“OxygenOS 10.0.1 update to OnePlus 7 and OnePlus 7 Pro brings new UI design, full-screen gestures, and Game Space improvements”
OnePlus 7 and OnePlus 7 Pro are now receiving OxygenOS 10.0.1 update based on Android 10. Though the Android 10 update was initially rolled out in September but was halted immediately due to bugs. The latest update as you’d expect, brings all the Android 10 sweetness to OxygenOS, including the new UI design, full-screen gestures where you can swipe from the left or right to go back, and a bottom navigation bar. The OxygenOS 10.0.1 update brings bug fixes and improvements as well. As for customisation, the new features let users choose icon shapes to be displayed in the Quick Settings, and the Ambient display now surfaces information based on specific times, locations, and events.
Game Space improves the gaming experience by clubbing the games in one place for easier access. The photo quality is also enhanced, and users can now block spam by keywords for Messages. OnePlus stressed that the update is a staged rollout, meaning it will be rolled out to users over a period of time. The company also clarified that using a VPN to download the update manually won’t work as it’s not based on regions and is randomly pushed out to a limited number of devices. Apart from OnePlus 7 and OnePlus 7 Pro, OxygenOS 10.0.1 is also rolling out to the newly launched OnePlus 7T and OnePlus 7T Pro. However, it is widely rolling out already.
The Snapdragon 855 SoC powers the OnePlus 7-series flagships and they feature an in-display fingerprint sensor for security. While the OnePlus 7T Pro feature a Quad HD+ display with curved edges and pop-up mechanism, the standard OnePlus 7 rocks a Full HD+ panel with a waterdrop to accommodate the selfie snapper.
