The OnePlus One smartphone, a handset that actually requires you to be in possession of an invitation before you can actually make a purchase, has apparently seen its launch delayed due to an OpenSSL bug that is touted to be a whole lot more serious than originally expected. The folks over at Cyanogen Mod have decided to throw in a bug fix for the initially launched version of the smartphone, and this would translate to the requirement for an entirely new certification where its firmware is concerned.
Ciwrl from Cyanogen Mod has mentioned on Reddit that “We believe the security benefits outweigh the delay.” I suppose good things come to those who wait, and exercising a little bit more patience would go a long way in this matter. After all, no one would like to receive a handset with gimped software on it, would they?
This particular delay will no doubt be grounds for disappointed OnePlus One buyers, especially those who love being on the cutting edge of technology all the time. As at press time, there is no possible manner to grasp our fingers around a shipping date. Just how disappointed are you with this latest development concerning the OnePlus One handset?
