    With a fresh new design to empower more efficiency for your overall experience in big screen, OxygenOS is a step forward for both OnePlus and for our users. From our first OxygenOS 11’s Developer Preview back in August, where we shared an early version to our most technically-inclined community members, to this stable release, we’ve been gradually rolling out features to let our users first experience them and share feedback with our team. We have heard your voice – be it positive or negative – and squashed bugs and improved overall stability, providing users with a fast and smooth experience, in fresh yet familiar OxygenOS.

    The notification quick settings is still 2 rows though it was said it will be 3 rows in stable update. Also would love if there were more options to dark theme like full pitch black and greyish like. Most people prefer pitch black dark theme.
