First look at OnePlus’s OxygenOS reveals a flat and colorful UI

by Joe 11


Just a few days back, we reported that OnePlus was planning to unveil its own OS. In this regard, it was even said that the company hired the whole IUNI OS team in December.

The company unveiled the name of the new ROM recently and it will be called as the OnePlus OxygenOS. While we are eagerly waiting to see what the company has in store for us on February 12, i.e. the date when the ROM will be unveiled, we have received a new leak which shows off some of the design elements of the new OxygenOS.

From the pictures, it looks like the company will focus on a flat UI design. The icons are flat and use simple shapes with a lot of different colors. The icons are all categorized according to their use, so you have a section of gaming apps, tools, and one for even social media.

Apart from the app drawer, we can see the OxygenOS weather app. Once again, the app interface looks clean with generous use of colors. Unfortunately, there’s not much information displayed in the app, but this probably isn’t the final version.

Anyways, the overall OxygenOS looks quite different than the Cyanogenmod ROM that was earlier used by the company’s OnePlus One flagship phone.

We expect to hear more information in the coming days, both officially and unofficially.

So, stay tuned for more updates.

    Isn’t this another IUNI OS?

    Hope not too much customised…

    Running away from the royalty and legal demands of Google & Microsoft are easy to understand. But it is also able to use the usual Google Playstore apps?

    Generally I avoid the software of the hardware manufacturer. I stay with my favourites on phones & tablets: Neo Launcher, Boat Browser (Internet), “All in One” utility, etc.

      playstore apps are in the screens.

    Yawn. Shitty company. Don’t expect anything else from their software venture. I’ll stick with CM12 builds on my OPO.

    me no-likey. I don’t blame OP for this, though I have very little faith in the company. I’ve been a member of their forum since March and got an early invite but passed on it. Too many unknowns and issues. Anyway, with their partnership with CM in the toilet, which i blame mostly on CM, they had to do something. But the main appeal to the OPO was the CM software. I don’t like the new look, but don’t matter, as I won’t ever own the phone

      You would never own the phone…..

  • Hi

    That X Music Icon is stolen from MusiXMatch

    This isn’t OxygenOS, you morons. This is HydrogenOS, the version of their software that goes ONLY to China, because they don’t have Google Services. The rest of the world gets REAL OxygenOS, which is almost pure Android 5.0. Maybe you should actually do some real reporting.

  • AuroraFlux

    This is NOT OxygenOS. This is HydrogenOS, the version of Android that only goes to China.

    I think those are just screenshots for marketing the OS. I highly doubt they are actual screenshots of the UI
