However, OnePlus UX head, Crayon Hsieh, has some new information about the software which backs the high-end OnePlus 6T. According to the interview posted in the OnePlus forum, the OnePlus 6T will be coming with a new UI.
In the interview, Hsieh specifically stated that the device would have improved navigation gestures, new camera upgrades and an advanced Do Not Disturb mode.
Talking about the new gesture navigation, Hsieh mentions “whenever you swipe up in an app, the application window will follow your finger, making for a more natural experience.” The device’s new navigation gestures will add new tweaks like “a quick and easy substitute” to the opening recent apps.
Users will be able to switch recent apps with a quick flick from the bottom of the screen towards the right of your screen. Apart from that, the OnePlus device will also offer Google Assistant functionality in the power button itself. Holding the power button will activate Google Assistant in less than 0.5 sec.
Apparently, the OnePlus 6T device will also offer some AI feature to save power and CPU usage when the device is in sleep mode. The feature sounds very similar to the Adaptive battery of Android Pie. Now, we are not sure if Crayon is talking about the same feature or something else entirely.
Since most of the features appear to be part of Android Pie, which OnePlus 6T will come bundled with, its safe to assume that we might see the same features on other OnePlus devices. OnePlus has previously announced that all of its devices will be receiving Android Pie.
OnePlus 6T is already available for pre-booking for its Indian users on Amazon; the device is set to release on October 30.
