Exclusive: CM-powered Beast To Steal The Nexus 5's Thunder

By 03:21 Sun, 18 Jul 2021 Comments

We've received a report that Mr. Cyanogen himself, Steve Kondik, has been working with a hardware partner on a handset that will run his popular Android Read-Only Memory (ROM) directly out of box. Not only that, but its set to pack a recent Snapdragon 8974AC chipset, with a quad-core Central Processing Units (CPU) running at the unprecedented 2.5 GHz.

Given CyanogenMod's recent hitale with Oppo in the form of a limited edition N1 flagship with CyanogenMod out of box, it doesn't hold much figuring out that the hardware partner will be Oppo itself. In fact, Steve Kondik was recently seen with Oppo's Vice President Pete Lau on Lau's Google+ profile, with Lau "look[ing] forward to what's coming."

Our trustworthy source indicates the upcoming flagship will be able to match the LG Nexus 5 in terms of pricing, and is set to run CyanogenMod correct out of box. Kondik and the CM team are also expected to introduce recent software content with the recent device. Whether it'll be exclusive to this handset is still a mystery, though.

We've no word yet on expected availability.
