OnePlus reveals list of features it’s considering for future OxygenOS releases

Horizon light customisation, ultra-wide camera video recording support, charging sound effect and more.

The OnePlus 7 Pro is the fastest Android smartphone currently in the market with an impressive display. However, the camera wasn’t the best considering the hardware or lenses it was packing. Although the camera wasn’t terrible, it couldn’t match up with its competitors in the same and even lower price segment.
