    Huawei is in the news as it has been cut off from supply but, given Trump's recent far-reaching executive order, do we know if Oneplus are in the firing line? I've been looking to upgrade and I've ruled out a Oneplus phone due to the uncertainty.

    BBK Electronics own Oneplus,Oppo,Vivo and Realme. They actually have probably have as much share as a company as Huawei. Not sure why you should rule them out,especially since the distro of Android they ship with is this:

    The base version is open source.

    It won't, the concern with Huawei is to do with the infrastructure side rather than phones, and OnePlus and its parent companies aren't involved in that.

    In any event, any phone that's been released before any sanctions come into effect will be unaffected, so you can happily buy e.g. a OnePlus Nord without risks.

    Yeah the side-effect of harming Huawei's phone business was a side effect of the shenanigans, not a cause. I'm sure the protectionists see it as a convenient one though given it removes one of Apple's biggest competitors. The irony being Apple stuff is still made in China...

    Part of me has wondered whether Huawei could spin-off their phone business in some way to avoid the sanctions, but I know it's not necessarily that simple. It's a real shame to lose a good competitor in the market; they offered a pleasant change from the status quo of needlessly hamstrung and overpriced 'mid-range' devices.

    Trump is not looking for win-win kind of business, his whole career he used force, not sure if it works this time.

    Cyanogen closed like 4 years ago, as that page details. Anything besides the original Oneplus One never ran Cyanogen, and even that got updated to remove it. They all run https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/OxygenOS (which is... partially OSS)
