There was a Reddit thread revealing a deleted reply from OnePlus stating that the company's technical team had decided to remove the feature at the last moment because of its ill-effects on the overall battery life of the phone.

However, after receiving some backlash from its community, the company has said that it will be bringing it back with Android P beta.
