Here's what Android Q DP3 brings to the OnePlus 6, 6T, 7, and 7 Pro
On its forums yesterday afternoon, OnePlus announced Android Q Developer Preview 3 for the OnePlus 6, 6T, 7, and 7 Pro. In this case, OnePlus’ Android Q Developer Preview 3 is the equivalent of Google’s Android Q Beta 5.
Included is Game Space, a replacement for the existing game mode. Game Space provides quick access to installed games, along with Fnatic mode and the “graphics optimization” settings. The feature also shows you how long you’ve played installed games for.
There are no new features included in Game Space. The biggest difference between it and the existing game mode is the visual overhaul.
Also included in Android Q DP3 are customization settings. These settings have their own section and include tweaks for the lock screen and system. For example, you can pick from three preset themes, change the accent color, use other icon packs, change the font, tweak the color options for the Horizon light (edge lighting), and more.
Next up is a new smart display mode for the ambient display. With the new mode, OxygenOS can show your music, weather, calendar events, and more when it thinks it’s appropriate to do so. Unfortunately, there’s still no always-on display mode in Android Q DP3.
Finally, the built-in screen recorder can now record in 4K (3,840 x 2,160) resolution. You can also increase the bitrate to 24Mbps and record at 60fps.
