OnePlus Announces OxygenOS 13

After announcing last year that it would move to a unified Android version with Oppo, OnePlus has hit pause and will release OxygenOS 13 first.

“We’re bringing back our Open Ears Forum (OEF) as an online event to overcome the distance between us with a brand new topic, OxygenOS 13,” a recent OnePlus forum announcement notes. “This is one of the biggest topics we’ve brought to Open Ears Forums to date, so don’t miss this chance. Your feedback will be instrumental to shape one of our most important OS updates. The OxygenOS team is hard at work and they want to hear from you.”

That’s interesting because OnePlus was going to walk away from its vaunted OxygenOS and use an updated version of Oppo’s ColorOS for its handsets instead. It’s also potentially good news, because the move to ColorOS was not well-liked by the vocal OnePlus fanbase at all. That said, this could be a temporary change while Oppo/OnePlus figures out how to move to a consolidated ColorOS.

Until OnePlus clarifies the situation, we can only guess what the future will hold. But if you want to be part of that future, you can apply to join the Online OEF that will help determine what OxygenOS 13 is like.

    <p>Oh boy, it’s an utter shambles. Oxygen OS 12 is a bug ridden mess on OP 9 pro. Everyone I know has rolled back to Oxygen OS 11. Color OS and oxygen OS code base merge combined with the android 12 upgrade has completely sent OP into a software nosedive, they have spectacularly failed.</p><p><br></p><p>If you ignore all the problems from what has clearly been no more than an alpha roll out and not the stated stable version, the camera and picture quality of the OP 9pro with OOS 12 has drastically deteriorated. Roll back to OOS 11 and everything’s fine.</p><p><br></p><p>The total mess they’ve made for themselves is just remarkable. They’ve undone nearly all the last 8 years brand building. </p><p><br></p><p>Its a proper omnishambles and for those who know what I mean, then Yes, I’m in full Malcolm Tucker mode! </p>
