  • Features, release timeline, and list of supported phones

    OnePlus has finally unveiled the OxygenOS 13, which has a water-inspired look and the company is calling it “Aquamorphic Design.” The new software update will soon be available as an open beta update for the OnePlus 10 Pro users. With the OxygenOS 13, OnePlus is promising to offer minimalist icons, animations, and a variety of forms as well as textures, for a better experience.

    The new software version will include the Private Safe 2.0, which basically allows people to store their files and documents in a private place, where no other app can access it. It will also bring spatial audio and Dolby Atmos support, improvements to the Nearby Share feature, and App Streaming. There will also be new Always On Display (AoD) screens and one will also be able to control their music apps via the AoD screen.

    People will also see a Sidebar Toolbox, which is a feature taken from ColorOS. It is basically a folder of apps that one will find on the right edge of the screen and this folder lets you quickly access the apps. The company is also improving the default home launcher with the OxygenOS 13. It has increased the icon size of folders, which will allow people to access some applications a little faster without opening the folder.

    To provide a comprehensive answer, I'll outline the typical process for releasing features on smartphones and provide a general timeline. I'll also give an example of supported phones. Features Release Timeline:
    1. Conceptualization and Planning: This is where the company decides on the features they want to introduce in their next phone or software update. This can take several months, involving market research, competitor analysis, and internal discussions.
    2. Development: Once the features are finalized, the development process begins. This involves designing, coding, and testing the new features. Depending on the complexity of the features, this can take several months to a year or more.
    3. Alpha and Beta Testing: After development, the features undergo alpha and beta testing phases. Alpha testing is done internally within the company, while beta testing involves releasing the features to a select group of users to gather feedback and identify any bugs or issues.
    4. Finalization and Integration: Based on the feedback received during testing, the features are refined and finalized. They are then integrated into the next software update or incorporated into the hardware of the next smartphone.
    5. Release: The new features are officially released to the public. This can happen through over-the-air software updates for existing phones or through the launch of new smartphones with the updated features.
    6. Support and Maintenance: After the release, the company continues to provide support and maintenance for the features. This includes releasing bug fixes, security patches, and updates to improve performance and add new functionalities.
