The OnePlus 7 and OnePlus 7T series will not receive the Always-on Display (AOD) feature in a stable version of the OS, according to a post in the OnePlus forum. The OnePlus 7 and 7T series received Android 11 in March this year, but the AOD feature was missing. Since then, users have wondered if the feature will be added to the phones later, but now it seems that this will not happen. The publication shows a response from the OnePlus support team, according to which the AOD experience does not meet the standards of a stable version of the OS.
IN OnePlus 7 discussion from the OxygenOS 11 series the end on the official forum, a user named “gdsingh94” shared a screenshot of what appears to be a message from OnePlus customer support. The message says that the AOD feature will not make its way to a stable version for OnePlus 7 and OnePlus 7T series. It is explained that the research and development team has put the AOD feature in open beta 3 firmware, but the experience of AOD does not meet the standards for a stable version, so it will not be added to the phones. If users want to experience AOD on their OnePlus 7 / 7T series phones, they will need to install open beta 4 firmware.
The OnePlus 7 / 7T series phones were updated to Android 11 in March in India and since then fans have been wondering if AOD will be added later. This news would be disappointing for those who were looking forward to the function, given that OnePlus North get it with your Android 11 update.
OnePlus added an AOD to the OnePlus Nord in the form of an Ambient display, which brought the Insight watch and Canvas options. Although the Canvas option is still present in the Ambient display settings of the OnePlus 7 / 7T series, it does not always stay on and only appears when you touch the screen or lift the phone.
Although the forum post seems official, the company has not publicly announced that it will not bring AOD to OnePlus 7 and OnePlus 7T series phones. Gadgets 360 turned to OnePlus for clarification and will update this space when we receive a response.
