OnePlus 10 Pro is expected to launch globally by mid- or end-March. The flagship phone was made available in the Chinese market in early January. Now, a new report suggests that OnePlus 10 Pro would launch globally with OxygenOS 12 custom skin. Earlier, it was expected that the global rollout of the OnePlus 10 series flagship would be accompanied by the release of a unified OS by OnePlus and Oppo. The tech giants — sister brands that fall under China’s BBK Electronics — had announced in September 2021 that they would be combining their custom ColourOS and OxygenOS skins to develop a unified operating platform.
As per the report from 91Mobiles, tipster Yogesh Brar has revealed that OnePlus and Oppo have decided to postpone the release of their unified OS. This indicates that the global variant of OnePlus 10 Pro will feature the OxygenOS 12 skin out of the box. Notably, OnePlus 10 Pro launched in China with Oppo’s ColourOS 12.1 skin.
