OPPO claims that ColorOS 7 will reduce app startup time by up to 40% and increase the system resource efficiency by 30%. New features are said to include a system-wide dark mode and a new Focus mode to encourage users to get away from their phones for a bit, similar to Zen Mode on OnePlus phones. Oppo is bringing a more rounded design combined with lighter colors and support for re-sizing. There are also new wallpapers, system sounds, and animations.
The new OS will have a new drive mode, where users can easily connect their smartphone to the car’s BlueTooth. Oppo has worked on camera optimization as well. The new OS will have a redesigned camera app, Portrait mode 2.0 and image stabilization.
Oppo will roll out the Color OS 7 in China from 25 November. lt first will be released to Oppo Reno, Oppo Reno Inspiration Edition, Oppo Reno 10x Zoom, Oppo Reno Barcelona Custom Edition, Oppo Reno Ace, and Oppo Reno Ace Gundam Edition. Other Oppo phones will receive Color OS in the second phase. The second phase will start in December.
Realme, the subbrand of Oppo also uses the same OS. Apparently, the version of Color OS 7 that will come to Realme phones like the X2 Pro will be different from that which Oppo phones receive, and it’ll be much closer to stock Android. Realme smartphones will start receiving the Color OS by February 2020.
