Oppo announced its custom Android skin, the ColorOS 6.0, with a plethora of features including fresh gradient interface, a new font style, and AI machine-learning capabilities to reduce power consumption. What the skin lacked, however, was an app drawer that comes in handy in looking through app information and uninstalling certain apps. Now, a new FAQ post on the Realme forum confirms that the ColorOS 6.0 will bring an app drawer to the list of features. This means Realme and Oppo phone users will not have to rely on a third party app in order to manage apps on their device.
On its weekly FAQ post on the Realme forums, the company confirmed that ColorOS 6.0 will be coming in with an app drawer. The post claims that this feature has been highly requested by the Realme users and is finally making its way to the devices with the next big update. The company also mentions that the feature will not be available by default and the users will have to turn it on by going to the Settings menu. This means ColorOS 6.0 will not be forcing its users to use the app drawer feature but it will keep the feature if someone happens to need it.
The company also mentions that in the future it will enable taking pictures by tapping on the fingerprint sensor. It will also bring a more optimized version of its browser that will help in reducing power consumption.
There is no word from the company as to the launch date of ColorOS 6.0, nevertheless, the company, while launching the skin in November, had said it will be available this year. Apart from the app drawer, the ColorOS 6.0 will also bring a bezel-less or ‘borderless’ design with a lighter color scheme. The new OS comes with a lot of white and gradient backgrounds to make the user interface appear simpler and more spacious. It also brings a new font called Oppo Sans, which Oppo has developed along with Chinese company Hanyi.
