Android has always had high customization. Whether it’s Android launcher and icon packs or menu-customizing apps and more, there’s a lot you can do with your Android phone. Now if you have a OnePlus phone, you will be glad to know that in addition to all the customization options OxygenOS already offers, you will also get a theme store with the OxygenOS 12 update very soon.
The theme store announcement comes via the OnePlus forums, where the company announced that it will be available with the next major OS update, which would be OxygenOS 12, which means it’s not too far off (hopefully) .
Theme stores are not a new idea, in fact Samsung has quite a gigantic catalog of themes (both free and paid) in its own theme store for One UI. There are plenty of MIUI featured themes out there too. However, bringing it to OnePlus phones has been one of the main demands of the community, and the company is finally doing it.
It is unclear if the OnePlus theme store will be a free affair or if paid themes will also be available in the store. There is more likely a combination of free and paid themes, but we will have to wait for the release of OxygenOS 12 to learn more.
Meanwhile, the company is hosting an online Open Ears Forum for the theme store. So, if you have any ideas about the OxygenOS 12 theme store, complaints, suggestions, or anything, you should definitely apply to be a part of the forum. Interested persons can apply through the forum (or by clicking on this link).
The OEF event will take place on May 18, from 5:30 pm to 7:30 pm IST. Those selected to be part of the OEF will also receive gifts, including a Hasselblad postcard, an OEF pin, and a t-shirt.
