Chinese smartphone manufacturer, OnePlus had already released the Android Nougat update for it’s flagship killer devices i.e. the OnePlus 3 & OnePlus 3T. The Android Nougat update for both the above mentioned devices came with Oxygen OS which is Global ROM for OnePlus devices.
Now OnePlus has released the Android Nougat update based ROM for OnePlus 3 and OnePlus 3T but with Hydrogen OS. As I’ve already mentioned that Oxygen OS is a global ROM from the company for it’s global devices whereas the Hydrogen OS is for China only. Each company has to make somewhat different OS in order to launch a phone in China. This is just because all the Google services are banned in China. So every manufacturer has to provide own apps and app store as well.
