Although the Chinese handset maker stated the upcoming Nord to ship with OxygenOS, XDA Developer in its recent report suggested that the new OnePlus Nord 2 5G will be the first to offer the blend of OxygenOS-ColorOS hybrid. Notably, OnePlus last month announced its plan to integrate OxygenOS with Oppo’s ColorOS operating system. However, the company did mention that users won’t notice any changes even if both Android-based OS will share the same code base. While it’s still early to predict, perhaps we might see minor tweaks in themes and customisation in later OxygenOS builds.
