On the OnePlus forums, Pete Lau, the boss of the company, announces that the workforce of OnePlus will integrate those of Oppo. After one and a half transformation, OnePlus finally assumes its merger with its parent company.
A merger between OnePlus and Oppo
OnePlus and Oppo are now one. Pete Lau, the co-founder of the OnePlus brand recently confirmed this in an official statement. We learn that the two brands will now work together.
Since its creation, OnePlus is offended as soon as we talk to it about Oppo. Regularly questioned on the subject, the leaders of the Chinese company keep asserting that they are independent, that Oppo has no control over their products, and that the BBK super-group, which owns OnePlus, Oppo, Vivo, and Realme, is just a fantasy. This communication often disturbed us, the links between the two companies being more than proven (common buildings, shared technologies, etc.)
On its forums, the company today confirms its merger with Oppo. Pete Lau’s company will integrate with the smartphone giant in order, according to its co-founder, to have “more resources at hand to create even better products”.
OxygenOS will be retained despite the merger
Despite the merger with Oppo, OnePlus’ interface, Oxygen OS, will not be replaced by ColorOS. Pete Lau, the boss of the brand confirms that it will be maintained and that it will continue to receive updates. It also ensures that all future smartphones will benefit from the interface. But it seems obvious that common developments will take place.
Pete Lau confirms that Oxygen OS will not die. Not only will all models currently working with this interface receive updates, but smartphones under development will also continue to use Oxygen OS. Pete Lau, therefore, does not plan to replace Oxygen OS with ColorOS, the Oppo interface. At least not for now. And not entirely.
