Earlier this year, OnePlus and Oppo decided to merge their Research & Development(R&D) teams, thus clarifying that software won’t be touched. But, after six months, OnePlus has announced that it will be joining forces with OPPO to offer even better products to customers. In a forum, co-founder and CEO Pete Lau has confirmed this development.
Both companies will continue to operate independently
Lau confirmed that the companies would continue to “operate independently” as separate brands. Maintaining its focus on providing its customers with the best possible products and experience.
In the statement, lau pointed out that this move should allow it “to be more efficient, to bringing faster and more stable software updates” in the future.
It might come out as a surprise to many, but the OnePlus and OPPO are owned by BBK Electronics, which also owns brands such as Vivo and Realme. All these companies, share resources internally since their establishment. Now, it will be interesting to see how OnePlus would operate in such new modifications in the company.
OxygenOS or ColorOS
Oneplus changes its operating system in china to ColorOS from HydrogenOS. So, can this mean that in the global market OnePlus could change it to ColorOS? No, the OnePlus CEO confirms in a forum.
Hopefully, this remains to sustained because OxygenOS is far more superior in performance and loved by users than ColorOS of OPPO.
If the company chooses to come with ColorOS then would you still go for the OnePlus? Let us know in the comments section below.
So it will be interesting to see how this merger outcome will look for consumers. But at the moment, it sure looks like it is the next Huawei and Honor.
