Any individual who has even considered rooting their Android smartphone must have found out about Cyanogenmod. If not, Cyanogenmod is a “more open version of Android” which gives an additional layer of customisability to the users. Prior just a group of custom ROM cookers, which has now transformed into an company, has officially begun giving software to several smartphone brands including Oppo and Oneplus. Oppo N1 was the first commercial device to accompany Cyanogenmod preinstalled while the second device is the Oneplus One.
As indicated by The Information, Cyanogenmod has purportedly hit an deal with Micromax to fabricate Cyanogenmod based phones. Presently, there is no additional data about the specific device from Micromax which will offer Cyanogenmod yet we won’t be shocked in case that it comes sooner than later. Micromax has long been attempting to greatly improve the high end Android smartphones however they haven’t been exceptionally fruitful as such. With devices like Micromax Canvas Gold A300 and Micromax Canvas Knight A350, it got to be clear that Micromax is producing much better hardware quality however the product has neglected to enhance so this move may provide for them a headstart. Not at all like some product overlays from brands, for example, Samsung, Huawei, LG, and many more, Cyanogen has figured out how to end up so prevalent in light of the fact that it gives important features and customisability without demolishing the performance of the device. Truth be told, it really enhances performance and battery life.
The entire story spins around Cyanogen declining Google SVP Sundar Pichai’s offer for purchasing the company. Kirt Mcmaster, CEO at Cyanogen has informed its financial specialists that they have refused a procurement offer from Google, which is a strong move. As per the report, Cyanogenmod is focussing on acquiring a $1 billion valuation before raising the third round of financing. A year ago, the company brought about $30 million up in funding.
As per a few reports, even Microsoft was in chats with Cyanogenmod for acquiring yet we figure it didn’t appear. We should trust that this move from Cyanogen demonstrates commendable and it figures out how to give a leaner, quicker and more customisable form of Android to every one of us geeks.
