OnePlus 7 and OnePlus 7 Pro receiving Android 10-based OxygenOS 10.0 update
OnePlus was one of the few companies that released an Android 10 beta build around the same time Google launched the new OS early this month. Thankfully, it didn't take the company too long to bring the final build to some of its flagship smartphones.

The Chinese handset maker is now rolling out the highly-anticipated Android 10-based OxygenOS 10.0 update to the OnePlus 7 and OnePlus 7 Pro. You can find the main new features and improvements below, but for more details check out OnePlus' forum post.

  • Upgraded to Android 10
  • Brand new UI design
  • Enhanced location permissions for privacy
  • New customization feature in Settings allowing you to choose icon shapes to be displayed in the Quick Settings

Full Screen Gestures
  • Added inward swipes from the left or right edge of the screen to go back
  • Added a bottom navigation bar to allow switching left or right for recent apps

Game Space
  • New Game Space feature now joins all your favorite games in one place for easier access and better gaming experience

Smart display
  • Intelligent info based on specific times, locations and events for Ambient Display (Settings - Display - Ambient Display - Smart Display)

  • Now possible to block spam by keywords for Message (Messages - Spam - Settings -Blocking settings)

The update is delivered OTA (over the air) in stages, which means the update will be received by a limited number of users today. A broader rollout will kick off in a few days if no critical issues are found.

If you're using an older OnePlus smartphone, you're probably wondering when you'll be able to update it. According to OnePlus, more details about its Android 10 plans will be revealed on October 10 when the company scheduled the OnePlus 7T and 7T Pro launch event.
