Every year, OnePlus comes up with a new version of OxygenOS with some not-so-major tweaks. On the same lines, OnePlus is now building a new version of the software, and it's time for us to see what it may look like.
The winner of OnePlus' Product Manager Challenge, Léandro Tijink, submitted some amazing renders, showing an entirely new UI and improved UX of OxygenOS. As a part of the prize for the challenge, OnePlus pledged to implement his ideas into a future version of OxygenOS. So let's take a look at some of his ideas -New & Improved Setup Menu
Currently, the setup menu of OxygenOS is more or less identical to stock Android's setup menu. It looks very basic at the moment, but Tijink's design focuses on improvements to make it look more welcoming. The design, as you can see, lets you see more languages, gives you the ability to set the system-wide accent colour, and more. Take a look -

The ambient display will give you the basic information like the time, date, and notifications, and you can tap the display to get more info associated with each notification. The ambient display will also wake up to show new notifications, however, everything else will remain hidden.

As for the lock screen, there aren't a lot of changes, but there are a lot of rounded edges. It hasn't been changed all that much, and it's probably because it wasn't too bad, to begin with.OnePlus Launcher & Other Changes
OnePlus Shelf, which comes as a part of the default launcher, can turn out to be very productive if used properly. Well, Tijink design imagines that space to be a lot more efficient, and hey, he made it look good at the same time. Who wouldn't want an AMOLED black mode for the shelf?
Other aspects of the OxygenOS launcher also appear to be tweaked. Things like the app drawer, hidden space, and all the first-party apps have been made to look consistent with the rest of the system.

As of now, it's hard to tell which of Tijink's ideas will be implemented but OnePlus did say that it will consider Tijink's vision and add them in the future version of OxygenOS. These renders look amazing and it would be interesting to see the ones which OnePlus decides to pick. You can head over to Tijink's custom page to check out all his renders.
