As the name suggests, Zen Mode is a mode on the OnePlus 7 Pro (will also be available for OnePlus 6 and OnePlus 6T via software update) which lets you cut-down your smartphone usage by turning disabling almost all features (except for the camera and emergency calls).
If you turn on Zen Mode, you will not be able to use your smartphone for 20 minutes, and there is no way to come out of the Zen Mode before the countdown (Even restarting the smartphone will not work).
With Zen Mode, you can receive calls and take photographs using the camera app. Even to open the camera app, you need to make a long swipe from the bottom right corner of the smartphone.
On the top right corner, you can see the time and date, and in the exact center, there is a countdown timer, which shows the remaining time.
