OnePlus phones could get Always-on Display in Oxygen 11

It isn't just through simple feedback forms or surveys but through a system of letting users vote on their most requested feature, even if that feature actually went against OnePlus' recommendations. Such was the case for Always-on Display or AOD, a feature that may finally be coming to the company's phones in just a few months.

The next OnePlus device was almost certainly going to be the OnePlus 8T, if history served as guide for expectations in the near future.

OnePlus Nord for the US might come in a different form

OnePlus's latest smartphone may have just eclipsed the high-end premium OnePlus 8 and OnePlus 8 Pro. That despite its obviously mid-range specs and slightly worrying durability.

There is no such thing as a free lunch, however, especially in the smartphone business. Whatever cost-savings OnePlus was able to pull off naturally came at some other price, including ones that you hopefully will never see during the phone's lifetime.

OnePlus leaks hundreds of customer emails in accidental email blast

OnePlus leaks hundreds of customer emails in accidental email blast

Despite being the backbone of most Internet and even corporate communication, many consider email to be archaic and inflexible. There are many things that the format and technology don't and simply can't afford. One of those would be redacting or deleting emails that have already been sent, received, and read, a feature that OnePlus may now wish did exist considering how it accidentally revealed the emails of everyone that participated in what should have been a private and anonymous survey.
