Mobile maker and consumer electronics company OnePlus will be merging its most popular Android operating system OxyGenOS with OPPO’s ColorOS operating system.
“In order to improve efficiency and standardize the software experience across our portfolio, we’re working on integrating the codebase of OxygenOS and ColorOS,” says the company in their forum post.
The company also said, “OxygenOS remains the OS for global OnePlus users as always, but now built on a more stable and stronger platform. This will apply to new devices in the future, while for existing devices that are still within the maintenance schedule, it will occur via an OTA update along with Android 12.”
“We are happy to announce an improved software maintenance schedule for the lifecycle of our open market smartphones:
- Flagship product line (including T / R): The OnePlus 8 series and newer devices will receive 3 major Android updates and 4 years of security updates.
- Nord / Nord CE: The first OnePlus Nord and newer Nord / Nord CE devices will receive 2 major Android updates and 3 years of security updates.
- Nord N series: Starting from N10 and N100, all N series devices will receive 1 major Android update and 3 years of security updates.
OnePlus CEO, Pete Lau also mentioned in his post, “bringing faster and more stable software updates for OnePlus users” with this integration.
Lau had also written on the official forum, “As many of you know, last year I took on some additional responsibilities to oversee product strategy for both OnePlus and OPPO. Since then, we have integrated a number of our teams together with OPPO to better streamline our operation and capitalize on additional shared resources. After seeing the positive impact from those changes, we’ve decided to further integrate our organization with OPPO.”
