OnePlus OxygenOS 12 (Android 12) Features

The latest OxygenOS 12 comes with the recent codebase integration with ColorOS, OxygenOS 12 keeps our fast and smooth DNA while delivering a fully upgraded experience on a more stable and power-saving system with solid backend support. Together with a refreshing UI and a great set of new features, OxygenOS 12 brings a more well-rounded experience that streamlines users’ day-to-day work and enhances digital wellbeing. Get to meet them below.

New Zen Mode

Zen Mode and the newly-introduced Private Safe are perfect examples of this. We created a new design around light and shadow, providing a sense of security and mental comforts through the visual changes.

Geometric Deconstruction

OnePlus further simplified the visuals in OxygenOS 12 based on geometric deconstruction. Through more straightforward typographies users can easily get key messages, making OxygenOS 12 more inclusive and relatable for users from different cultures and regions.


Based on simplicity, we improved details to provide a more premium feel by adding shadows, subtle gradients and customizing each visual according to user scenarios, building a high-end and beautiful interface on OxygenOS 12.

Shelf & OnePlus Scout

The Shelf you know and love is getting fully upgraded on OxygenOS 12 with a wider range of customizations for you to create the experience that best suits your needs. The brand-new Shelf can be customized with feature cards of different sizes and background images, allowing you to group features and personalize the Shelf layout just like you want it. Inside the Shelf, the step counter card is upgraded into a Health card, which can also be connected to your OnePlus Watch, giving more straightforward access to health information like Calories or Heart rate.

Three Dark Mode Style

OxygenOS 12 introduced a new three-style dark mode which is already available in Realme UI 2.0 and ColorOS 11. Now OnePlus users can change dark mode: Gentle — Medium — Enhanced.

Games – Toolbox 2.0

With OxygenOS 12, we bring these great features together with upgraded Toolbox 2.0 to all OnePlus global users, taking the OnePlus gaming experience to next level. It supports Voice Modulator in five popular games (PUBG/CODM/LOLM/FreeFire/Fortnite) enabling you to change your voice during in-game chats, protecting your privacy while adding more fun to the game.

Canvas AOD 2.0

Among features that OnePlus brought to our users, Canvas AOD is one of the most popular. The newly-introduced Canvas AOD 2.0 has already been hotly anticipated during our OEF events and we are delighted to finally show this to more users with OxygenOS 12.

We optimized the feature based on the original functionality, adding a variety of new brushed and line colors for better customization. The selection of photos and adjustments on the final effect has become more flexible, as it adapts to different sizes of images and supports image scaling. Meanwhile, users can erase lines which does not fit in properly to provide a much more realistic but personalized overall result.

Improved Protection

Previously, OnePlus brought a set of information security features to our users. Now, we further improved the protection mechanism and streamlined data storage access, making it easier for users to sort personal files. The data stored in the Private Safe is isolated from other apps while remaining personally accessible. Users can keep personal files such as photos, videos, audios, and documents in the Private Safe securely all through one access.
