Oppo ColorOS now Houses OnePlus Nord 2 OxygenOS. The line that now divides OnePlus and it happens to be distant cousin Oppo is becoming much thinner and blurrier. Not so long after OnePlus CEO Pete Lau took up a major position in Oppo, OnePlus that announced that it would be making use of OPPO’s ColorOS instead of its own HydrogenOS for Chinese models.
It didn’t take so long for the two companies’ software teams to merge. And this happens to be the first fruits of this unification of OxygenOS and ColorOS would be discovered but not seen right in the new OnePlus Nord 2.
Oppo ColorOS now Houses OnePlus Nord 2 OxygenOS
OnePlus announcement that took place last month would be merging part with its operations specifically. with its R&D, OPPO might have brought concerns from all those that are on the younger company’s side. CEO Pete Lau, of course, downplays right to the negative impact of such a move and focuses right on the positive effect of combining the two Android software updates because of it.
That promises still to have proven in action, but at least one part of OnePlus’ guarantee is verified already. Anyone that is making use of it, or testing the OnePlus Nord 2 hasn’t noticed any differences, at least as far as the user experience goes, from any other OnePlus phone. This is despite the fact that it is still running OPPO’s ColorOS underneath.
OnePlus Merges OxygenOS with ColorOS
According to 9to5Google, this detail was apparently stated briefly in the reviewers’ guide for the phone. Now it seems like most of the ColorOS-related changes took place right under the hood, invisible to the eyes if the users. To be clear, the OxygenOS has become a skin that is right on top of the ColorOS.
Ever since the changes are in a way disruptive, it could actually ease the worries of OnePlus fans concerning the merger of these two companies’ software. OnePlus has promised that OxygenOS would not be going anywhere anytime soon. But it is too early for you to tell if it would not happen eventually.
The OxygenOS 11 already has proved that the company would not shy away from turning the user experience right away from something that its customers have made use of. And it might just only be a matter of time before the OxygenOS and ColorOS become nearly indistinguishable.
