After hosting a public contest, OnePlus has decided on an official name for its upcoming custom ROM, set to be available for OnePlus users in the near future. The name chosen by the team, entered by a forum member, is OxygenOS.
OnePlus’ explanation for this decision was rather deep, with the company stating, “Oxygen is all around us. It’s part of us and everything we do.
