OnePlus is beginning the rollout of Android 10 and OxygenOS 10 for its OnePlus and OnePlus 7 Pro. The operating system, which shipped on Pixels and Essential phones last month, is coming to OnePlus devices just under a month after release — pretty fast for an Android rollout.
Here’s what’s new:
- Upgraded to Android 10
- Brand new UI design
- Enhanced location permissions for privacy
- New customization feature in Settings allowing you to choose icon shapes to be displayed in the Quick Settings
- Full Screen Gestures
- Added inward swipes from the left or right edge of the screen to go back
- Added a bottom navigation bar to allow switching left or right for recent apps
- Game Space
- New Game Space feature now joins all your favorite games in one place for easier access and better gaming experience
- Smart display
- Intelligent info based on specific times, locations and events for Ambient Display (Settings – Display – Ambient Display – Smart Display)
- Now possible to block spam by keywords for Message (Messages – Spam – Settings -Blocking settings)
While Android 10 isn’t a big release in itself, OnePlus’s optimisations do help mitigate the gestural flaws. The theming system, hidden on Pixels behind developer settings, is also front and center here.
