It’s been an entire year since OnePlus began the process of consolidating software development between its Oxygen OS and Oppo’s Color OS.

Back in 2021, OnePlus CEO Pete Lau announced that this new unified operating system would be the future of Oxygen OS and would embrace all the features traditionally found on Oppo devices. Predictably, that announcement didn’t go down too well with long-time OnePlus fans. The company decided to later reassure them by saying that it was giving the decision a rethink: Oxygen OS 13 would be taking a step back from its consolidation efforts and keep the light, burden-less design that fans loved.
