From 2016 onwards, OnePlus uses AMOLED screen in its mobile phones. However, four years have passed and we still have not seen an OnePlus with Always On Display. Fortunately, that – as it turns out – is about to change, with Pete Lau, CEO of OnePlus, revealing via twitter that the integration of AOD into the company’s mobile phones is imminent. Apparently, this functionality will debut with OxygenOS 11.
Although Lau has not given details, the image of an analog clock suggests that it will be one of the options for the information displayed on the screen.
OxygenOS 10 arrived in September 2019 with Android 10 as its base, and version 11 is expected to arrive relatively soon after Android 11 is official. OnePlus has previously indicated that beta testing for always-on display functionality could start in August.
Ever-active display technology has been available from major smartphone manufacturers for years, so OnePlus will do nothing but follow the trend. Without a doubt, it will be very useful functionality to be able to check at a glance if you have any pending notification.
Although the always-on display features take advantage of AMOLED displays to minimize the impact on battery life, it still consumes more power than leaving the display off. Still, it’s better to have the option than not to have it.
