Earlier this week, OnePlus declared its merger with Oppo. In the announcement, OnePlus said that it will continue to operate as an independent brand under Oppo. The merger will also help expand this company’s R&D also supply chain to ship more devices. However, the announcement left users confused regarding the future of OxygenOS outside of China. A leaked memo now reveals that OnePlus has instructed its employees not to respond to queries related to the operating system.
OnePlus tells employees not to answer questions about the operating system
Whistleblower Evan Blass shared the internal OnePlus note on Twitter. “Important Note: Please do not reply to any questions regarding the OS or Color OS that are targeted at this integration announcement. Just use the answer below – we currently do not have any updates regarding operating systems. Stay tuned on our official channels, ”the memo reads.
Surprisingly, the note’s leak comes at a time when OnePlus CEO Pete Lau took to the company’s official forums to claim that OxygenOS will remain the operating system for devices outside of China. “OxygenOS will proceed to be this OS for global OnePlus devices outside of this China store,” he said.
If that’s the case, why does OnePlus instruct employees not to respond to inquiries? Does this mean that ColorOS will eventually replace OxygenOS in global markets? There is a lack of internal communication here. Even if the Chinese giant continues to use its clean OxygenOS skin on its devices, OxygenOS is undeniably getting closer to ColorOS when it comes to overall design aesthetics, starting with OxygenOS 11.
In addition to the instruction not to respond to queries related to the operating system, the memo includes a set of possible questions along with their answers. In particular, OnePlus aims to complete the integration before the end of the year and continue to use its servers to store user data. And to those concerned about Nord smartphones, it will continue to produce as a product line under this OnePlus brand.
