CyanogenMod adds support for Huawei, Motorola smartphones

Startup Cyanogen (a 2015 Fierce 15 winner) is adding support for several Huawei, Motorola Mobility and Xiaomi smartphones for its CyanogenMod, an open-source custom Android-based operating system, which it says offers OEMs and carriers more flexibility than stock Android software. Cyanogen said it now supports both the 2015 Motorola Moto E and G, Xiaomi's Mi3w and Mi4 handsets and Huawei's Honor 4 & 4x, Ascend Mate 2 and Snapto. Cyanogen is also supporting a new handset from up-and-coming European smartphone maker WileyFox and several phones form HTC, LG Electronics and Samsung Electronics. 

Cyanogen offers wireless carriers, smartphone manufacturers and third-party app developers the ability to deeply integrate their services into the Cyanogen OS -- and to share in any resulting app installs or sale of software and services to users. The company received $80 million in new funding in March. Article
