It is interesting to note that of late, Oppo has announced its internal takeover of OnePlus’ R&D and software divisions. After the latter integrated its divisions with fellow BBK Electronics brand Oppo, the company announced ColorOS 12 in China earlier last month. In this announcement, the companies stated that eligible devices for the update would include the Oppo Find X3 and the OnePlus 9 series. Globally, however, ColorOS 12 is seemingly set to be restricted largely to Oppo devices only. While OnePlus phones will continue to feature its own custom Android OS, OxygenOS.
On this front, Oppo has stated it is laying down the course of its upgrade rollout. The company is seemingly promising three years of Android upgrades for its Find X series of flagship smartphones. The premium Reno and F series smartphones are line up for two major Android upgrades. While the basic A series Oppo phones will offer one Android upgrade in their life cycle. In terms of security patches, the Oppo A series phones will get three years of updates. While the Find X, Reno and F series phones get four years of security updates.
