The dust has barely settled after the bombshell announcement that Cyanogen Inc. quietly signed an exclusive deal with OEM Micromax in India. That left the OnePlus One with an uncertain future in India without a software partner, and now things are getting even worse. The OnePlus One has been banned in India after legal action by Micromax.
Micromax—which plans to launch its YU brand with Cyanogen soon—has gone to the Delhi High Court to allege OnePlus is infringing on it...
Xiaomi has confirmed that it will suspend sales in India following the ban from the New Delhi High Court. The Chinese smartphone maker had received a court order yesterday for infringing on Ericsson’s Standard Essential Patents (SEPs).

The original post was vague in the language it used, which is why we asked Cyanogen Inc. for additional information. We were told by Cyanogen Inc. that "all devices we are shipped on" would get updates, but the OPO is available from Amazon India and initial units are shipping with CM. So the official position seems to directly contradict what we were told. OnePlus will switch to its own custom OS later, and the Amazon page does seem to have been scrubbed of all official me...

OnePlus is set to make their first foray into India soon, an emerging market where many an OEM is staking claim.
