OnePlus has updated the Android OS update schedule for some of its devices currently available in the open market. OnePlus has refreshed the update cycle for its OnePlus 8 series and flagship smartphones launched after. The company has also announced the update schedule for Nord, Nord CE and Nord N devices.
The software maintenance schedule was updated after OnePlus decided to merge its OxygenOS with Oppo’s ColorOS. OxygenOS has been well-liked for its clean and almost stock Android experience among OnePlus users. OnePlus said that it plans to leverage its shared resources with Oppo to improve efficiency and standardise the software experience with OxygenOS across its portfolio.
Will your OnePlus phone use OxygenOS in future?
Even after the merger with ColorOS, upcoming OnePlus devices across markets will continue to use OxygenOS as before, “but now built on a more stable and stronger platform,” the company said. Existing devices included in the updated software maintenance schedule that are still due to receive OS and security updates will receive them via an OTA update along with Android 12.
Users will not even notice the merger between Oxygen OS and ColorOS as the changes are happening “behind the scenes,” OnePlus said. “We now have a larger and even more capable team of developers, more advanced R&D resources, and a more streamlined development process all coming together to improve the OxygenOS experience.”
