Chinese handset makers Oppo and OnePlus are working together to bring an integrated operating system by merging their Oxygen OS and Color OS by early next year. This follows their recent merger at the group level, with the two companies integrating their research and development capabilities in India. The integrated OS will be launched with OnePlus‘ latest flagship smartphone in the first half of 2022, OnePlus founder Pete Lau told ET.

“Directionally, things are moving to having teams focus on the integrated OS. However, it is important to know that across software, there are many different teams focusing on many different aspects like chipset integration, OS experience, animations,” said Lau, who is also the chief product and experience officer at Oppo.

The OS will be available on other OnePlus global devices as a 2022 major Android update. OnePlus currently uses Oxygen OS for its smartphones. Oppo smartphones will also use the integrated OS in the future instead of its Color OS.

The combined company will maintain differentiation for all products of Oppo and OnePlus, said Lau.
