OnePlus stated in June 2021 that its OxygenOS operating system will be tightly integrated with OPPO’s ColorOS. Following this, OnePlus discontinued the use of HydrogenOS in favour of ColorOS in the country of origin. Afterwards, the Android 12 upgrade was rolled out to all areas, thereby reducing the OxygenOS to the status of nothing more than a rebranded ColorOS.
According to a recent story, both firms will be dumping their operating system names in favour of a unified operating system with a single name, which is reported to be H2OOS, rather than separate operating systems. Now, OnePlus has revealed that they are working on the OxygenOS 13 operating system, which will be based on Android 13.
According to the newest information, the brand will be dropping the OxygenOS moniker entirely, contrary to existing speculations and narratives that the brand will do so. It is possible, however, that the upcoming unified global operating system name change will still take place, albeit with a longer delay than the previous rumours suggest. OnePlus has previously stated that they will begin offering a unified global operating system across all of their devices at some point, so it is possible that the upcoming unified global operating system name change will still take place, but with a longer delay than the previous rumours suggest.
OxygenOS 13 will be discussed on the Open Ears Forum with their userbase in an effort to develop the best OxygenOS for OnePlus smartphones, according to the most recent release.
