OxygenOS logo and boot screen look amazingly minimalist
In case you’re not familiar with the name OxygenOS, you should know that it is the latest custom ROM in the works from the company behind the OnePlus One flagship killer launched last year. The Chinese company organized a contest in December 2014 to try and find a name for the new custom ROM they were working on, after Cyanogen and OnePlus parted ways. The name OxygenOS was finally chosen from among submissions (although some are doubtful that the winner who suggested isn’t fabricated by the company).
Many were delighted about the OxygenOS name and said that it suits OnePlus as it is a refreshing name that reflects the company’s refreshing policy of making cheap, high-end devices available world-wide. Now OnePlus promised that we would find out more about OxygenOS on February 12, when they will disclose the UI and elements that will be introduced in the OS, adding that OxygenOS will probably be the most customizable and open operating systems on the market this year.
OxygenOS will be built on Android, naturally, so we expect traces of Android 5.0 Lollipop to be visible, as well as features like the revamped notifications system. Forum members have come up with the best suggestions ever when it comes to how OxygenOS should look like, even though they weren’t asked to. Users published one of the greatest logos you could image and a boot animation that feels like Material Design with a twist.
Even though the logo and the boot animation are just concepts at the moment, we wouldn’t be surprised if OnePlus approached the users who made them and actually make the OxygenOS logo and boot animation official ones for the new custom ROM. We certainly like what Arun Raj and 4nlimited3edition have done and we hope that these will be the ones OnePlus will consider using in their custom ROM, unless they have something better already lined up. You can get the boot animation from here, and you can check it out in the video below.
