Oxygen OS 12, according to OnePlus in a press release, is said to have been optimized in three ways: work, rest and play. The Chinese manufacturer wants to create a “stress-free space to relax”.
Oxygen OS 12 with new user interface and functions
The most noticeable innovation is likely to be the revised user interface which OnePlus calls “Burdenless Design”. Among other things, light changes and clear hierarchies should increase readability and user-friendliness, and unnecessary distractions should be minimized. The typography has also been simplified so that users can “easily understand the most important messages”. Redesigned system icons are also part of the update.
Away from the refreshed user interface Oxygen OS 12 also offers new features. For example, the shelf has been revised, which can be equipped with feature cards in various sizes and background images. A new step counter card is also included.
There are now formatting tools in the notes, the dark mode can be set to three levels and there are new brush colors for the canvas function on the always-on display. Gamers are happy about the drilled out Toolbox 2.0, with which their own voice can be changed in the game. According to OnePlus, data security has also increased.
