Based on the recent changes at OnePlus and its inclination towards its parent company Oppo, it made us very clear the direction they are moving towards. Not to mention, this merger also included the combination of OxygenOS and ColorOS into a completely new Android skin with a unified interface taking the goods from both worlds. 

What is OnePlus 2.0? 

It was last September when OnePlus’s chief Pete Lau showcased their plan about a complete merger between OnePlus and its parent company Oppo. This even is what came to be referred to as OnePlus 2.0. 

In fact, some changes were more apparent than others, including the underlying software of the OnePlus phones. This would be carried out in the ‘Unified OS’ sharing the codebase as well as aesthetic elements from both OxygenOS and ColorOS. 

More About Unified OS

Last fall, Pete Lau stated (via Android Authority) how the company is looking forward to a Unified OS that would launch alongside the OnePlus 10 series. Furthermore, there were more evident proofs, as OxygenOS 12 shared a close resemblance with Oppo’s ColorOS. 

Now another leak from the Indian leak blogger Yogesh Brar and 91Mobiles suggests that the global version of the OnePlus 10 Pro is going to retain OxygenOS 12. The doesn’t even stipulate which software the Chinese variants of the OnePlus 10 and 10 Pro will come with.

There isn’t any note on what caused the potential delay, and how it is going to affect older OnePlus and Oppo smartphones. As for the OnePlus 10 Pro, it is going to retain the same spec sheet as its Chinese variant.

Backed by a 6.7-inch E4 LTPO 2.0 120Hz OLED panel, at its core the smartphone is going to run by Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 SoC with LPDDR5 RAM and UFS 3.1 storage. Some new improvements include a vapor chamber cooling solution along with Hasselblad 2.0 triple camera setup and 5000 mAh battery.

Another aspect that is completely separate yet related to the recent development, as Yogesh Brar mentioned, the upcoming Realme 9 series is going to ship with Realme UI 3.0. Realme being Oppo’s sub-brand in the Indian market has a better chance of switching over to ColorOS. But there is no word either of Realme adopting to Unified OS as well.

The Bottom Line 

So, that was all about how Unified OS still remains a mystery to us. That being said, now is the best time ever to see how the entire journey of the OnePlus 2.0 pans out.
