OnePlus wants you to design its next OxygenOS feature (Update: Winner announced)

OnePlus design an Oxygen OS feature logo.

Update, March 11, 2019 (1:02PM EST): OnePlus announced ^(https://forums.oneplus.com/threads/pmchallenge-and-the-winner-is.1008958/) that Léandro Tijink is the winner of the company’s Product Manager Challenge.

Tijink’s entry features a top-to-bottom refresh of OxygenOS’ aesthetics and tweaks to existing features, such as the ambient display and the app drawer. Tijink went so far as to build a website ^(https://cdn.rovota.com/media/oneplus/pmchallenge/) that includes 47 screenshots of his redesigned OxygenOS.

Because he won the contest, Tijink will get to work with OnePlus ^( https://www.appmarsh.com/) and implement some of these ideas in a future OxygenOS update. Also, Tijink will get an all-expenses-paid trip to OnePlus’ next launch event.


Original article, February 4, 2019 (7:02 AM EST): OnePlus has announced a new competition to help build the next great feature of its operating system, OxygenOS. In an email we received earlier today, OnePlus said it would be looking to its community forums for an idea it will implement in an upcoming version of its software.

Until February 22, OnePlus will seek out user-created concepts and inventions as part of its so-called Product Manager Challenge (#OnePlusPMChallenge). The best feature will be revealed alongside a new device, and its creator will be flown to the launch to “see their idea come to life.” They’ll also receive the device they contributed to for free.
