All the necessary information in one place

Some time ago, there was speculation that we would not see the OxygenOS upgrade in version 13 at all. The complete elimination of this user environment and the subsequent replacement by the ColorOS superstructure, which is located on OPPO smartphones, was speculated. In this article, we will summarize all the information about the upcoming OxygenOS 13, which will be built on the Android 13 operating system. We will also reveal which OnePlus smartphones should be updated to the latest software at a later date. The information was published by the website Android Central.

What can be expected from the new version of the OxygenOS superstructure?

We will mention that Android 13 can already be tested on the OnePlus 10 Pro. However, this is pure Android 13, which is not complemented by the OxygenOS GUI. Of course, Android as such will change to some extent. OxygenOS 13 beta will not be released until the third quarter of the current year.

The whole superstructure is actually built on ColorOS, which further moves it further away from pure Android, but on the other hand, it should mean faster updates, as the parent company OPPO no longer has to develop separate new versions for two completely different superstructures.

For select users, OnePlus has unveiled OxygenOS 13 to get an early response. The new version of the user interface should focus on improving the personalization capabilities of the smartphone environment. The manufacturer should also add additional options for the Always On display functionality, such as controlling the music being played. Zen Mode should be optimized for a better and more efficient user experience.

OnePlus claims that OxygenOS 13 will not break their current philosophy and will still offer a seamless user experience. However, ColorOS remains the core of the superstructure and no change is expected in the near future. The Chinese company no longer even has a dedicated team purely for OxygenOS, so development and updates are taken care of by the same developers who are also in charge of ColorOS on devices with the OPPO logo.

Therefore, we could expect the implementation of some functions from ColorOS to OxygenOS, which can be considered positive news. OPPO smartphones are really crowded with handy functions and options for adjusting the appearance of the graphical environment.

Which phones will receive the update on Android 13 with the OxygenOS 13 extension?

Although the official list of updated models has not yet been published, it is possible to estimate that Android 13 with the OxygenOS 13 extension will be used by users of these smartphones:
