OnePlus One to get Android Lollipop next month , comes in two flavors

OnePlus - a company that made headlines last year with its OnePlus One handset is now announcing plans to dish out Android 5.0 to their handsets . The update , which looks to be a bit late by flagship update standards is the result of "proprietary drivers, code, QA [and] certifications." . Originally ,OnePlus promised a 90 day update promise but things started to go south after Cyanogen - Oneplus'  main software provider , ditched Oneplus and sold off exclusive rights to Micromax in India ,and  as a result Indian OnePlus users will not receive direct updates as all update rights belong to the said Indian OEM . OnePlus - in a attempt to slowly get away from its Cyanogen alliance ,started to work on its custom "Oxygen OS" ROM which is said to be ready next month for users (who won't get cyanogenmod in India )and around the world , Cyanogen -  tied to a two year update contract during the OnePlus one's conception is also said to issue Cyanogenmod 12S (special build for the OnePlus) next month so users will have a freedom of choice in selecting a either Oxygen OS (Andorid 5.0) or Cyanogenmod 12S (Also Android 5.0) for their devices .
