After the announcement of the merger of OnePlus and OPPO, the life of OnePlus continues to change, although this is not surprising
What will change?
So OnePlus unites its proprietary shellOxygenOS with ColorOS from OPPO. But for users, nothing will change, because the skins will continue to exist separately from each other: OxygenOS will continue to be used for OnePlus phones around the world, ColorOS for OnePlus and OPPO devices in China.
But they will share a common codebase, which,should standardize its software experience and streamline the development process for future OxygenOS updates, according to OnePlus.
In addition, OnePlus, following the example of Samsung, decided to extend support for smartphones. The new graph looks like this:
- Flagships, including the T and R models, will receive three major Android updates and four years of security updates.
- The Nord and Nord CE models will receive two major Android updates and three years of security updates.
- Nord N budget users will receive one major Android update and three years of security updates.
But this applies to smartphones OnePlus 8 and up, so older devices are out of luck.</ p>
