Both OnePlus and Oppo will continue being competitors and OnePlus’ customer data will remain with it. Additionally, the contact channels and products will continue to be as they are for both brands.
The document also highlights how to respond to OxygenOS or ColorOS questions. The answer is expected to be “We currently do not have any updates regarding the operating systems. Please stay tuned to our official channels.”
This could possibly mean something new for OxygenOS or even ColorOS. There are chances that the OnePlus phones might switch to ColorOS, similar to what has happened in China. Although, we don’t have any concrete information on the same. That said, the recent report claimed otherwise so maybe it’s a relief for all.
We still await an official word from both OnePlus and Oppo to get a more conclusive idea of how things will be going forward.
We will keep you posted on the same. Hence, stay tuned to this space for more details.
