Over the past few months, device maintainers new and old have been pushing hard to get support up to par for a wide range of devices. While some flagships (M9/S6/G4, etc) still need more time in the proverbial oven, we’ve seen a large increase in the medium range devices.
Thanks in part to device contributions from Huawei’s team directly, we are now supporting the Honor 4 & 4x (cherry), Ascend Mate 2 (mt2) and Snapto (g620_a2). These devices represent the first set of Huawei devices we’ve supported since CM 7(!) and it’s nice to see the company supporting the community ahead of the rumored Huawei Nexus. We’re expecting good things to come here.
Moto continues to make headway with their budget line – and we’ve now enabled support for both the Moto E (otus) and G (osprey) 2015 variants.
This Chinese OEM has been making waves in Asia. That wave has reached CM with the support of the Mi3w and Mi4 (cancro).
The ‘Powered by Cyanogen’ AndroMax Q (rendang) is an Indonesian device with the unique nature of being the only CDMA Cyanogen Inc device.
The newest OEMs on this list will be seeing their release in Europe soon – and as with all Cyanogen Inc devices – we’ll have sources and nightlies ready to go alongside their delivery.
Oppo has shown their strong community support for nearly two years now, and we are working on their latest R7, R7Plus, and R5 devices (with previous support for the Find 5, N1, Find 7, and N3), thanks in large part to their device donations. Look for the latest waves of Oppo devices to hit CM sources and downloads soon.
Samsung, HTC & LG
These perennials have more device variants than we can count, but we can knock a couple off the list with support for the Korean G3 (f400), M8 Dual Sim (m8d), Galaxy S5 variants of Japan/China (kltekdi/kltechn) and the S5 Duos (klteduos/klteduoschn).
With more to come and others in the wings (eg. Nvidia Shield tablet), we’re glad to welcome our newest team members and devices. If you are working on a port that you’d like to see join the official roster, checkout our wiki page on submission guidelines.

PS. Have you seen the new contributors screen in your ‘About Phone’? It takes an army to support the combined 200+ devices receiving CM 11, 12.0 and 12.1.
