After working closely with Oppo for a long time, OnePlus has now made its merger with the Chinese business public. OnePlus opted to “further integrate” its organization with Oppo “after observing good effect” from the current partnership. According to co-founder and CEO Pete Lau in a forum post.
OnePlus and Oppo, on the other hand, will continue to operate as separate brands, according to the executive. The news comes only days after OnePlus announced the OnePlus Nord CE as its new cheap smartphone in India and other regions.
In a forum post, Lau stated that the tighter integration with Oppo will provide OnePlus with additional resources to deliver “even better products” to customers.
He mentioned that one of the adjustments may be “faster and more stable software upgrades,” which are frequently requested by consumers owing to delays in regular updates on older OnePlus phones and unsatisfactory experiences on newer models.
OnePlus and Oppo are both controlled by BBK Electronics, a Guangdong-based company that also owns Vivo and Realme. As a result, since their beginning, all of these firms have shared resources internally.
Lau and his colleague Carl Pei, who both worked at Oppo before launching OnePlus in December 2013, were also co-founders. However, the latest step looks to effectively reveal the OnePlus and Oppo partnership on product development and channel more of their own resources.
In the article titled “A New Journey for OnePlus,” Lau stated, “As for the OnePlus brand — we will continue to operate freely, focusing on delivering you with the greatest possible products and experience as we have always done.”
OnePlus, according to the 46-year-old CEO, will continue to introduce products, host events, and connect with its audience directly through the same channels as previously. All of this means that, at least in the medium term, there will be no substantial changes for OnePlus users.
However, for the Chinese versions of its flagship smartphones, OnePlus replaced its native HydrogenOS with Oppo’s ColorOS early this year. Last year, the firm also released the HeyMelody app, which provided update services for both OnePlus and Oppo earbuds.
Lau joined OPlus, Oppo’s parent company that also has a controlling interest in OnePlus, in May 2020. With this change, the CEO was able to move OnePlus closer to Oppo. Last year, OnePlus and Oppo improved their user experience by better integrating their research and development (R&D) resources.
OnePlus announced the OnePlus Nord CE 5G for worldwide markets earlier this week, as well as the OnePlus Nord N200 5G in Canada and the United States. The firm is also expected to release the OnePlus Nord 2 in the coming days, expanding its presence in the mid-range market.
This merger may help us in understanding and getting more products from the giant companies. We should wait and see how this works for the tech world and what next we get in the future.
Mr. Pete Lau, the CEO of OnePlus, stated last month that the Nord N200 5G, which will be exclusive to the United States and Canada, will be released soon. He didn’t say when the phone would be released, but it has been featured on B&H Photo’s website with official-looking photos and a $239.99 price tag.
While that pricing could be a placeholder. The retailer says you may pre-order one starting June 25, which seems a little too specific and is more likely accurate.
The Nord N200 5G will have four cameras onboard:
A 16MP selfie camera in the punch hole
A13MP primary camera on the back, and 2MP macro and 2MP monochrome cameras on the front.
The Nord N200 5G will also have a fingerprint scanner on the side. A USB-C connector, and a 3.5mm headphone jack.
The device’s 5G connectivity, though, is the most significant enhancement. Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, USB Type-C, and a 3.5mm headphone jack are among the other connectivity choices on the Nord N200 5G.
Starting June 25, the Nord N200 5G will be offered in a single Blue Quantum color option. In the United States and Canada, the smartphone will be available through OnePlus’ own website, as well as partner stores such as T-Mobile, Best Buy, Amazon, and B&H.
The OnePlus Nord N200 5G is not currently available in other markets, according to OnePlus.
