    Might be.. at least not from cyanogen as Micromax has exclusive rights in India.

    It's true for now.
    But you can always manually flash new updated version.

    Devices bought in India (so trough amazon.in) will not recieve over the air updates from Cyanogenmod. it is possible though to manually install these after unlocking you phone and flashing a custom recovery.

    If and when Oneplus' own rom comes out i'm pretty sure it will be available trough an OTA update.

    In all the years that i have owned a smart phone, have i heard such an obsession with the word update.
    Unless its a OS upgrade, updates are not a good thing it usually means the device has an issues. You dont see the big player sending out updates like OP have.
    CM have really had to earn their corn, no wonder they want out.
    I would rather have a device with little or no issue than be flooded with updates to fix them.More updates usually means more bugs.

    OTA updates go by IMEI numbers, this would mean your device is on the indian list. oneplus wont push updates for CM to your device, unless they make some kind of compromise with Cyanogen and Micromax.

    So if we for some reason flash Android onto OPO, will we get Android updates?

    If you do not get OTA updates does not mean you have been shortchanged.Initial updates are prone to bugs . Then updates are issued to correct these. As of now the phone is without hangups , it is my belief that by the time a stable update is available the issue would have been resolved between One Plus One and cyanogenmod.Either the device will get OTA updates for cyanogenmod or One Plus One will offer a better OS which will beat cyanogenmod itself. Not to worry you will be awinner anyway. Enjoy the product as of now there is nothing better in the market compared to this
