OnePlus 6T will offer a new UI experience
New features in OxygenOS on OnePlus 6T
In a community interview, OnePlus's resident software expert @Szymon K has confirmed a "whole new UI" for the upcoming flagship. However, it is unclear if the new UI will remain OnePlus 6T exclusive.
As for the changes, this OxygenOS will be the most "intuitive and distinctive" version with improved camera software, an advanced Do not Disturb mode, new Navigation Gestures, and more power efficiency.
New gesture-based navigation to offer a more natural experience
OnePlus says the new Navigation Gestures load faster, have smoother animations and feel more natural and intuitive.
So, when you swipe up in an app, the application window will follow your finger or for switching between two recent apps, you can now flick right from the bottom of the screen.
Further, Google Assistant can be activated by holding the power button for just 0.5 seconds.

OnePlus 6T's software will be more power efficient
However, to make the OS more power-efficient, OnePlus has added an "AI-based algorithm that will allow the phone to learn when you sleep, so it can minimize background usage and reduce power consumption accordingly."
