Here is a brief summary! OnePlus has worked with Oppo to integrate OxygenOS and ColorOS. Replaced HydrogenOS in China with ColorOS. Later, after announcing the introduction of the OnePlus 10 Pro earlier last year, the company postponed the ColorOS-Oxygen OS “Unified OS” for the global market.And now, suddenly, OnePlus Announced Oxygen OS13.. This story sounds confusing, but OnePlus has decided not to introduce a Unified OS, so we’ve decided to make it a little clearer. Therefore, OxygenOS stays here.
OxygenOS doesn’t go anywhere!
Through a recent blog post on the community forum, OnePlus has revealed that OxygenOS and ColorOS remain separate entities. But it also OxygenOS and ColorOS share the same codebase for faster updates and better build quality..
This means that global OnePlus devices, including OnePlus 10 Pro and other future devices, will run OxygenOS 13. The Chinese variant runs ColorOS.
OnePlus reveals that the reason behind this decision is their fans. It states:This new course was taken based on feedback from the community. Users of OxygenOS and ColorOS understand that they want to keep each operating system separate from each other with their own properties.”
So everyone who doesn’t like the idea of a merger and is worried that the OnePlus phone will lose its essence should be pleased! Personally, I like the idea that OxygenOS cannot be replaced. However, I’m still not sure if some of the minor ColorOS elements I’ve seen on recent OnePlus phones will still remain! You can watch our video to know what we are talking about.
In addition to making sure OxygenOS is alive, OnePlus also talked about the next OxygenOS 13. The next-generation OS version is “Fast and smooth experience, effortless design, and ease of use.It is also said Has a unique design with new customization features.. Details of OxygenOS 13 will be announced at the same time as this year’s announcement.
