Smartphone maker OPPO has announced its new ColorOS 7 operating system in an event held in New Delhi overnight. OPPO unveiled ColourOS’ Infinite Design concept as well as a series of tech solutions and fresh features, to deliver an effortless, user-centered experience. The update is expected to begin trial roll out from November 26th across various markets*.
Speaking of the launch, OPPO Australia Managing Director, Michael Tran said: “We’re thrilled to bring ColorOS 7 to our customers. At OPPO we are continuously improving not only our devices but also our operating system. ColorOS 7 will provide users with a faster and smoother experience when using our smartphones. The update not only reimagines the system design, but also enhances the audiovisual and gaming experience for users.”
A refreshing experience with Infinite Design
With Infinite Design, ColorOS 7 has adopted a lightweight visual approach that simplifies the user interface, allowing users to focus more on their content. Besides full icon customization, Dark Mode opens up a superb reading experience in all-day conditions, helping users to be more concentrated and reduce battery consumption.
User-centric interaction and sound upgrade
ColorOS 7 opens up more intuitive interactions. The new weather-adaptive alarm automatically adjusts alarm sounds to weather. In addition to the new Artist Wallpaper Project, users can now enjoy a vibrant range of dynamic wallpapers that change with time or a swipe. Meanwhile, an upgraded haptic design helps deliver clearer, crisper touch response sounds and a more realistic touch experience. There are also sharp, new animations for charging, weather, and deleting apps. Moreover, ColorOS collaborated with Denmark’s audio design company Epic Sound to upgrade the overall sound system.The new sound effects provide a more comfortable listening experience, not just for system controls, but ringtones, notifications, and beyond.
Faster than ever before
Driven by its UI-First concept, ColorOS developed oFas, oMem and oSense to ensure a smooth and fast experience that users can feel. oFas is a mechanism of cache preload, which makes cold starts as fast as warm starts, meaning apps can now open and start faster. Meanwhile, oMem adapts to user habits, shifting and allocating system resources accordingly and efficiently. Through this technology, RAM utilization is boosted by 40%. With multiple apps running, system response is also increased by 30%. Plus, oSense - a scheduling mechanism that gives priority to front-end and user related threads, optimizes touch response and frame rates, making gaming smoother than ever. When playing intense battle games, the touch response has been improved by 21.6% and the frame rate by 38%.
Safety first. Strengthened privacy for added protection
OPPO knows that privacy protection is more important than ever, and aims to secure user data. Personal information protection shields user information from third-party apps. Private Safe transfers photos, videos, audio, and other documents to a secure “zone” in the storage folder, blocking access by apps.
New features to enhance imaging and video
OPPO has always been known for its imaging capability, and ColorOS 7 brings this to the next level. AI Beautification 2.0 identifies the environment and measures light accordingly, to best match user skin tone. With clearer facial details, it captures the most natural and stunning looks.
Ultra Night Mode delivers exceptional nighttime photos, reducing noise to record moments like candlelit dinners and night markets with greater clarity, brightness, and color. Soloop, OPPO’s smart video editor, simplifies video shooting and editing so that beginners, too, can make beautiful videos and share them with a single tap.
*OPPO’s largest update to date, ColorOS 7 will be rolled out across 20-plus phone models, covering the Reno, Find, F, K, and A series models and the regions of China, South Asia, Southeast Asia, Europe, Asia-Pacific, and the Middle East. Starting from November 26th, users there will be able to experience the trial version.
