The initial rollout started with OxygenOS 10.0 installed on top of Android 10. Well, this time around, the company is pushing out OxygenOS 10.0.1. The company did not really elaborate on what bugs were spotted in the initial build.
The changelog for OxygenOS 10.0.1 is the same as for OxygenOS 10.0. OnePlus basically listed all the features that it added with OxygenOS 10.0 and Android 10. This is not exactly that odd, as OxygenOS 10.0.1 is just a hotfix update.

This update brings many changes to OnePlus' handsets
New gesture navigation has also been added. That horizontal line which is placed at the bottom of the display can now be utilized. It's not identical to Google's implementation, but it's very similar, and possibly even better. OnePlus allows you to remove that horizontal line, if you want, and still keep left and right edge swipes.
OnePlus' very own gestures navigation solution is still present here, for those of you who prefer that. If you don't like gesture navigation in general, on-screen buttons are also present.
You can now block spam by keywords in Messages, if you want. This is a very welcome feature for those of you who are getting plenty of spam.

On top of all that, the "Game Space" feature is also here. This feature joins all your favorite games in one place for easier access. OnePlus says that this will offer a "better gaming experience" to users.
The OnePlus 7 and 7 Pro were introduced earlier this year, back in May. They are no longer the latest flagships the company had released, as the OnePlus 7T series smartphones landed not long ago.
The OnePlus 7 and 7 Pro are still on the same playing field as the OnePlus 7T phones, though. They are almost as powerful, especially the OnePlus 7 Pro, and this update only brings them closer together.
