Hero 2 + with CyanogenOS Will Not

On the occasion of the MWC 2015, Alcatel had announced plans to sell a version of its Cyanogen Hero2 +smartphones interesting that with the OS CyanogenOS would become even more fascinating. Unfortunately in the last hours the two companies together, they canceled the project stating that there were some issues with Android 5.1 and saw that the intention was to market a product with the most advanced software, so the project was abandoned.

In the statement you mention however of a willingness to continue the collaboration, creating a new product CyanogenOS and able to better support this firmware. Maybe you will come out directly with Android M in 2016.

ALCATEL ONETOUCH and Cyanogen, Inc. have made a mutual decision to forgo the release of the HERO 2+. At its announcement, the goal of bringing this device to market was to offer the most advanced hardware and software at an affordable price. The bar was set high and unfortunately the device does not have a clear Android 5.1 upgrade path. We therefore are committing to refocus our joint efforts on a next-generation product that can exceed the expectations of end users. Our teams remain dedicated to releasing an ALCATEL ONETOUCH device powered by Cyanogen OS, and are looking to share an update when we have more details to share.
