‘Fnatic Mode’ on OnePlus phones is now called ‘Pro Gaming Mode’


Lately, almost all Android smartphone OEMs have been shipping their devices with ‘Game Mode’. OnePlus introduced this feature with the launch of the OnePlus 7 series. The company partnered with Fnatic, an eSports team for this feature. Hence, the game mode on OnePlus smartphones is known as ‘Fnatic Mode’. But not anymore as OnePlus’ collaboration with Fnatic has come to an end.


Chinese smartphone maker OnePlus became the global sponsor of the Fnatic e-sports team in early 2019. A few months later, Fnatic Mode was introduced in the OnePlus 7 series with wallpapers and an easter egg.

This mode was also made available for future phones as well as old devices up to the OnePlus 5. Now, with the end of this partnership after two years (via XDA Developers), the handset maker has started removing the Fnatic branding.

This means all the gaming features will continue to exist but the branding has been now changed to ‘Pro Gaming Mode’ instead of ‘Fnatic Mode’. The new name is currently live on the OnePlus 7 and OnePlus 7T series running OxygenOS 11 Open Beta 3 update.

OnePlus has confirmed that Fnatic branding will be removed from all handsets starting from the OnePlus 6 series. Interestingly, the OnePlus 5 and OnePlus 5T will continue to have the older ‘Fnatic Mode’ branding as these phones no longer receive software updates as they have reached the end of their support.


That said, we can expect the upcoming OnePlus 9 series to be the first OnePlus smartphones to ship ‘Pro Gaming Mode’ out of the box.
