Work Life Balance
Building on the idea of maintaining equilibrium between living in the moment and spending time on your phone, the new work-life balance mode helps you segregate your office life from your personal time. Completely customizable, the app will let you define when you are at work and when not.
Smart SMS app
OnePlus might be a bit late to the game but this is a feature that most users will appreciate. With the upcoming Smart SMS update, the messaging app in Oxygen OS will be able to detect and sort out text messages on the basis of content. Be it movie tickets or hotel reservations, the messenger app will highlight key elements so that you don’t have to rely on the cryptic descriptions found in text confirmations.
We also caught a quick glance at a feature that lets you track packages directly from a text message. OnePlus claims that Smart SMS will work across 39 different content categories. Xiaomi’s MIUI has a very similar feature built in that performs remarkably well. While there are a number of third party apps that can perform this function, it will be great to see it integrated directly into the operating system.
We suspect that this feature will be similar to Mi Roaming on Xiaomi phones. The services uses a virtual SIM that essentially takes over the second SIM slot of the phone and lets you connect to local operators while traveling. With the number of affordable roaming plans available these days, success for OnePlus Roaming will depend entirely on how cost-effective the plans are.
Cricket is almost a religion in India and the latest update adds a neat feature to woo that audience. OnePlus phones have a shelf feature integrated into the leftmost pane on the homescreen. This single shelf can display memos, car parking location, icon shortcuts and very soon, the latest cricket scores. The company is partnering with ESPNCricInfo to pull in the current scores for live matches.
We’ve been told to expect an OTA update in June with all the latest features designed for India. Alongside the OnePlus 7 and 7 Pro, the OnePlus 6 and 6T will also be receiving the features as an update.
What are your thoughts on OnePlus building a custom ROM for India? Would you rather have them stay as close to stock as possible or do you like the new MIUI like approach of building a very unique flavor of Android? Let us know in the comments section.
