After Google released Android 11 stable builds for Pixels, OnePlus also made OxygenOS 11 Open Beta 1 available for OnePlus 8 and OnePlus 8 Pro. Since it is public, anyone can install it unlike beta builds from OPPO, realme, and Xiaomi, which require registration and approval. Just like with every new build software, this one too includes strings revealing an upcoming new feature and a product.
OxygenOS 11 – Up to 8K 960fps video recording
Folks over at XDA Developers performed a teardown of the OnePlus Camera app that comes bundled with OxygenOS 11 Beta 1 for OnePlus 8/8 Pro. They found out that the company is working on 8K video recording up to 960fps.
For those unaware, the Spectra 480 ISP present in current-gen Snapdragon 865/865+ is only capable of recording 720p videos at 960fps. As for 8K, it can only handle 30fps and this feature is available in a number of smartphones released this year.
In fact, this ISP doesn’t even natively support 960fps in 1080p and 4K resolutions but the strings mention all of them. So OnePlusQualcomm flagship SoC with a better ISP.
A few days back, a render of OnePlus 8T was unearthed from the OxygenOS Android 11 Beta 4 build. The file was named “oneplus_8t.webp”. But in the latest OxygenOS 11 Open Beta 1, the company has renamed the file to “oneplus_kebab.webp”.
Also, the strings from the Settings app suggest two variants of OnePlus 8T – kebab for Canada and India & kebabt for the US.
OnePlus Buds Z
Similarly, XDA Senior Member Some_Random_Username found strings mentioning the unreleased OnePlus Buds Z. Since the company uses Z branding for its lite/budget version of earphones (e.g., OnePlus Bullets Wireless Z), this could be a cheaper variant of already available OnePlus Buds TWS.
