All it takes to turn an OPPO phone into a OnePlus device is… a letter to the FCC?

Written by admin
While it has never been a secret that OPPO and OnePlus are owned by the same parent company, the two manufacturers have recently been closer than most fans would like. OnePlus phones dating back to the OnePlus 6 have been accused of being renamed OPPO phones, and the two companies are apparently not even trying to pretend to have different identities anymore.
The documents are for an LTE-only OnePlus device, presumably a budget Nord model, which is identical to an OPPO phone with the model number CPH2387 and is believed to be the Oppo A57 4G which was unveiled last week.

The letter states that OnePlus wants to rebrand the device as its own device.

When OnePlus started, it focused on the enthusiast market and had its own identity. This started to change towards the end of 2020 and OPPO and OnePlus later merged their R&D units. OnePlus’ software overlay OxygenOS started to stink of OPPO’s ColorOS, but the response the companies received for it was so strong that it was announced that while the two will continue to use the same codebase, the two operating systems will not be united.
The two will likely still continue to sell each other’s products with a few tweaks here and there. For example, a rumor says that the OPPO Find N will have a blueprint for OnePlus’ first foldable phone. Another leak claims that OPPO Reno 8 could be a OnePlus 10 Pro knock-off.
The FCC Document mentions the changes OnePlus will make to the OPPO CPH2387 to turn it into a OnePlus device. First and foremost, the model number will be changed to CPH2469 and the company name will be changed to OnePlus.

The battery cover is provided with a OnePlus logo and the color of the USB cable changes to red from green. The main camera will be replaced by a higher resolution 50MP sensor and the device will use OxygenOS instead of ColorOS. The dimensions remain the same at 163.74 x 75.03 x 7.99 mm and the battery capacity also remains unchanged at 5,000 mAh.

Not much else is mentioned in the docs, but if you’re wondering what the mysterious OnePlus phone has to offer, the Oppo A57 4G has a 6.5-inch LCD display and the MediaTek Helio G35 SoC and supports 33W. to upload.
