OnePlus unveiled the OxygenOS 13 with the OnePlus 10T 5G at its launch in New York today. The brand new OxygenOS is supposed to be impressed by nature and it features an Aquamorphic design. According to OnePlus, the Aquamorphic design actually means like water. The main focus of OxygenOS 13 is to deliver a bloat-free user interface and a burden-free experience.

OxygenOS 13: What’s new?
OxygenOS 13 is supposed to bring a revamped UI experience to OnePlus smartphone users, according to the company. Now app icons, notification splashes, and widgets will feature spherical edges. According to the company, spherical edges are relatively easier to fit than sharp edges. The duty supervisor will show the working applications with a floating impact. This impact can also be seen for widgets and app notifications.
OnePlus will be making changes to the always-on display (AOD) feature with OxygenOS 13. It has launched three new AOD UIs called Canvas AOD, Perception AOD, and Bitmoji AOD. Additionally, OnePlus has teamed up with Spotify to push the app widget to AOD. This can allow customers to easily switch between tracks and manage their music immediately from the AOD. Customers may also have access to a “meal provision” AOD mode, according to the company.
The Chinese language company can make a number of improvements to existing options. OxygenOS 13 will provide an improved Responsive Launcher, Zen Mode, and Quick Pair. The updated AI Booster is said to deliver 30% more smoothness, 20% faster app setup, and 10% faster app launches. It is claimed that the smart launcher also improves the administration efficiency of a person’s mobile phone. The sidebar window has also been improved, in keeping with the company. Bang on All will allow customers to quickly view all recently used apps, instruments and apps for easy entry. The Close by Share feature has also been improved with reduced latency and faster transfers, OnePlus says.
Google and OnePlus have collaborated to come up with a complicated Android security system. Users will be able to allow pop-ups to appear, and they will even have additional control over individual app notifications – which is a feature of Android 13. A Num Lock field with OxygenOS 13 will isolate information from different apps. The collaboration also helped OnePlus bring the audio change to the OxygenOS 13. OnePlus will bring a spatial audio feature to the all-new OxygenOS that adapts based on the direction and movement of a person’s head, which sounds like functions provided by Apple. and Samsung.
Availability of OxygenOS 13
OxygenOS 13 will be the first available on the OnePlus 10 Pro, according to the company. Later, the update will make its way to the new OnePlus 10T 5G. OnePlus only has to announce a specific launch schedule for OxygenOS 13, or which handsets – aside from these two smartphones – will be likely to get the update when it releases.
