Note: OnePlus hasn’t shared any release timeline for these features, but you can expect more details in the future.

Here are a few reasons to reject some of the above features. OnePlus rejects the Dex feature because the company thinks “our fans use a smartphone in tandem with a computer, they mainly focus on three things: file transfer, notifications, and controlling the phone via the PC.”

For call recording feature: “The call recorder feature is available in India and China as of today. We have also added support for four more countries since last year, namely, UK, France, Bangladesh, and the Netherlands for OnePlus 6/6T, OnePlus 7/7 Pro, and OnePlus 7T/7T Pro on our Open Beta builds.”
