    OnePlus and OPPO appear to be integrating teams and possibly features, but the two brands will remain. Yesterday, the company announced its plan to have a deeper integration with OPPO. It will help to streamline its operations and make “better products”. However, this is not the first time they have collaborated. Earlier this year, both merged their respective R&D teams after Peter Lau joined the team.

    Last year I took on some additional responsibilities to oversee product strategy for both OnePlus and OPPO. Since then, we have integrated a number of our teams together with OPPO to better streamline our operations and capitalize on additional shared resources. After seeing positive impact from those changes, we’ve decided to further integrate our organization with OPPO.

    Will OnePlus still retain its Oxygen OS?

    However, since the news for the deeper integration has hit online there are some questions arising on the same. Some consumers are wondering about what will happen to the OnePlus phone software. They have asked if they would still run on OxygenOS. The company assures that they will still to OxygenOS for smartphones. Nothing much will change to the products and services. OnePlus and OPPO are simply joining forces to make business operations more efficient.

    According to the company, the companies will share resources to create better products for consumers. While the teams do share hands, they will continue to work independently. Meaning both the brands will still use their own OS. OnePlus is going to continue using Oxygen OS in all their markets. However, we might see both companies share some features for their respective Android ROMs. Both companies are yet to announce the next version of their custom Android skin. They could make their respective Android skin official later this year.

    Meanwhile, it is still unclear what exactly that integration will mean. Although OnePlus will operate independently and likely remain a mid-tier and budget smartphone brand.
