OnePlus introduced the Always-On Display feature with Android 11-based OxygenOS 11, which comes pre-installed on the OnePlus 8T. T-Mobile's 8T (aka 8T+ 5G) was an exception as it didn't have it out of the box, but it is now receiving the OxygenOS 22.214.171.124.KB09CB update that enables the feature.
