OnePlus recently revealed a custom-made version of Android for its One smartphones. OnePlus, a Chinese company, released the One last year, which ran a version of CyanogenMod based on Android 4.4 KitKat. OnePlus decided to go in a different direction with the new ROM, which is based on AOSP Android 5.0 Lollipop. OnePlus is calling the ROM an alpha and says it offers no features other than those included in the base level operating system. OnePlus will add features to the alpha over time until it is a more complete offering. The community preview is free to download, but requires One owners to wipe their phones in order to install it. The OnePlus One is a high-end, low-cost smartphone. Consumers can buy it online directly from OnePlus starting at $299. It is sold unlocked and without a carrier contract.
