Update: February 5, 2021 (11:40 AM ET): Today, OnePlus formally announced a second beta update for the OnePlus 7T and OnePlus 7T Pro. This second beta of Android 11 for the two phones brings along a slew of changes — including the long-awaited always-on display. Unfortunately, though, the AOD is only available on the 7T Pro.
The inclusion of an AOD option isn’t totally unexpected, but this is the first time people will actually be able to use it without hacking the phone in some way. It also strongly suggests that the feature will make it to the stable rollout of Oxygen OS 11. However, it’s unclear why the vanilla OnePlus 7T won’t get it. Hopefully, this comes with a future beta.
Here’s the full changelog for this rollout:
- Optimized the sliding effect of the dynamic wallpaper
- Improved power consumption in some scenarios
- Optimized the adjusting intensity of automatic brightness to bring a more smooth using experience
- Fixed the issue with the adapter not charging and using the headset at the same time
- Fixed the issue in which the battery icon is not displayed on the status bar
- Fixed the issue that ‘Tips & Support’ is not displayed in the Settings
- Fixed the small probability flashback issue with the camera when unlocking in professional mode
- Ambient Display
- Newly supported Always-on ambient display feature for OP7TPro (Go to: Settings – Utilities – OnePlus Laboratory – Always-on ambient display)
The launch of this second beta suggests that the stable Android 11 update may not be too far away now. But if you want to switch from the stable channel of Oxygen OS to the beta, it’s really not difficult. Follow our guide here!
