Cyanogen claims to launch price-friendly phones very soon!
Google, some time ago came up with a plan. Its mission was to develop and manufacture smartphones with high-end specifications but for low-prices.

Google’s mission went under several changes during its initial stage, but eventually its true sense and purpose was dropped by the company.
The reason behind telling this all is that, Cyanogen Inc., has finally decided to start what Android One failed to achieve.
The company is reportedly working with many different OEMs to manufacture several devices that cost around $75.
This initiative will be presented into target several markets. Cyanogen and team promises that they will manufacture phones with great performance and top-class software support but cheap hardware.
The target phones will be powered by company’s very own CyanogenOS 13. It is based on Android 6.0 Marshmallow.
The OS will be launched in the start of 2016. The ROM version of CyanogenMod 13 will launch soon, most probably by the end of this year.
Similar to the promise made by Android One phones not so long ago, the Cyanogen team claims that they will see the devices through various major Android iterations.
The Software Development Kits(SDKs) will be provided by the management for custom apps which will double-check that there are no overlaps.
The apps will be different by region and OEM. The purpose behind this initiative is that often Google-powered Android devices have sometimes two browsers, calendars, email users etc.
The new system will ensure that there will be no two apps of the same nature. Steve Kondik also promised a flagship coming soon.
Right now, Cyanogen OS powers phones from Wileyfox, Yu, BQ, ZUK and Smartfren.
