OnePlus wants to bring the always-on display to its phones in the near future. While it’s been in the user’s wishlist for months, OnePlus will finally bring Always-On Display with OxygenOS 11 update later this year. The feature was teased by Pete Lau in one recent tweet. Keep in mind that Lau dies and doesn’t clearly state that the position is coming, but the conclusion can be made quite clear.
OnePlus will roll out Always-On Display on its phones with OxygenOS 11 based on Android 11
OnePlus has previously committed to being the Always-On Display feature for its OnePlus phones. Now, with Android 11-based OxygenOS 11, the company will uncover the feature. It is the most requested feature of the community that we are all looking forward to. To be honest, I personally come from a Samsung phone and find the Always-On Display pretty handy, and it’s just sad not to have it on my OnePlus 7T.
The feature was added to the OnePlus roadmap in March after it passed initial energy testing. The company ensures that Always-On Display is perfectly optimized. OnePlus explained that the Always-On display consumes about 350 to 500 mAh of battery, which is a deduction of one to two hours from your daily use.

Nevertheless, OnePlus believes that the feature is necessary for users. At the moment, OnePlus has not mentioned a release date for the feature or when Android 11 based OxygenOS 11 will be available to users. We expect Android 11 to drop on September 8, and we’ll likely see the feature roll out to users afterward. OnePlus released OxygenOS 10 last September, and if it’s the same this year, we’ll see OxygenOS 11 in the same time frame.
That’s all. What do you think of the position?
