Cyanogen wants to get in on the Mobile World Congress 2015 news cycle as well which is why the company has made a couple of announcements of its own. First the company showed off its new brand identity which basically brings a new website and a new logo. It also announced a partnership with Qualcomm which will smooth the way for CyanogenOS to find its way to more mobile devices.

You can see the new logo posted above, it constitutes part of Cyanogen’s new brand identity, as well as the new website at The new website has an updated theme and it no longer sports the hexagon logo that was around for over a year. Cyanogen says the new brand identity is supposed to reflect the openness of Android.

The partnership with Qualcomm is much more substantial as it will bring support for CyanogenOS features and UI elements in the upcoming release of the Qualcomm Reference Design.

Now this doesn’t have a direct impact on consumers since QRD is meant for OEMs but it basically means that device manufacturers will be able to implement Cyanogen’s software much faster on devices that have select Qualcomm chips, the Snapdragon 200, 400 and 600 series to be precise.

Cyanogen support in QRD is expected to roll out next month.
