The OnePlus 7 and OnePlus 7 Pro were launched with a couple of “exclusive” features. However, the company has announced that several of these features will be making its way to older OnePlus devices.
The OnePlus 5, OnePlus 5T, OnePlus 6, and OnePlus 6T will be receiving features such as the new Fnatic Mode, RAM Boost, Zen Mode, Screen Recorder, Quick Reply in Landscape, DC Dimming, as well as the long-anticipated Android Q update.
Fnatic Mode – A ‘gaming mode’ that increases performance and network connectivity while playing resource-heavy games.
Zen Mode – Allows only the dialer and camera to be used for 20 minutes; access to all other apps are denied.
Screen Recorder – Record whatever is on your screen with internal sound.
Quick Reply in Landscape – Reply text message in landscape mode without exiting the app you’re in. Useful for when you’re watching a video and don’t want to move away from it.
DC Dimming – Alternative method to adjust the screen brightness by changing the circuit power of the screen.
RAM Boost – Increases RAM utilization according to your usage.
With all these features ported over from the OnePlus 7 to older OnePlus devices, the only “exclusive” feature left is Nightscape 2.0. OnePlus hasn’t mentioned availability of these features, but we’re sure they’ll be slowly ported in by batches through different builds of OxygenOS.
