After Oppo took over OnePlus this year, and the OxygenOS codebase merged with ColorOS, OnePlus is finally going to complete the merging by next year. As of now, the name of the new merged OS isn’t announced but will be soon. Revealed by Pete Lau in a blog post, he shares some interesting changes in the new upcoming OS and the OnePlus lineup.
OxygenOS and ColorOS unification to complete next year.
As stated by Lau, the new OS will continue the legacy of the OxygenOS – clean, zero bloat user experience. Moreover, for those power users, the bootloader will be easy to unlock, and the users will get the ability to flash custom firmware. These changes are mostly internal. Plus as per Lau, this new collaboration/changes has brought better software builds than in the past years.
You will get to see the new OS starting the OnePlus 2022 series lineup. About the existing devices, the selected devices will get the update with the next major OS upgrade. These devices might get the same with the Android 13.
With the new strategy, OnePlus 2.0, the flagships will continue to be made available around the globe. However, the affordable range – the Nord series will be more localized. Lau also adds that OnePlus will continue to collaborate with Hasselblad for bringing the technology to the future OnePlus devices.
