    Hi friends,

    Today I would like to update you on a new development for our Chinese users and that you may have heard discussion about in the last few days: after listening to their feedback and voices, our China market devices will now be using a customized version of ColorOS, tailored specifically for OnePlus smartphones, starting with the upcoming OnePlus 9 series.

    For all of our users outside of mainland China, we will continue using OxygenOS for global devices in the future and remain committed to offering a fast and smooth experience with OxygenOS.

    As a global technology company, we always look for ways to address the different usage habits and preferences among our users worldwide. We truly believe this customized new operating system will bring our Chinese users a software experience that is better suited to their liking.

    Don't think I'd mind color os on my phone too. I like how it's matured over the years! Hopefully, now that everything is under the same roof, you'll take some inspiration from it. ;)

    I still prefer Oxygen OS due to its stock feel and minimalist design! If people want ColorOS then they can buy directly oppo ,since hardware is pretty much same these days!

    I really don't like color os and i believe when a company is divided into two parts the outcome is not good either none or the less for me this is a big deal even though the software is changing in china .although Oneplus is saying that it will only be for china and will continue to provide oxygen os to global in future this is probably not true either surely it will happen to the global also (in near future)
    Thanks for the clearity though (it's just my opinion)

    Thanks, don't even think about color OS for global users, Just because " some YouTuber " started liking the Colour OS doesn't means the OS is better or matured.

    If I have to go for colour OS, I would buy a OPPO phone instead of OnePlus.

    Thanks again for the thread and sticking to Oxygen OS 🙏🏻:)

    A 10k phone and 60k both running on same skin under the hood makes me think why I paid 50k more ? Maybe camera? Then at that much amount I can opt for a proper dslr and a 10k phone!

    Even color os has gone a long mile from the cartoonish ui to a more matured android skin. The users won't mind the change if color OS is fine tuned to run on OnePlus phones

    Speed is relative. :rolleyes:

    Compared to the speed at which other manufacturers update their phones.
