Following last month’s statement that OnePlus was integrating with Oppo, effectively transforming into a sub-brand of the phone manufacturer, the association investigated Friday that it’s similarly merging OxygenOS with Oppo’s ColorOS operating system (through 9to5Google).
The two associations’ software will remain independent and continue serving their individual regions (OxygenOS for OnePlus phones around the world, ColorOS on OnePlus and Oppo contraptions in China) notwithstanding share an average codebase, which OnePlus says should standardize its software experience and smooth out the headway communication for future OxygenOS updates. OnePlus says the change will in like manner license the association to guarantee better Android update support going on, something Samsung has also endeavored to upgrade over the two or three years. OnePlus fans out the future for updates as follows:
- Flagship phones including the T and R models get three huge Android updates and four years of security updates.
- Nord and Nord CE phones get two huge Android updates and three years of security updates.
- Nord N phones will get one huge Android update and three years of security updates.
- OnePlus limits those update commitments to the OnePlus 8 and up, so more settled OnePlus devices will be in a difficult situation.
As the ensuing stage in whatever is going on with OnePlus, Oppo, and the more broad BBK Electronics umbrella, merging the associations’ software on the backend has all the earmarks of being a net positive for OnePlus users. How independent OnePlus is since it’s “consolidated” gives off an impression of being likely be that as it may foggy as when it would have been independent, moved by BBK, and obviously offering a couple of areas to Oppo, yet to the extent that phones are supported, it preferably shouldn’t have any effect.
