There are several new features in Oxygen OS 13, including a new design language.
OnePlus’ Oxygen OS Android skin offers a stock-like look with added functions. Oxygen OS 13 shares a lot of DNA with parent company Oppo’s Color OS. What’s new with the OnePlus skin?
OnePlus says Oxygen OS 13 is “aquamorphic” The design is “soothing, natural, and adaptable,” inspired by water. Oxygen OS 13 will be brighter in the morning and “intelligently shift” to a darker aesthetic at night.
The design echoes Samsung’s nature-inspired TouchWiz skin years ago. Screenshots imply a more restricted, performant nature theme than Samsung’s existing skin, but we’ll need to test it.
OXYGEN OS 13 New Features
OnePlus promises a new OxygenOS 13 design “inspired by water.”” Aquamorphic Design is the company’s design language.” The new design seems to move towards a ColorOS-like interface, something OnePlus has been criticised for. Softer, rounder window edges will improve the user interface’s appearance.
OxygenOS 13 also includes speed enhancements and new features. OnePlus will have an always-on display. OxygenOS 13 Always-On displays support Spotify and Bitmoji.

It works in the same way in that you can add applications or actions to it, and immediately start them by swiping the toolbox out.
Spatial Audio and Dolby Atmos compatibility, audio switch for effortlessly switching between Bluetooth headphones and earbuds, Nearby Share and App streaming for sharing the phone’s display with ChromeOS devices. OxygenOS 13 will also bring Private Safe 2.0, which safeguards data, documents, and media files in a virtual safe.
