Cyanogen Inc, a leading mobile OS company, has announced an exclusive partnership in India with Micromax Informatics, the largest Indian mobile brand.

The arrangement highlights the significance of the software-hardware partnership and the shared vision of delivering a whole new class of user-focused mobile device experiences that will immensely benefit the end user. Micromax has announced a new Internet brand YU, which is slated to announce its first device on Cyanogen OS. Cyanogen’s exclusive deal also means that Cyanogen OS will not support any other devices shipping in India with future updates including Lollipop.

The first device from YU slated to be announced in December will also be the first to launch with Cyanogen’s new Themes app, supported by a powerful theming engine that will enable deep levels of UI personalization, and Nextbit’s Baton, a revolutionary cloud-syncing app service.
