The developer preview 3 for the OxygenOS 11 based on Android 11 OS was recently released for the OnePlus 8 and the OnePlus 8 Pro. Though it is not the final build and not recommended to install on a daily driver, many users have installed the same to check out the new features.

 
OxygenOS 11 Features Explained; Inspired By OneUI?

A large set of users are now started to complain about how OxygenOS 11 has been inspired by the OneUI from Samsung. Some people are happy about it, while some are concerned about the direction of the OxygenOS in the coming days.

People are now criticizing how OnePlus is moving away from stock Android user experience, especially on the OxygenOS 11. In fact, the OnePlus 8 and the 8 Pro also comes with Facebook installer app (bloatware) which means the company could include more third-party apps in the coming days.

What's New With OxygenOS 11?

Though every OnePlus smartphone from the OnePlus 3 came with an AMOLED screen, these devices didn't support always-on display and the company is introducing the same with the OxygenOS 11.

OxygenOS 11 also introduces a revamped dialler/caller app where the name and the number of contacts will be highlighted. It also comes with a new and improved dark mode that further helps to improve the battery life of the smartphone.

OxygenOS 11 now distinguishes notifications depending on the app. A notification from a messaging app will be considered as conversations, whereas a notification from the Play Store will be considered as a silent notification.

The built-in gallery app also gets a major revamp and can now smartly classify photos based on things, places, and people. And it can also create short videos from trips and tours.

The stock weather app now offers more insights with colorful animations to match the present weather of the specific place. Then comes the Zen Mode, which now offers more control over how you can cut down the smartphone usage.

One feature that OxygenOS 11 has borrowed from OneUI is the one-handed mode. With smartphones getting bigger and bigger, it is very hard to reach the entire screen using a single hand and this feature will help to achieve the same.

This feature was first introduced by Samsung via the OneUI update and OnePlus has now incorporated the same on the OxygenOS 11. I personally feel this is the feature that every smartphone marker should introduce on phones with a screen bigger than 6-inch.
