OnePlus will merge the Oxygen OS operating system with Color OS of Oppo to form a new “unified and updated global operating system”. In a recent press conference, the company confirmed that its next flagship launch in the first half of 2022, presumably OnePlus 10, will be the first phone to feature this integrated operating system.
OnePlus 10 will debut with a new unified operating system born from the combination of Color OS and Oxygen OS
“Oxygen OS and Color OS completed a codebase integration in June of this year. This is the start of work to create a unified operating system experience for OnePlus and Oppo users. The unified operating system experience will be launched first on the 2022 flagship and then on all devices globally with the main Android update in 2022 ″, said the CEO of OnePlus Pete Lau in the briefing.
The latest OnePlus blog post confirms more or less that the so-called “unified” operating system will completely replace Oxygen OS, at least on flagship phones. Android Authority asked OnePlus if the operating system would have a new name, but it has not received a response from the company.
“I believe the unified OS will retain the Oxygen OS DNA that many of you love so much, while delivering an updated overall experience. And of course, OnePlus has a unique group of users, so we will customize the unified operating system specifically for OnePlus devices to make sure it meets your expectations, ”the executive wrote in the blog post. For OnePlus users, therefore, not much will change from an experience point of view. Indeed, according to the CEO, you will only see improvements.
Which smartphones will receive the new operating system?
In addition to its next flagship phone, OnePlus has confirmed that the new unified operating system will be available on the OnePlus 8 series. Logically, it should also arrive at the OnePlus 9 flagships. Unfortunately it is not yet known whether the new unified operating system will also arrive on the devices of the OnePlus Nord or R series. The latter may still receive the update, but we doubt that it will arrive for the first. smartphone. Also Oppo flagships launched in 2022 they should include the new operating system.
