Micromax, the domestic brand, has raised a complaint with the high court pointing the violation of their country-specific agreement with Cynogen by OnePlus. Micromax has agreed that their YU brand of devices will feature the mentioned operating system. According to them, OnePlus has infringed their exclusive rights with Cynogen.

OnePlus learnt about the deal between Cynogen and Micromax only a week before their phones were released in India and it is believed that the company is working on its own ROM to replace Cynogen as soon as possible.

According to some reports, OnePlus will only be allowed to sell its existing stock in India and thereafter it can only sell compliant devices.

The Delhi HC has stated that OnePlus may sue Cynogen in California where an agreement between the two companies was signed.

India is definitely an emerging market for smartphones, with more and more companies targeting it. With ban on Xiaomi and OnePlus, Indian users are finding it difficult to get their hands on trending phones.
