It's official: OnePlus will not release the OnePlus 9T this year, and future flagships will get a merged OS with OPPO

OnePlus CEO Pete Lau gave a big interview in which talked about future plans after the merger with OPPO.

Without OnePlus 9T

It was previously rumored that this year's OnePlus 9T flagship is not worth waiting for . And here is the CEO of the company confirmed this information - truth, without  explaining the reasons. In the end, this will be the first year without a T-series device since when OnePlus approved the OnePlus 3T release schedule in 2016. Traditionally, the company has released regular flagships in the first half of the year and with the prefix in the name in the second half of the year. Rounding out the lineup so far is last year's OnePlus 8T (pictured at ).

OxygenOS and

 ColorOS

Lai also revealed that after the merger with OPPO, the companies are combining OxygenOS and ColorOS operating systems. These Android-based shells will still have their own branding and unique features, but the code underlying their will be the same. Moreover - them will be developed by the same team. According to idea, the end result should be an operating system that is "fast and smooth", "clean and light", like OxygenOS and also "reliable", "smart and multifunction", like ColorOS.

The integrated operating system should get future flagships - by idea, OnePlus 10 lineup 2022. It will also be available for older OnePlus devices, if support is still planned for them.

In addition to integrating the two companies' operating systems, OnePlus also said it will integrate its Warp Charge fast charging standard with SuperVOOC from OPPO.
