Cyanogen recently gave itself a rebrand, and now the company has come out to share the new boot animation shipping with its upcoming Cyanogen OS 12. It’s definitely sporting the company’s slick new logo which, according to Cyanogen, “celebrates space, with minimal letterforms that don’t quite connect, giving the logo a sense of motion and a feeling of inherent energy.”

The latest version of the company’s partially-proprietary operating system is expected to land at some point in the coming weeks, and recent reports (via ZDNet, GreenBot) have said that it will also be bringing on Boxer as its default email client. This is notably a very bold move away from the Gmail client that typically ships with Android, symbolic of Cyanogen’s goal to “steal” the ubiquitous mobile OS from Google.

Of course, first up to get the update will be two phones from the company’s commercial partners, the OnePlus One and Yureka Yu. Bootloader firmware is currently being finished up and the update is reportedly going through the final stages of quality assurance, so it’s still going to be a little while until it hits these devices. Until then, replay the below video repeatedly to stay excited.
