OnePlus 7 and the OnePlus 7 Pro have been launched and they have some of the latest technologies and features with them. They have already managed to impress many with their design, display, features and price. One among the impressive features of the OnePlus 7 Pro and PnePlus 7 is Zen Mode. The Chinese company has confirmed that it will be bringing the Zen Mode feature to OnePlus 6 and the OnePlus 6T. Both the OnePlus 6 and the OnePlus 6T will be receiving the new Zen Mode via a software update. Other than the new feature, the company has confirmed that it won’t bring the Nightscape 2.0 camera mode introduced in the OnePlus 7 Pro.
Speaking about the Zen Mode, it is a feature introduced for the first time in the OxygenOS for OnePlus 7-series. This feature follows Google’s Digital Wellbeing initiative and it works in such a way that it makes the smartphone unusable for everything for 20 minutes. It means no photos, no messages, no email, and no social media; it completely cuts off the user from the smartphone. According to the company, this feature will let the users experience and appreciate the outside world or the physical world rather than being stuck in the digital world.
The company has also said that once activated, the Zen Mode can’t be cancelled and it mutes all the notification for the duration the mode is active i.e. 20 minutes. But even when the Zen Mode is active, the users will be able to receive the incoming calls or make emergency calls. Besides calls, all the other apps will be disabled except for the camera. Once this mode is active, it can’t be un-activated and even restarting the phone doesn’t get it out of the Zen Mode.
Although the company has confirmed that this new feature will be coming to the OnePlus 6 and the OnePlus 6T, but they haven’t given the exact timeline when it will be available.
Other than that, the OnePlus 7 Pro has also received a better and upgraded version of the Nightscape mode – the Nightscape 2.0. This new camera feature will allow the users to take better low-light images. In a way, it is similar to Google Pixel’s Night Sight. But the company has also said that this feature will be limited to the OnePlus 7-series smartphones only.
