OxygenOS 13 steals the show from the OnePlus 10T with the first official announcements about availability, new design and features in the new UI.
OnePlus is not sitting still in this sweltering summer. After the presentation of the OnePlus 10T, which will be launched on August 25; the manufacturer has unveiled the new version of its user interface: OxygenOS 13.
The first smartphone to receive the update to OxygenOS 13 is the OnePlus 10 Pro. Then we have the new OnePlus 10T, with OxygenOS 12, which will get the update to OxygenOS 13 before the end of 2022. The OnePlus 9 and OnePlus 8 series and certain models from OnePlus Nord will follow later.
With OxygenOS 13, OnePlus changes its home interface to an “aquamorphic” design, which is notably distinguished by a “smooth and rounded” aesthetic. At this point, the brand is following the path mapped out by Google, which has just tried to smoothen the Android 13 UI on which OxygenOS 13 is based.
OnePlus OxygenOS 13 is coming
OnePlus explains that it was inspired by nature to create this new design, with a simplified interface and hoping to provide a more relaxed mobile experience. With this in mind, of course, Zen mode is making a comeback. The manufacturer also emphasizes its Always-on Display option, made possible by a smart personalization function for dynamic information display.
OnePlus also announces the latest version of its Hyperboost for mobile gaming, with the choice between different performance modes to enjoy the best gaming experience or to save battery power. We also have a Smart Launcher, which promises a more intuitive interface where folders are dynamically resized. With artificial intelligence, you can manage the user interface automatically, from widgets to applications and notifications.
With OxygenOS 13, OnePlus takes advantage of even better Near Share, the feature for sharing content with nearby Android and Windows devices. The brand promises faster transfers and an improved user experience. Finally, there will be a OnePlus style Fast Pair function for wireless connection of the smartphone with audio devices. However, the differences with Google’s Fast Pair are not very clear yet.
