SystemUI APK also includes new strings hinting at a special Pac-Man Always on Display clock and wireless charging support.

<string name="aod_clock_default_style_pc">aod/aod_layout_0090016.xml</string>
<string name="kgd_wireless_pm_charging_anim_name">pm_charge</string>
<string name="kgd_wireless_pm_charging_fadein_anim_name">pm_charge_fadein</string>
<string name="kgd_wireless_pm_charging_fadeout_anim_name">pm_charge_fadeout</string>

OxygenUpdater also found new strings in the updated calculator APK (v2.0.16), suggesting that the Pac-Man-themed device will have more content related to the game hidden across the stock apps.

<string name="pacman_permission_text">Oops! Nice try. But there’s still more fun PAC-MAN content waiting to be unlocked. Try again when you find it all.</string>
<string name="button_ok">OK</string>

It isn’t clear which upcoming OnePlus device will get the Pac-Man treatment. A new string in the Settings APK suggests that it could feature the Snapdragon 778G SoC, making it a mid-range device in the Nord lineup. Will have to wait and watch.
