OnePlus and Oppo recently announced that they are integrating parts of their research and development within OPLUS to “maximize resources”. Although, OnePlus CEO Pete Lau had confirmed at the time that both OnePlus and Oppo would continue to work independently, with their separate operating systems, in an announcement on Friday, July 2. OnePlus has announced which is merging its Oxygen OS with Oppo’s ColorOS operating system to “enhance the OxygenOS experience.” OnePlus has also promised to release three years or more of Android updates for its smartphones.
According to the OnePlus forum, the change in the operating system will not be noticeable to users as it is happening “behind the scenes”. According to the company, the OnePlus 8 series and newer devices will receive 3 major Android updates and 4 years of security updates. OnePlus Nord and OnePlus Nord / Nord CE will get 2 major Android updates and 3 years of security updates. N-series devices, including N10 and N100, will receive 1 major Android update and 3 years of security updates.
In addition to this, devices prior to the OnePlus 8 series will follow the previous schedule of 2 major Android updates and 3 years of security updates.
According to a statement from OnePlus, “OxygenOS is still the operating system for global OnePlus users as always, but it is now based on a more stable and robust platform. This will apply to new devices in the future, while devices existing ones that are still under scheduled maintenance, it will happen through an OTA update in conjunction with Android 12. “
