Looks like Cyanogen’s relationship with Micromax is going way beyond just building the Themes app for them. Cyanogen today announced an exclusive partnership with Micromax for its YU brand of devices, which will launch next month.

As a part of the partnership, Cyanogen will only support Micromax s forthcoming Yu series of smartphones.

While this partnership certainly gives Micromax an edge over its competitors, there is no clarity as far as the OnePlus One is concerned. The flagship killer, which runs on CyanogenMod ROM CM11s, was announced in India earlier this week, and will go on sale in India on December 2.

As mentioned above, the first YU device is slated to be announced in December and will also be the first to launch with Cyanogen s new Themes app. This device, with the Cyanogen OS will enable UI personalization and will also offer Nextbit’s Baton cloud syncing app service.
