Code found in Oxygen OS 15 beta shows a new ‘Privacy Watermark’ feature for OnePlus phones

OnePlus is a part of the Android Partner Program, and now it has released an Android 15 beta preview for the OnePlus 12. This release doesn’t encompass the entire feature set of Oxygen OS 15 based on Android 15. However, we can catch glimpses of upcoming features based on code snippets.

One such code snippet found recently relates to Privacy Watermark, an upcoming privacy feature for OnePlus smartphones (and likely Oppo and Realme phones too). OnePlus enthusiast 1NormalUsername has found new strings in the code for the Settings app, that document the “Privacy Watermark” feature. It will reportedly be available through the OnePlus Photos app.

Text from the description found in the code:

So we expect the feature to work according to the description unearthed in the code. It’s not clear yet how this watermark will prevent misuse of documents. As with any watermark, it should appear embedded in the image, and to get it removed, you’ll need specific software or some serious computer knowledge.

Right now, you can add the famous Hasselblad watermark or a more generic watermark in the Photos app > Edit > Watermark.

But that’s not all found in the code this time. Also, OnePlus could be upgrading the Pixelate feature. In Oxygen OS 14, you can manually pixelate any part of an image. You can use this on screenshots that you want to share but you want to conceal a certain part of it. The update would simplify the process down to a click for all images, not just screenshots.
