OnePlus is getting ready to offer users a bunch of business updates. These are related to the OnePlus 10 Pro’s global launch, new plans for OxygenOS, a new retail model pilot in India, and a shift in product focus. However, the most notable update is that the forthcoming OnePlus 10 Pro will feature OxygenOS 12.1 not unified OxygenOS.

Details about the forthcoming OxygenOS 13
The most important news from OnePlus is the company’s ambitions for OxygenOS 13. Yes, as we reported earlier this month, OnePlus is working on OxygenOS 13.
This is not inline with the intentions OnePlus and OPPO’s discussion last year for a “unified OS”. Right now, OxygenOS and ColorOS are built on the same codebase.
The initial concept, dating back to 2021, was to go one step further and combine the “quick and burdenless experience of OxygenOS with the stability and extensive functionality of ColorOS.” However, OnePlus’ intentions have altered for 2022, and the company now wants to maintain OxygenOS independent from ColorOS, based on community feedback. There will be no longer be a “unified OS,” and OxygenOS and ColorOS will both continue to exist.
There are a few factors to consider in addition to OnePlus’ statement. OxygenOS is currently comparable to an experienced skin over ColorOS in its current form.
That’s not necessarily a negative thing, but it begs the question: what precisely has changed between the two announcements, aside from the decision to preserve the name? We know that the OPPO Reno 6 5G, the OPPO Reno 7 5G (Global), the OPPO Reno 7 SE 5G (China), and the OnePlus Nord CE 2 5G are all running the same software.
