    Allow me to provide an alternative changelog for the following points

    Should be "Introduced back time watermark feature" which was not present on OB 1 due to an old APK being used whilst latest stable APK had the feature already live. (Thanks @adhirajsinghchauhan for checking on his device after I went through strings difference). Also not mentioned, but some camera filters should be back too, since the relevant strings weren't present in OB 1 Camera APK.

    version_umber.png filters.png timestamp.png timestamp_2.png

    Should be "Updated old built in Gallery APK to 4.0.131 version". As of writing, latest APK on PlayStore stable track is 4.0.152 whilst beta is 4.0.167. Considering PlayStore updates are automatic, I fail to see a point at mentioning this in OxygenOS changelog since most users are most likely already on a newer version than built in one. (Thanks @Tefzors for checking on his device PlayStore stable APK version number)

    version_number.png Screenshot_20210319-190314.jpg

    Should be "Updated built in Zen Mode to version". as that APK already rolled out to PlayStore stable at least two weeks ago https://forums.oneplus.com/threads/...new-medals-new-challenges-new-prizes.1394953/

    Other changes not mentioned:

    Added back SystemUI and Settings strings related to Bitmoji AOD that were not present in OB 1. Not sure if feature is still not live though.


    One may wonder what is the point of presenting as new features already live/that got reintroduced as missing in OB 1, besides creating hype straight before 9-series event in order to maximise sales.

    Bug with telegram notifications of the following nature. On the locked screen, a notification comes from one user, I do nothing. After that, another user writes to me, but on the locked screen I see a message from the previous user, not from another one, which should be. I tried reinstalling the app, resetting the telegram notification settings, resetting the cache - nothing helps

    Nice list of fixes. I still have font issue though, see printscreen.
    Text cut in the bottom right corner. Has to do with no bottom bar.
    Also, please be the good guys and add support for 48MP in PRO mode, that would mean OnePlus is one of the few that actually supports that, i don't know any brand supporting it. The phone has the hardware, why not use it. said:
    Thanks for the really quick updates, and i love the One hand GUI being a former Samsung user, was really surprised to see that available after the switch from S10.
    Keep it up Oneplus. 👍 You have my respect so far.
