OxygenOS – I’m excited about this
Over on the OnePlus forums they have given us more information about their in-house ROM for the OnePlus One, OxygenOS.
They have assembled a fantastic team to develop it (a lot from Paranoid Android) and they show a lot of promise:
Head of Mobile Product:
Helen (Canada): Helen worked as a software development engineer and program manager at Microsoft before moving on to various startups in the Seattle area. We are proud to have Helen leading and coordinating our OxygenOS team.
Android Technical Lead:
Aaron (USA): Creating his own custom Android ROM “cookies&cream” for the Nexus 7 at the age of 18, Aaron went on to help co-found Paranoid Android in 2012, serving as a team leader and software architect. Aaron has also worked for Intel, assisting the delivery of their Android Lollipop OTA. We are ecstatic to have him and his wealth of experience leading our team of developers.
Arz (India): At only 19 years of age, Arz has extensive experience in graphic design and possesses in-depth knowledge of Android theming, including UI frameworks. Creating some of the most popular themes on the Google Play store, Arz is the lead designer at Paranoid Android and the lead UI/UX designer for OxygenOS.
Android Development Team:
Carlo (Italy): Former medical student turned Android hacker. With years of experience as a Android engineer, Carlo currently contributes to Paranoid Android as a maker of awesome things.
Hieu (Canada): As a software architect at Paranoid Android, Hieu’s specialties include OS optimizations and power management. All-around “hardware enabler,” there is nothing Hieu can’t fix.
Jesús (Colombia): Creating several notable Android applications, Jesús is an independent developer and co-founder at Paranoid Android. He’s primarily working on an OxygenOS headline feature (which will be revealed soon)!
Karim (Lebanon): Karim is an entrepreneur and former software development intern at Google. He is the resident app developer on the OxygenOS team.
Yamil (Spain): Yamil is the “master of enterprise code,” bringing a new perspective to the startup space. He is responsible for the OxygenOS recovery module.
Of course, we have over 50 more engineers and testers working behind the scenes, and we couldn’t be happier to welcome each and every one of them to the OnePlus family.
I, personally, can’t wait for this to be released. I’m also intrigued by the as yet unannounced unique headline feature…
