Android 13 update for OnePlus Nord 2

Android 13-based OxygenOS custom skin is available to vanilla OnePlus Nord 2 and OnePlus Nord 2 PAC-MAN Edition. OnePlus says that this is a staged rollout, which means the update will be available for limited users initially and then expand to all users once the company is sure that there are no major issues. Check out the new changes to OxygenOS 13 skin.

OxygenOS 13 brings new Aquamorphic Design theme colours for enhanced visual comfort. The system automatically applies the Aquamorphic Design philosophy to animations to make them natural and vivid. The update adds Shadow-Reflective Clock, with shadow simulating the orientation of the sun and moon. There is a new world clock widget that as the name suggests shows the time in different time zones.

The system is upgraded to Quantum Animation Engine 4.0, with a new behaviour recognition feature, which recognises complex gestures and provides optimised interactions. The update also optimises UI layers for a clearer and neater visual experience. The update adds large folders to the Home screen, and media playback controls, and optimises the Quick Setting experience. There is a new Sidebar Toolbox, where you can open a floating window inside apps for smooth operation.

As for personalisation, the Android 13 update optimises Bitmoji to offer more always-on Display animations. This also adds an automatic pixelation feature for chat screenshots and the system can identify and automatically pixelate profile pictures and display names in a chat screenshot to protect your privacy. The Android 13 update adds Dynamic Computing Engine to improve the system speed, stability, battery life, and app experience.
