Always-on Display Feature

Always on display feature

Always-on Display is really cool feature that you get with Oxygen OS 11. This feature works perfectly with AMOLED display because it turns on the pixel only that are in use and the rest of the pixels are turned off hence screen looks pure black. Earlier, OnePlus devices have an Ambient display feature which is now replaced by Always-On Display with Oxygen OS 11 update. This feature will let you various choices of clock styles on the main display as well as it displays dates, time, and pending notifications with a battery indicator.
