The permanent price cut to the OnePlus One to $250 has been met with a positive response, but users are now complaining about the lack of an Android 5.1 update or even updates to OxygenOS and CM12 in general.
Back in March, the Chinese manufacturer announced a delay of its own OxygenOS operating system. Unfortunately for users, they will have to wait even longer until at least the launch of the OnePlus 2 in Q3 of this year. The company claims that its entire team is hard at work on the successor to imply that the first OnePlus One is on the backburner for now. OxygenOS will be the default software on the OnePlus 2 and it's unsurprising that the team is working hard to make the launch as smooth as possible.
For users running CM12 instead of stock, however, the Android 5.1 update is "on its way" with a preview build completed for internal testing. Amongst other smaller bug fixes, the update will supposedly address touchscreen issues that some users may have been experiencing on the OnePlus One. Exactly how soon this OTA will be available is anyone's guess.
