OnePlus Nord 2 5G

In the last couple of weeks, OnePlus has offered more and more information in regards to the upcoming OnePlus Nord 2 5G. Certain such things are the key specifications, launch date and display size and specifications, all of which provide insight in relation to what one can expect from the company's next Nord-series offering.

Today, however, XDA Developers has revealed that the OnePlus Nord 2 5G is set to be the first OnePlus handset to feature the new hybrid codebase of OxygenOS and ColorOS, OxygenOS 11.3.

In case you missed it, earlier this month, the company had announced that it would be integrating OxygenOS with sister company Oppo's ColorOS operating system, with a follow-up announcement revealing that both companies were being merged in all ways except the exact name.

We can also expect future OnePlus devices to follow in the footsteps of the Nord 2 5G. In relation to this, the Head of Product for OnePlus, Oliver Zhang told the publication that the main idea when it comes to the codebase integration was to streamline OnePlus's R&D resources, which should help the company to deliver more timely and more stable software updates for its devices, whilst being able to maintain the devices for longer.

From a user perspective, he added that not much would change on a daily basis whilst using OxygenOS. Nord 2 users will be able to experience the same fast and smooth experience that users have come to expect from OnePlus.

The other OnePlus devices' software will also use the new codebase with the Android 12 update, which is far from being released to the public.

OnePlus might even make use of some ColorOS features and use them in future OxygenOS builds. Chinese OEMs are also free to take hints from each other, and as of now, approximately every Android skin made by a Chinese OEM has a similar set of features.

When it comes to other OnePlus related news, the company recently announced that the OnePlus Nord 2 5G would feature support for 2 major Android updates and 3 years of security updates and will come with OxygenOS 11 out of the box.

This is in line with the announcement made by the company at the time of its merger, adding that the Nord series of devices would get 2 major Android updates and 3 years of security updates for the devices.
