For now, there's not much information about the upcoming OS update. We're certain that the HydrogenOS 11 will be based on Android 11. However, since it's a China-bound update, it would skip Google Play services.

Apart from this, OnePlus CEO Pete Lau has been teasing the always-on display (AOD) for OnePlus smartphones. The always-on display feature was one of the most requested features by OnePlus users, even if it could consume as much as 300 to 500 mAh battery.

It was earlier reported that the always-on display would be available in the closed beta builds, expected to debut this month. The open beta would be rolling out in September.


The OS update is also expected to bring in visual improvements and new functions. The company is expected to introduce an interactive concept as well. OnePlus is expected to tease a couple of new features coming to the HydrogenOS 11. Do note, there might be a few exclusive features on the HydrogenOS, which may not make it to the OxygenOS update.
