Hey Tim! OnePlus claims that those two pins "...let the system recognize the StyleSwap and change the theme on H2OS.". In other words, H2OS will change the system theme to match the StyleSwap cover that you have attached.

There was a theory that the pins were used as some sort of proprietary mobile payment system in countries such as China and Korea... not 100% sure though

It's for HydrogenOS!

It changes the theme to the look of your StyleSwap Cover :)
