures) smartphone users in India will receive the much-awaited CM12S update over-the-air.
Beyond the Lollipop-based CM12S update however, things still remain dicey for Indian users of the OnePlus One smartphone, with the availability of Cyanogen OS updates in India the biggest bone of contention between Micromax subsidiary Yu Televentures and OnePlus. Micromax's Yu brand has in the past claimed "exclusive OTA firmware updates and support in India" - but is yet to make good on it, much to the delight of OnePlus One users in India.
OnePlus earlier this month provided deadlines for the rollout of the promised Lollipop updates for its One smartphone, promising the CM12S-based build along with the first stable build of the firm's own OxygenOS before the end of the month.
The Chinese smartphone manufacturer says the Lollipop-based Cyanogen OS build will be released on or before March 30 as an OTA update, while the OxygenOS build will be released on or before March 27 as a ROM download.
OnePlus says to prove its commitment, it will give away five 64GB OnePlus One smartphones if it misses either one of the deadlines - users have to reply to the announcement on the announcement post to be eligible to receive a handset
