    I noticed when I unlock my phone it has an notification LED simulation.
    First it makes a a circle around the camera and then a led dot simulation.

    Are there settings for this option and why does this led only show on wake-up and not on a locked screen?

    You must have enabled face unlock. That animation is used to show that the front camera is being used. The same is observed while using the front camera in the camera app

    They are working on that. The idea has been accepted in Ideas 2.0 campaign

    That is great news - I upgraded from the OnePlus 5 to the 8T, and was very surprised and disappointed to see that a notification light was missing 8T. It is one of the most useful things on a phone - something you would expect a phone to have - and I couldn't understand why the 8T was missing something that the 5 had.

    The feature isn't present on the 8T due to the extremely small bezel size. It is difficult to fit in an LED there.

    I definitely would prefer to have a bigger bezel than no notification light. Or possibly the LED could be fitted in screen, like the front facing camera, but on the other side

    That might be true, but then why no solution like Notify Buddy that simulates a LED?
    Whatever solution, to have a phone lying dead like a brick while several mails and messages are waiting seems to be the worst choice you can make.

    AOD is ok, but not for notifications. What is needed on the 8T is a light that flashes when you get a notification, and keeps flashing until you have seen the notification, it can also be used for charging so is red when charging and then green when charged. The OnePlus 5 had a notification light, for the OnePlus 8T it is almost like it was forgotten

    I was due to upgrade from my op6 last year but decided to hold off because of this notification led nonsense. I think one plus and others(Samsung) are forgetting that these devices are actually phones. The led is truly an essential little piece of the puzzle.

    Hey,

    Any further information about the implementation?

    AOD is not good for real time notification.

    I came from a 5T and the led notification is essencial.

    There are option like install apk notifications but they drain the battery.

    When will be this option implemented?

    Whenever OPPO overlords decide to, now that the codebase is integrated.
