OnePlus wants you to pitch a new feature of Oxygen OS and it will implement it
Do you have what it takes to design a smartphone UI feature? No, this isnít a new game show, OnePlus is challenging its fans to pitch a new feature for Oxygen OS.
But itís not as simple as ďX would be coolĒ, you need to go through a simplified version of the process that OnePlus product managers have do deal with every day.
If you want to participate, youíll have to prepare a PRD (product requirements document) to answer theses four key questions:
- Who are the users?
- What is the proposed function?
- What is the user value?
- If there are existing comparable functions in the smartphone industry, how is your proposed feature superior?
You will need to include details on how your feature is to be implemented as well as explain the logic behind it and provide sketches that follow the flow of the interface.
Hereís an example, written by Gary C. (it details the categorized tags feature in the app drawer). Gary and other members of the Oxygen OS team will be scrutinizing your ideas and will pick the best ones.
The winner will be announced by mid-March and the team will actually get to working on it! Once itís done, the company will reveal the feature at one of its launch events (and youíre getting a VIP invite with paid plane travel).
