The merger reportedly took place in December, but has not been officially stamped until recently. “This is similar to the relationship between Xiaomi and Redmi, who share the same R & D system.” This was quoted by Oppo Insider.
Immediately after the report is covered Android Authority, Outlet confirmed the first report by emailing an official statement from a OnePlus spokesperson.
To better maximize resources and further position OnePlus for growth, we are in the process of further integrating some R&D capabilities within OPLUS, our long-term investor. OnePlus will continue operating independently and working to deliver the best possible user experience for existing and future OnePlus users.
The close relationship between Oppo and OnePlus was often undeniable. Both brands run under the parent company BBK, and looking at the latest Oppo flagship phones could help us understand what to expect for the next OnePlus device.
