A new rumor states that OnePlus may merge together its two operating systems, HydrogenOS and OxygenOS. The underlying benefit here would be faster updates and enhanced security.
We can’t knock OnePlus for all the work it has done since it launched the original OnePlus One back in 2014. Their system UI has changed quite a bit, in fact, it’s hard to even realize the improvements were made over just two generations. However, there is still some work to be done.
One of the underlying problems OnePlus has with its two operating systems, HydrogenOS (Chinese version) and OxygenOS, is pushing out software updates (see Droid Updates!) in a timely manner. To fix this, the company seems to be debating on merging the two platforms. This would allow for things like speedier updates, since the team will have to test and take in feedback for just one OS. We can expect the whole process to run smoother, be more effective and take around half the time.
We don’t know what OnePlus has in store for the name, however, sources have made guesses that it will keep the OxygenOS name and ditch HydrogonOS. We’ll keep you posted on future breakings.
