Pete Lau, the CEO at OnePlus, has posted on Twitter that confirms two things. Firstly, the OxygenOS 11 based on Android 11 is incoming and it will be tagged along with an Always-On Display feature that OnePlus users have been eagerly waiting for years. But there’s more about any upcoming phone as well.
Talking about the OxygenOS 11, Pete posted a clock with the dial showing 11 o’clock which is a hint towards the upcoming operating system. Plus, it will have the Always-On Display (AOD) feature that has made Samsung devices premium while other OEMs have a similar kind of feature as well.

According to the folks at GSMArena, the AOD feature could be an OnePlus 8T series exclusive. On the other hand, it could be rolled out to other Android 11 eligible phones since the OnePlus lineup consists of AMOLED panels going as far as the OnePlus X.
To our surprise, a Geekbench listing has caught an unnamed OnePlus phone sporting Qualcomm Snapdragon 865. There’s already an upcoming Nord series smartphone that will host a Snapdragon 690 SoC so it could be this. This apparently hints that the listing is for OnePlus 8T which is an incremental model to the OnePlus 8 series.
The OnePlus 8 series was launched with Snapdragon 865 SoC and since T-series models usually get Plus variants of any chipset, this could be a Snapdragon 865+ mounted on the upcoming phone as well. It has scored a whopping 912 points on single-core and 3288 points on multi-core tests. It has 8GB of RAM, processor clocked at 1.80 GHz base frequency, and codenamed as “Kona” which is used by Snapdragon 865 so there’s still room for updates here.
Anyways, OxygenOS 11 with AOD feature is expected to arrive as a closed/open beta update this August or September so we don’t have to wait much. Moreover, the upcoming OS will be rolled out to OnePlus 6 and above where the latter was released in 2018 but given the pattern OnePlus follows, it is imminent.
