Oneplus announced that they’d be collaborating with Oppo to update their codebase and integrate OxygenOS and ColorOS on Friday. In addition, the company has also announced a new software maintenance schedule.
The updates and changes will be likely not even be visible as most of the update is happening behind the scenes. The new codebase will apply to future Oneplus devices. For devices that are still within the company’s maintenance schedule, the update will push out along with Android 12.
The company claims it’s taking these steps to ensure that each product can receive stable and timely software updates “while delivering a world-class user experience.”
According to Gary C, OxygenOS product lead at OnePlus, ” After a lot of evaluation and discussion, we’ve come up with a solid plan to best leverage our shared resources with Oppo. In order to improve efficiency and standardize the software experience across our portfolio, we’re working on integrating the codebase of OxygenOS and ColorOS.”
