    So is it just Oxygen with Chinese language?

    Why isn't there a new weather app in Oxygen?

    My god....why is it always my posts that receives the troll replies.....

    YOU KNOW WHAT I MEAN


    Oxygen OS=Global OS made by OnePlus
    Hydrogen OS= Chinese Version made by OnePlus

    What's the difference and would it be possible to flash Hydrogen in the near future and would it be worth it

    Hydrogen is supposedly going to be much like Color OS and other Chinese OEM skins. Very cartoony, bright colors, no app drawer, no Google Play Services, etc.

    Sorry man, don't ask me though. I'm still in high school! I don't have time to research. I'm sure other lads in this forum would love to help you. ;)

    hydrogen is basically oxygen os without google services for china. the weather app looks like a spinoff of one of the popular chinese weather app that displays air pollution.

    It probably won't be worth flashing it. Think TouchWiz, but all of the things you hate about it amplified, and you have pretty much every Chinese OEM skin. Also, no Google Play Services stinks.

    Ah...so Hydrogen OS is a thing only because Gapps can't be installed in China per Google agreement?

    And if it's like Color OS and Touchwiz *shudders*

    Hydrogen will probably resemble ColorOS more than it will stock android I think.
    Is it released or anything yet does anyone know?

    That, and also Chinese smartphone users look for different things than Western users. We love minimalism and simplicity. The Asian markets love bright and bold. I'm sure you'd be able to sideload Google Play Services onto Hydrogen OS...but why would you?

    Although HydrogenOS and OxygenOS may share the same source code, they are not alike. Different philosophies cause different outcomes.

    not released yet I'm afraid, and I think (according to every other reply) it will resemble Color OS and Chinese roms
